How do I make mdb-select searchable in Angular 6?
<mdb-select formControlName="bcadmin" [options]="list" placeholder="Birth Country"></mdb-select>

And two years later, I wonder if it works somewhere...

OK, my mistake, it was just a basic css organization probeme (div, row...). Sorry for the "tone" of my sentence

@bissounet did you manage to make the select with filter work?

Arkadiusz Idzikowski staff answered 5 years ago


You need to add [filterEnabled]="true" input. Other available inputs are listed in the API section of select documentation.

I would like to know aswell. In jquery mdb supports it by adding searchable="" to the select component. But that doesn't work in angular.
