Topic: Multiselect with autocomplete and search

Magnus priority asked 1 year ago

Expected behavior Using multiselect component to be able to fetch async filtered server data

Actual behavior I find no example. I find good documented example for input, however not for select.

Resources (screenshots, code snippets etc.) Something similar to this. However code will not work.

Please advice.

Thanks Grzegorz Bujański!

I have now published snippet.

I can fill the select component with snippet you provided. However can't filter server data.

Is there a way, similar to input box, using Autocomplete? Or is there another way to fetch async filtered server data?

I see you tried to init both autocomplete and select as one component. Unfortunately, they don't work like this. These components must be used separately.

I have to point out that, select does not have asyncFilter option. Of course, it's possible to fetch data from the server and then create Select instance using fetched data data, but it will support only client-side filtering.

Unfortunately I am unable to open your snippet. You probably didn't click publish.

But I prepared a snippet for you that may help you:

In the snippet you will find a button that adds new options. All you have to do is make small changes to it - download data from the API and add it to the select in the same way as in the snippet
