    <iron-selector>, IronSelectableBehavior, IronMultiSelectableBehavior

    iron-selector is an element which can be used to manage a list of elements that can be selected. Tapping on the item will make the item selected. The selected indicates which item is being selected. The default is to use the index of the item. iron-selector's functionality is entirely defined by IronMultiSelectableBehavior.

    IronSelectableBehavior gives an element the concept of a selected child element. By default, the element will select one of its selectable children when a 'tap' event (synthesized by Polymer, roughly 'click') is dispatched to it.

    IronSelectableBehavior lets you ...

    • decide which children should be considered selectable (selectable),
    • retrieve the currently selected element (selectedItem) and all elements in the selectable set (items),
    • change the selection (select, selectNext, etc.),
    • decide how selected elements are modified to indicate their selected state (selectedClass, selectedAttribute),

    ... among other things.

    IronMultiSelectableBehavior includes all the features of IronSelectableBehavior as well as a multi property, which can be set to true to indicate that the element can have multiple selected child elements. It also includes the selectedItems and selectedValues properties for working with arrays of selectable elements and their corresponding values (multi is true) - similar to the single-item versions provided by IronSelectableBehavior: selectedItem and selected.

    See: Documentation, Demo.



    npm install --save @polymer/iron-selector

    In an HTML file

        <script type="module">
          import '@polymer/iron-selector/iron-selector.js';
        <iron-selector selected="0">
          <div>Item 1</div>
          <div>Item 2</div>
          <div>Item 3</div>

    In a Polymer 3 element

    import {PolymerElement} from '@polymer/polymer/polymer-element.js';
    import {html} from '@polymer/polymer/lib/utils/html-tag.js';
    import '@polymer/iron-selector/iron-selector.js';
    class ExampleElement extends PolymerElement {
      static get template() {
        return html`
          <iron-selector selected="0">
            <div>Item 1</div>
            <div>Item 2</div>
            <div>Item 3</div>
    customElements.define('example-element', ExampleElement);
