Select Deprecated

React Bootstrap 5 Select

React Select fields components are used for collecting user provided information from a list of options.

Warning: This documentation is for an older version of the MDBSelect component, which has moved to the MDBSelectDeprecated one. We recommend using the latest one you can find here.

Note: Read the API tab to find all available options and advanced customization


Basic example

Select fields components are used for collecting user provided information from a list of options.

Basic select behaves like a native one and by default marks the first available option as selected. To change this setting, easily set the preselect property to false.

        
            
            import React from 'react';
            import { MDBSelectDeprecated } from 'mdb-react-ui-kit';

            export default function App() {
              return (
                <MDBSelectDeprecated
                  data={[
                    { text: 'One', value: 1 },
                    { text: 'Two', value: 2 },
                    { text: 'Three', value: 3, selected: true },
                    { text: 'Four', value: 4 },
                    { text: 'Five', value: 5 },
                    { text: 'Six', value: 6 },
                    { text: 'Seven', value: 7 },
                    { text: 'Eight', value: 8 },
                  ]}
                />
              );
            }
          
        
    

Multiselect

Add multiple property to the select element to activate multiple mode.

        
            
            import React from 'react';
            import { MDBSelectDeprecated } from 'mdb-react-ui-kit';

            export default function App() {
              return (
                <MDBSelectDeprecated
                  data={[
                    { text: 'One' },
                    { text: 'Two', selected: true, disabled: true },
                    { text: 'Three', selected: true },
                    { text: 'Four' },
                    { text: 'Five' },
                    { text: 'Six' },
                    { text: 'Seven' },
                    { text: 'Eight', selected: true },
                  ]}
                  multiple
                  label='Example label'
                />
              );
            }
          
        
    

Select with label

It is possible to add select label by setting the label property.

        
            
            import React from 'react';
            import { MDBSelectDeprecated } from 'mdb-react-ui-kit';

            export default function App() {
              return (
                <MDBSelectDeprecated
                  label='Example label'
                  data={[
                    { text: 'One', value: 1 },
                    { text: 'Two', value: 2 },
                    { text: 'Three', value: 3, selected: true },
                    { text: 'Four', value: 4 },
                    { text: 'Five', value: 5 },
                    { text: 'Six', value: 6 },
                    { text: 'Seven', value: 7 },
                    { text: 'Eight', value: 8 },
                  ]}
                />
              );
            }
          
        
    

Select with placeholder

Use placeholder property to set placeholder for select input. The placeholder will be displayed when input is focused and no option is selected.

        
            
            import React from 'react';
            import { MDBSelectDeprecated } from 'mdb-react-ui-kit';

            export default function App() {
              return (
                <MDBSelectDeprecated
                  data={[
                    { text: 'One' },
                    { text: 'Two' },
                    { text: 'Three' },
                    { text: 'Four' },
                    { text: 'Five' },
                    { text: 'Six' },
                    { text: 'Seven' },
                    { text: 'Eight' },
                  ]}
                  placeholder='Example placeholder'
                />       
              );
            }
          
        
    

Disabled select

Add disabled attribute to the select component to disable select input.

        
            
            import React from 'react';
            import { MDBSelectDeprecated } from 'mdb-react-ui-kit';

            export default function App() {
              return (
                <MDBSelectDeprecated
                  data={[
                    { text: 'One', selected: true },
                    { text: 'Two' },
                    { text: 'Three' },
                    { text: 'Four' },
                    { text: 'Five' },
                    { text: 'Six' },
                    { text: 'Seven' },
                    { text: 'Eight' },
                  ]}
                  disabled
                />
              );
            }
