Topic: mdb-select without initial selected

rentrent pro asked 4 years ago

Hi, When no selection made I want mdb-select to show label text, but it automaticly selects first option even it does not have "selected" attribute. Also is there way to set placeholder for mdb-select as in bootstrap-select? I did not find anything about it in documentation

Hi, In our MDB Select You'll need to use first option as a main title of select with 'disabled' and 'selected' attributes. Placeholders are available only in inputs components. The same situation is in Bootstrap Select. Regards

I bought pro package yesterday, already started to regret. 1. I don't understand why you made height of input and select different (I fixed it using custom css) 2. There should be an option to add placeholder to select elements. Here is how bootstrap-select provides it: Mustard Ketchup

All select options, methods and props are included in our documentation (, so I am surprised that You started to regret. Our mdb-select is a new component, made from basics. That's why there are some differences between it and other bootstrap standard components.
