Topic: Question on Multiple-Select or Select, How to reset selected options?

ktakiya priority asked 11 months ago

Expected behavior when user clicked reset button to reset form, and then select control should be unselected value with initial states.

How do I use javascript API to empty my selected value?

Actual behavior

Resources (screenshots, code snippets etc.)

Called JS API mdb.Select.getInstance(select).setValue('');

You're right. Use the setValue('') method to achieve resetting value behaviour. If you do it on Multiple-Select, the Select itself stays empty, but if it comes to basic Select, it cannot stay empty, so it clears to the value of the first option provided.
