Topic: select cannot select blank option

Alistair Wilson priority asked 2 months ago


Expected behavior

Should be able to select the blank item after having another item selected from the server. It's important blank item work with validation still and trigger required when selected.

Actual behavior

Last option gets displayed in the select control instead of blank

Just adding this css fixed the issue I was having.

.select-fake-value { visibility: hidden; }

this tip works. but I hope it's just a temporary patch. There is definitely a bug. this bug is still here 06 dec 2022, mdb v 6.0.1

if selected is not used, we can select the blank option if selected is used, we can not select the blank option

The solution is to put something as value. Then you can validate the value since it is not empty. Here is your example adjusted: https://mdbootstrap.com/snippets/standard/kpienkowska/4426584

The trouble with that solution is that the validation passes however no value was selected

You need to add a javascript that will assess "blank" as invalid.

How do I get the validation to show then, since the control seems to have it's own?
