Topic: Search within select Json API support

Thommy free asked 4 years ago


I would like to buy mdbootstrap pro, but we expect to have problems with the search within select (Link) feature. We use results from our database and therefore cannot write the results as options before entering the query.

Currently, we use semantic ui serach which connects to an api with json encoded output. This works perfectly for us, but if we change to mdbootstrap, we would like to keep that feature. Is there any api support for the bootstrap search ((we want autocomplete) or is it required to write down all database entries upfront?

I guess that is a common problem, but sadly we did not find a solution in the articles or the support forum.

Best regards and thank you in advance, Thomas
