Topic: MDBSelect Multiple doesn't return selection

marebear free asked 2 years ago

Excepted: Returns selected value/text for multiple select

Results: Doesn't return anything. Per the documentation, either option is not working.

<MDBSelect getSelectedValue={(e)=>console.log(e)} className="class" />


<MDBSelect getData={(e)=>console.log(e)} className="class" />

I have also looked at other support tickets. getValue method triggers an endless loop. My solution is working for non multiple select, but not for multiple....why? Any thoughts on this?

import React from "react";
import { MDBSelect } from "mdb-react-ui-kit";
import { useFormikContext } from "formik";

function AppMultiSelect({ label, name, error, options }) {
  const { touched, errors, setFieldValue } = useFormikContext();

  const handleSelection = (submission) => {
    console.log(name, ">>", submission);
      setFieldValue(name, submission);

  return (
        getSelectedValue={(data) => {
      {errors[name] && touched[name] && (
        <p type="invalid" className="text-danger">

export default AppMultiSelect;

My options follow this structure:

options: [
      { text: "Option 1", value: "opt1" },
      { text: "Option 2", value: "opt2" },

We have been planning to make some minor changes in MDBSelect for some time and first of all ease getting the selected value. Do you get any errors? Or the console just does not print anything?

The console log doesn't print anything for getSelectedValue or getData for the multiple select.

getValue makes an endless loop.

Please note, that getSelectedValue works for the regular select. It is not working for the multiple select. Does that make sense?

Have you tried using getValue property?

marebear free commented 2 years ago

Thanks for responding!

Yes, per my pervious comment, getValue makes an endless loop.

My solution works for regular select, but not for the multiple select. I think there is something wrong with the multiple select...or if there is another property I'm not aware of. Do you have any other suggestions?

Sorry! I didn't notice. Unfortunately, the endless loop is a bug. We will try to fix it in this release (which is planned for October 18). Sorry for the inconvenience.
