Expected behavior How can I customize the icon that comes by default in the mdb-select? My intention is to remove the ▼ icon and replace it with an icon (< i class = "cch-arrow-down"> < /i >). Attached sample photo of the desired result.

Actual behavior mdb-select with icon (▼) by default. enter image description here

Unfortunately it won't be possible to overwrite this icon easily. We will need to make some changes in the code to provide a better way for those kind of customisation.

Mdb-select is a premium component, and according to our system, you use MDB Free version.

Please, provide us a number of your order or registered email to confirm your access to MDB Pro components and premium support.
