Topic: Placeholder messing with select

infinity free asked 4 years ago

Hey Guys,

I have a select that I am calling $('.mdb-select').materialSelect(); on... Now if I populate values, It automatically selects the first one, which is not what I want.

So I have set data-placeholder='-- Please Select --' so that they manually have to choose the first one. But that did not work.

Because, I have jquery using the selected value as soon as it changes, and after populating this drop down, I see "-- Please Select --" as expected, when I choose the first time a value, and alert the value it's NULL.

If I change the value again the id it shows is 2 (which is the last one), If I then choose the first one again, it still alert's 2... It no longer changes the value.

It does seem to be quite inconsistent since one moment it works as expected and the next it does as explained above...

Any advise?

I will say this though. It looks like it only happens to the select's that I populate dynamically. The first select who's pre-populated does not have this kind of problem...
