Topic: mdb-select with fa icons or custom class icon

manuelcua pro asked 5 years ago

Hi, I can´t seem to figure out how to use the mdb-select with class based images like <i class="fa fa-home"></i> on the right side or any side of the Select Option. If anyone had success to do this, would you please tell me how you did it? .. Thank you!

Hi, we don't support this behavior at the moment. We will think about adding this in the future. You can try saving icon as a picture and then use select with icon.

Oh, well I figured out how to override so I did my own solution, I wish that you guys would be more collaborative with us developers than rather just say "It cant be done" There is one problem that is more urgent, when you use a normal HTML SELECT tag, you can use your keyboard to quickly go to the letter typed in the OPTION and select from there, but with mdb-select if you press a letter it does nothing, so there´s no quick search available, this is something that takes away a known and liked user experience for the cost of a Material Design selector that should not be taken away. Cheers
