Topic: Default Value Material Select MDB PRO 5.1.1

itdev pro asked 6 years ago

how do you set the default value of Material Select? I was not able to find the solution in your current documentation.

Dear itdev, Why do you think, that Angular 5 does not support ngModel? Please try one more time use following code: component.html:
<mdb-select [(ngModel)]="selectedCharacter" [options]="dateOptionsSelect" placeholder="Choose time period"></mdb-select>
dateOptionsSelect = [

{ value: '1', label: 'Today', selected: true },

{ value: '2', label: 'Yesterday' },

{ value: '3', label: 'Last 7 days' },

{ value: '4', label: 'Last 30 days' },

{ value: '5', label: 'Last week' },

{ value: '6', label: 'Last month' }


Please remember to import FormsModule in your's app.module.ts. If this won't work to you, please check console. If console is empty, please let me know again. Best Regards, Damian

The issue is not resolved. The link you added is for MDBootstrap version 4. I am using version 5 and it does not support ngModel.

I asked same question before. I think this is a pretty important behavior and should be documented (for backwards compatibility in future updates).
