    select2 data structure

    type Select2Data = (Select2Group | Select2Option)[];
    export interface Select2Group {
        /** label of group */
        label: string;
        /** options list */
        options: Select2Option[];
        /** add classes  */
        classes?: string;
        /** template id  */
        templateId?: string;
        /** template data  */
        data?: any;
    export interface Select2Option {
        /** value  */
        value: Select2Value;
        /** label of option */
        label: string;
        /** no selectable is disabled */
        disabled?: boolean;
        /** for identification */
        id?: string;
        /** add classes  */
        classes?: string;
        /** template id  */
        templateId?: string;
        /** template data  */
        data?: any;
        /** hide this option */
        hide?: boolean;
    type Select2Value = string | number | boolean | object;
    type Select2UpdateValue = Select2Value | Select2Value[];
    export interface Select2UpdateEvent<U extends Select2UpdateValue = Select2Value> {
        component: Select2;
        value: U;
        options: Select2Option[];
    export interface Select2SearchEvent<U extends Select2UpdateValue = Select2Value> {
        component: Select2;
        value: U;
        search: string;
    export interface Select2RemoveEvent<U extends Select2UpdateValue = Select2Value> {
        component: Select2;
        value: U;
        removedOption: Select2Option;
    export interface Select2ScrollEvent {
        component: Select2;
        way: 'up' | 'down';
        search: string;


    Unique template

    <select2 [data]="data" [templates]="template">
        <ng-template #template let-data="data"><strong>{{data?.color}}</strong>: {{data?.name}}</ng-template>
    const data: Select2Data = [
            value: 'heliotrope',
            label: 'Heliotrope',
            data: { color: 'white', name: 'Heliotrope' },
            value: 'hibiscus',
            label: 'Hibiscus',
            data: { color: 'red', name: 'Hibiscus' },

    Template group & option

    <select2 [data]="data" [templates]="{option : option, group: group}">
        <ng-template #option let-data="data">{{data?.name}}</ng-template>
        <ng-template #group let-label="label">Group: {{label}}</ng-template>

    No difference in data structure. The template is defined by its type, option or group, automatically.

    Template by templateId

    <select2 [data]="data" [templates]="{template1 : template1, template2: template2}">
        <ng-template #template1 let-data="data">{{data?.name}}</ng-template>
        <ng-template #template2 let-label="label" let-data="data">{{label}} : {{data?.color}}</ng-template>
    const data: Select2Data = [
            value: 'heliotrope',
            label: 'Heliotrope',
            data: { color: 'white', name: 'Heliotrope' },
            templateId: 'template1',
            value: 'hibiscus',
            label: 'Hibiscus',
            data: { color: 'red', name: 'Hibiscus' },
            templateId: 'template2',


    If the overlay mode is used / activated, add to the project root in CSS (with ViewEncapsulation.None)

    @import '~@angular/cdk/overlay-prebuilt.css';

    CSS variables (doesn't work on IE11)

    It's possible to change different colors (and more) with CSS variables without having to modify them with ::ng-deep or other CSS rules :

    :root {
        /* label */
        --select2-label-text-color: #000;
        --select2-required-color: red;
        /* selection */
        --select2-selection-border-radius: 4px;
        --select2-selection-background: #fff;
        --select2-selection-disabled-background: #eee;

            to right,
            rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.26) 0,

        --select2-material-underline-invalid: red;

        --select2-material-option-selected-background: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.04);
        --select2-material-option-highlighted-text-color: #000;
