Make mdb-select required

Topic: Make mdb-select required

Expected behavior

mdb-select vue component to be required in a form when wanted. How do I do this without having to edit the dom when the app renders?

Actual behavior

mdb-select vue component does not render with required html attribute

Resources (screenshots, code snippets etc.)

Here is how my select options are being rendered, assume the variables render correct data

 units.forEach((unit) => {
                'text': 'Building: ' + unit.building + ' Unit: ' + unit.unit_number,
        this.unit_options = [{
            'text': 'This is for a Property',
            'value': '',

        }, ...this.unit_options]

<mdb-select  v-model="unit_options" ref="unit_select" label="Select a Unit" icon="hand-pointer" validation required></mdb-select>

mdbSelect doesn't have a property required - the list of all properties can be found here: in the API tab. We offer this way of visual validation:

<mdb-select v-model="validateOptions" validation ref="validationSelect" resetBtn label="validate"/>
<mdb-btn size="sm" color="primary" @click.native="$refs.validationSelect.validate()">Validate</mdb-btn>

data() {
    return {
    validateOptions: [
        { text: 'Option nr 1', value: 'Option 1' }, 
        { text: 'Option nr 2', value: 'Option 2' }, 
        { text: 'Option nr 3', value: 'Option 3' }, 
        { text: 'Option nr 4', value: 'Option 4' }, 
        { text: 'Option nr 5', value: 'Option 5' }

To stop a form from submitting without a selected value, you need to preventDefault() if none of the options is selected. Kind regards, Magdalena
