Topic: Mdb Select Form reset replaces placeholder to empty value

kausar.kapadia pro asked 5 years ago

I am using latest version of MDB(6.2.5) till 6.2.3 this issue was not there. I am using mdb-select component along with reactive forms. The same form is re used after submitting  so we will reseting entire form after submit. In that scenario when ever we reset or setValue using any false value(undefined, null, '') Placeholder  value is disappeared.  
<div style="width: 200px; padding: 20px;">

MdbSelect: <mdb-select



placeholder="Choose a type"




toggleSelectVals() {


this.testData= (this.toggle?this.tData1:this.tData2);

if (this.toggle) {


// this.tForm.get('nSelect').setValue(2);

} else {



this is the HTML and Typescript code im using to reset(sample code).
When we change value of selectbox (select a value) from HTML and then reset the value Then place holder disappears.

The problem with placeholder will be fixed in next version of MDB Angular. @Helmar Bachle This topic is about bug in mdb-select. What is the problem with image display?

I have found the root cause for this but i will not be able to fix it from our end.It would be best if you guys provide a fix for this. When the value is once selected hasSelected value is being set to true and when the value is empty or null or undefined hasSelected value is not being reset again. pro commented 5 years ago
