Topic: Select object not updating displayed value

Dylan Keith free asked 4 years ago

Expected behavior: When the value of a select object is changed, the displayed selected object should be updated as well.

Actual behavior: Value is updated in the backend, but not displayed in the select object

Resources (screenshots, code snippets etc.)

This select object works fine: select class="browser-default custom-select"

but the mdb select object: select class="mdb-select md-form" does not update after changing the value via JS.

I've searched through the documentation a number of times and can't find anything on this, except for a message saying:

"In addition, you will need a separate call for any dynamically generated select elements your page generates."

But no information on what call to make.

Please advise,
