Topic: mdb-select multiselect: change text displayed

Giovanni De Stefano priority asked 4 years ago


I have a multi-select in a reactive form:

 <mdb-select formControlName="documentTypes"

When nothing is selected, the mdb-select shows the text set in the placeholder so I can do something like "Please select your options".

When something is selected, the mdb-select shows an horizontal list of labels of the selected options.

What I would like to do is: when all options are selected, I want mdb-select to show a custom text such as "All options are selected" instead of the horizontal list of labels of the selected options.

How can I achieve this?

Any help is much appreciated!

Thanks, Giovanni

It's not possible to customize this text in the current version of the mdb-select component. We have plans to add this feature but we can't provide an ETA yet.
