Javascript Question

How can I make this js work on a button tag instead of anchor?

This is a plugin I found called dropit.js

I'm trying to use it on a button tag but it won't work, only a tags.

;(function($) {

$.fn.dropit = function(method) {

var methods = {

init : function(options) {
this.dropit.settings = $.extend({}, this.dropit.defaults, options);
return this.each(function() {
var $el = $(this),
el = this,
settings = $.fn.dropit.settings;

// Hide initial submenus
$el.addClass('dropit')
.find('>'+ settings.triggerParentEl +':has('+ settings.submenuEl +')').addClass('dropit-trigger')
.find(settings.submenuEl).addClass('dropit-submenu').hide();

// Open on click
$el.off(settings.action).on(settings.action, settings.triggerParentEl +':has('+ settings.submenuEl +') > '+ settings.triggerEl +'', function(){
// Close click menu's if clicked again

};

if (methods[method]) {
return methods[method].apply(this, Array.prototype.slice.call(arguments, 1));
} else if (typeof method === 'object' || !method) {
return methods.init.apply(this, arguments);
} else {
$.error( 'Method "' + method + '" does not exist in dropit plugin!');
}

};

$.fn.dropit.defaults = {
action: 'click', // The open action for the trigger
submenuEl: 'ul', // The submenu element
triggerEl: 'a', // The trigger element
triggerParentEl: 'li', // The trigger parent element
afterLoad: function(){}, // Triggers when plugin has loaded
beforeShow: function(){}, // Triggers before submenu is shown
afterShow: function(){}, // Triggers after submenu is shown
beforeHide: function(){}, // Triggers before submenu is hidden
afterHide: function(){} // Triggers before submenu is hidden
};

$.fn.dropit.settings = {};

})(jQuery);

Answer

change the trigger element to button.

 triggerEl: 'button'
