Topic: Select fields generating extra inputs.

Aidan Lawson priority asked 10 months ago


Using RoR and Simpleform with MDB select inputs.E.g.

<%= f.input :our_dropdown, as: :select, collection: @list_of_something %>

For some reason a "select-wrapper-" div is being generated causing extra select inputs to be shown on the page.

something like:

<div id="select-wrapper-939533" class="select-wrapper">

We don’t know why this is being generated, but it seems to be from MDB… can you tell us what is generating this “select-wrapper” html?

In this example below the top select inputs are being generated, the timezone input is our own

MDB Select makes this wrapper. Our component works by hiding the native select and adding its own elements. Without it, we wouldn't be able to extend the select's capabilities, e.g. with secondary text and style the dropdown.
