Topic: mdb-select binding and defaulting.

dnadeveloper priority asked 4 years ago

I’m having a difficult time using the mdb-select in a production environment that requires binding and reselecting items from stored values. In the past, I would do something like this: class="form-control fc-web h-55"> {{reportSubjectTarget.text}} The select would roll out my options in reportSubjectOptions and bind to the place I store the selected value reportBag.reportDefinitions[activeReportDef].reportSubjectSelections If I changed the selected value in the data, the list would show it. I’m not seeing how to accomplish this with mdb-select. How would I do it? Essentially, when I load my data model, I need all saved selections to be reflected in the select controls.

This was intended for the Vue tec. area. Didn't see a way to correct the post.

The snippet below shows that if you toggle selected key for one of the options the select's dropdown will update and change this option. What won't update is the list of items - to do that you would need to use some kind of watcher and forced update (as the change is deep). Let me know if this code snippet was helpful. Kind regards, Magdalena

          <mdb-col sm="6">
            <mdb-select multiple search selectAll :options="multiOptions" label="Example label" />
          <mdb-col sm="3">
            <p class="mb-0" v-for="(option, index) in multiOptions" :key="index" :class="option.selected && 'text-success'">{{option.text}}</p>
        <mdb-btn @click="multiOptions[3].selected = true">ok</mdb-btn>
import { mdbSelect, mdbRow, mdbCol, mdbContainer } from 'mdbvue';

export default {
  name: 'SelectPage',
  components: {
  data() {
    return {
      multiOptions: [
        { text: 'Choose your options', value: null, disabled: true },
        { text: 'Option nr 1', value: 'Option 1' }, 
        { text: 'Option nr 2', value: 'Option 2' }, 
        { text: 'Option nr 3', value: 'Option 3' }, 
        { text: 'Option nr 4', value: 'Option 4' }, 
        { text: 'Option nr 5', value: 'Option 5' }
