Expected behavior When there are no items selected I want the selectinput (That I supply, in this case "Test") default (disabled) text to be shown

Example:<MDBSelect> <MDBSelectInput selected="Test" /> <MDBSelectOptions> <MDBSelectOption disabled>Test</MDBSelectOption> <MDBSelectOption value="1">Option 1</MDBSelectOption> <MDBSelectOption value="2">Option 2</MDBSelectOption> <MDBSelectOption value="3">Option 3</MDBSelectOption> <MDBSelectOption value="4">Option 4</MDBSelectOption> <MDBSelectOption value="5">Option 5</MDBSelectOption> </MDBSelectOptions> </MDBSelect>

Actual behavior The text is always "Choose your option" when no values are selected.. Resources (screenshots, code snippets etc.) I believe the problem lies within this piece of code of mdbreact.esm.js if (text.length === 0) { text = "Choose your option"; }


May i ask if the MDBootstrap multiselect React page have a bug? We are doing a project and needed it. We've tried copying the actual code provided in the website but unfortunately we've encountered an issue:

We've copied the multiselect with markup and it doesn't run correctly in our page. In the MDBootstrap website it has a Select All option but in our end the multiselect turns into a Single Select.

Another question: Can the multiselect handles a limit on when to show the total number of selected files?

For example we selected 3 options but when selecting the 4th options the value displayed will be the total options selected.

If the option selected is more than 3 that's when the will appear.

I'll be waiting for your reply, we needed to finish our tasks ASAP.

Thank you very much.

I'm using the mdbreact-4.13.0 version and I have the same problem that roots48.

This is my example:

<MDBSelect multiple>
  <MDBSelectInput selected="Choose, please" />
  <MDBSelectOptions search>
    <MDBSelectOption value="one">One</MDBSelectOption>
    <MDBSelectOption value="one">Two</MDBSelectOption>
    <MDBSelectOption value="one">Three</MDBSelectOption>

Although I'm expecting that the input's value would be Choose, please, the actual rendered value is Choose your option. This doesn't happen if I remove the multiselect prop.
