Topic: BUG: pass dynamic data to MDBSelect component

web_ntx premium asked 3 years ago

A similar question was asked by another user here.

The MDBSelect component does not display dynamically passed data. This is a major, app-breaking issue.

Here is some example code. In the TestChild component, the normal HTML select works as expected (uncomment it to check), but the MDBSelect component does not.

Please provide a solution for this issue as soon as possible.

TestComponent.js :

import React, { useState } from 'react';
import TestChild from './TestChild';

export default function TestComponent() {
  const [options, setOptions] = useState([]);

  return (
    <div className='mt-5 d-flex justify-content-center'>
      <input onChange={(e) => setOptions(' '))}></input>
      <TestChild options={options} />

TestChild.js :

import React, { useState, useEffect } from 'react';
import { MDBSelect } from 'mdb-react-ui-kit';

export default function TestChild({ options }) {
  const [data, setData] = useState([{}]);

  useEffect(() => {
    setData( => ({ text: d })));
  }, [options]);

  return <MDBSelect data={data} />;
  // return (
  //   <select>
  //     {, i) => (
  //       <option key={i}>{o.text}</option>
  //     ))}
  //   </select>
  // );

This data is being read by the component, just not displayed, as you can see in the image below.

We have recently had a change of work mode, resulting in a lack of releases. The changes in MDBSelect are already made and will be released probably in two weeks from now. Sorry for the inconvenience.
