Welcome to ICon Select!

Have you ever wanted to have an easy to use component that looks exactly (almost) like a select tag with the added benefit of showing images, videos, webGL, or live streaming contents instead of words? Have you wanted to transform a select tag into a more meaningful drop-down when it comes to have a list of images, videos, webGLs, live streaming items to pick from? Have you thought of adding animation on images or having slide operation on user favorite items? If so, then welcome to Icon Select!

So... How it can be done?

your data set should follow the following pattern. You do not need to worry about the id and ownerId as they will be set by the component at initialization time.

export interface IconInfo {
    id?: number, // auto generated
    ownerId?: string, // auto generated
    name: string, // item display name
    value: string, // item source URL
    poster?: string, // if not image, URL to image representing video, stream, or webGL
    type?: string, // if undefined defaults to image. types are image, video, stream, webGL
    animation?: string, // animation type to be performed on item
    opacity?: number, // item transparency
    selected?: boolean, // if item is selected
    disabled?: boolean, // if item is disabled
    repeat?: boolean, // if image type, should it be repeat position
    molded?: boolean, // if image, should it be displayed as pattern
    favorite?: boolean // if is user favorite for animation

Run npm install @sedeh/icon-select in your application. and do either of the following:

Sample usage through using i-select component or i-select directive.

        (change)="updateOverlay($event)" >
        <option *ngFor="let x of overlayData" 
            [selected]="x.selected ? 'true' : null" 
    <ng-template #temp1>show something here...</ng-template>

<i-renderer *ngIf="selectedImage != null"

  <i-renderer *ngIf="selectedPattern != null"
    [opacity]="selectedPattern.opacity >= 0 ? selectedPattern.opacity : null"

It is that simple..!! setting up a template is optional if you want to add a message or a control on the dropdown.

Now, with the above sample, you can build a background display setup with endless possibilities!

PLEASE NOTE: for i-renderer tag, since type will toggle actual display from video to image or webGL, i recommend to call it last in the tag. i noticed it makes a great difference at startup when default selected item is a video.

Removed dependency to font-awesome. However, you can still use font awesome or any other fonts to display icons. Forexample, to use font awesome, simply call

    <i-select [controlls] = "myFonts">

where myfonts = {
    firstPage: 'fa fa-angle-double-left',
    previousPage: 'fa fa-angle-left',
    nextPage: 'fa fa-angle-right',
    lastPage: 'fa fa-angle-double-right'
