Topic: Material Select - long dropdown scrolling problem

SGalway pro asked 4 years ago

Hi - I have a material-select with a long drop down list. I want to limit the height of the dropdown and have a scrollbar. My problem is that if a user closes the select by clicking outside the list then the next time the select opens it quickly scrolls back to the top. I would like the select to be set to the first item every time to avoid this scrolling effect.

Here's a snippet of the problem

I have tried to capture a blue event but it's not working.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

for now, we're in the middle of refactoring of Material Select and we also fix the above problem soon.
