Topic: mdb select on modal error

Salvador Criado free asked 3 years ago

Expected behavior

Actual behavior

The search input for select is not working inside a modal. I try to write inside but it's blocked.

I have trouble for the validations of the select field, wich are using the browser validations. For example if they are required, the form doesn't submit, but any message appear in the select box. I have seen that there is a solution for custom validation, but is there any way to show the message with the browser validation?

Do you use our validation from here or outer plugin? And could you make a snippet with your problem using our editor? You can find it there:

I'm using mdb5, so are not valid for me. Any way I'm using the browser default validation.

Here you have the fail with two error, search and validations:

We need to resolve the problem with a filter in a modal on our end, the fix should be available in the next update.

To use standard HTML validation, please try set validation option to true on the select element:

  <select class="select" data-filter="true" data-validation="true"></select>

Please insert min. 20 characters.
