Topic: Enable A Disabled Select

theotherguy priority asked 3 years ago

Expected behavior I am trying to enable a disabled select item. Im using $("#idofselect").data("disabled", false); The desired result is to enable the select. Actual behavior I have given a select element the class of select. The the select renders like it should. The problem I am having is that I dont know how to enable the select from disabled. Resources (screenshots, code snippets etc.) How do I access an existing select to enable it?

We already know about this problem and we need to fix it on our end. As a workaround for know please re-initialize your select component after change in disabled state:

<select #mySelect class="select"></select>

var mySelect = document.querySelector('#mySelect');
var selectInstance = mdb.Select.getInstance(mySelect);
new mdb.Select(mySelect, { disabled: false });
