Topic: Bootstrap 5 Select component not allowing an option with no value to be selected

richard.hetherington priority asked 3 months ago


*Expected behavior*Mark an option as selected on load - set in previous page loadBe able to select an option with no value so that the field can be reset / cleared if no options are valid (optional field)

*Actual behavior*Once an option is marked as selected using attribute, you can no longer select an option with no value. It remains on the same selected value as per page load.

Hi,

check out code in the snippet: https://mdbootstrap.com/snippets/standard/mlazaru/4315990#css-tab-view

const instance = mdb.Select.getInstance(selectEl).setValue('3')

Hi mlazaru, that would require modifying code across many, many websites to put a work around in for something that is standard html.

Why are options with no value not selectable?
