Topic: material_select multiple initially shows the first option which is incorrect.

joeynovak pro asked 4 years ago

On 4.4.5

If you use a multi select material_select() and you initially select no options it will show the first option in the label, even though it isn't checked.  It behaves correctly if you check, and then un-check an option.

To fix this, I changed line 39 of material-select.js to be:

var label = $select.find('option:selected').html() || (!$"[multiple]") && $select.find('option:first').html()) || '';
