Topic: mdb-select (Set the selected = true) no working

Troy Smith free asked 4 years ago

Expected behavior I should be able to default the items in the mdb-select to already selected or not selected.
Actual behavior I cannot set the values. I have tried using selected= true. But this does not work. I have confirmed that my FIRST object in my array is set to selected = true; But that has no impact on my mdb-select list. Resources (screenshots, code snippets etc.) Here is the code I am setting JS************************************************** onReply(){ this.groupOptionsSelect = [] let x = JSON.parse(localStorage.getItem('availableUsers')) for(let a of x){ let obj = { value:a.userid, label:a.fullname, email:, group:false, selected: false, } this.groupOptionsSelect = [...this.groupOptionsSelect, obj]

        this.groupOptionsSelect[0].selected = true
        this.selectedValue = '148'
        console.log('emails', this.groupOptionsSelect)

} getValues(emails){ console.log('Values', emails) } Here are the first two entries in my groupOptionSelect: value: 148 label: "Bernard, Jim" email: "" group: false selected: true

value: 738 label: "Betty, RN" email: "" group: false selected: false

Please provide html as well and fix formatting in your post because the code is unreadable.

You can find an example on how to set preselected default value in our documentations (there is an example for reactive forms as well):
