Topic: Autocomplete reset/clear

Lumpenstein free asked 2 years ago

I got tasked migrating all of our applications from MDB4 to MDB5, but I am having trouble finding a solution to reset the options inside autocompleted inputs.

In MDB4 it was possible to clear it using the directive:


but that doesn't seem to exist anymore and I wasn't able to find a workaround, is there a way ?

E.g. An autocomplete input with options ["1", "2", "3"], when I type 1 and select it, even after resetting the persisted/displayed value, the dropdown only shows ["1"] until I manually update the input.

@Lumpenstein In MDB5 you just need to reset the value of the form control attached to the autocomplete input.

If you use ngModel:'');

If you use formControl: this.control.setValue('');
