What does it do?

Angular component providing an input field for searching / filtering MatSelect options of the Angular Material library.

Example

Try it

See it in action at https://stackblitz.com/github/bithost-gmbh/ngx-mat-select-search-example

Important Note: This project is meant as a temporary implementation of https://github.com/angular/material2/issues/5697. The goal is to have an implementation in the official Angular Material repository, once https://github.com/angular/material2/pull/7835 is merged.

How to use it?

Install ngx-mat-select-search in your project:

npm install ngx-mat-select-search

Import the NgxMatSelectSearchModule in your app.module.ts:

import { MatFormFieldModule, MatSelectModule } from '@angular/material';
import { NgxMatSelectSearchModule } from 'ngx-mat-select-search';

@NgModule({
  imports: [
    ReactiveFormsModule,
    BrowserAnimationsModule,
    MatSelectModule,
    MatFormFieldModule,
    NgxMatSelectSearchModule
  ],
})
export class AppModule {}

Use the ngx-mat-select-search component inside a mat-select element by placing it inside a <mat-option> element:

<mat-form-field>
  <mat-select [formControl]="bankCtrl" placeholder="Bank" #singleSelect>
    <mat-option>
      <ngx-mat-select-search [formControl]="bankFilterCtrl"></ngx-mat-select-search>
    </mat-option>
    <mat-option *ngFor="let bank of filteredBanks | async" [value]="bank">
      {{bank.name}}
    </mat-option>
  </mat-select>
</mat-form-field>

See the example in https://github.com/bithost-gmbh/ngx-mat-select-search/blob/master/src/app/app.component.html and https://github.com/bithost-gmbh/ngx-mat-select-search/blob/master/src/app/app.component.ts how to wire the ngx-mat-select-search and filter the options available. Or have a look at https://github.com/bithost-gmbh/ngx-mat-select-search-example to see it in a standalone app.

Template driven forms

You can alternatively use it with template driven forms as follows:

<ngx-mat-select-search ngModel (ngModelChange)="filterMyOptions($event)">

Labels

In order to change the labels, use the inputs specified in the API section as follows:

<ngx-mat-select-search [formControl]="bankFilterCtrl" 
                       placeholderLabel="Find bank..." 
                       noEntriesFoundLabel="'no matching bank found'"></ngx-mat-select-search>

To use the i18n API for translation of the labels, add the corresponding i18n-... attributes:

<ngx-mat-select-search [formControl]="bankFilterCtrl" 
                       placeholderLabel="Find bank..." 
                       i18n-placeholderLabel
                       noEntriesFoundLabel="'no matching bank found'"
                       i18n-noEntriesFoundLabel></ngx-mat-select-search>

API

The MatSelectSearchComponent implements the ControlValueAccessor interface. Furthermore, it provides the following inputs:

Inputs

  /** Label of the search placeholder */
  @Input() placeholderLabel = 'Suche';

  /** Type of the search input field */
  @Input() type = 'text';

  /** Label to be shown when no entries are found. Set to null if no message should be shown. */
  @Input() noEntriesFoundLabel = 'Keine Optionen gefunden';

  /**
    * Whether or not the search field should be cleared after the dropdown menu is closed.
    * Useful for server-side filtering. See [#3](https://github.com/bithost-gmbh/ngx-mat-select-search/issues/3)
    */
  @Input() clearSearchInput = true;

  /** Whether to show the search-in-progress indicator */
  @Input() searching = false;

  /** Disables initial focusing of the input field */
  @Input() disableInitialFocus = false;

  /** Enable clear input on escape pressed */
  @Input() enableClearOnEscapePressed = false;

  /**
   * Prevents home / end key being propagated to mat-select,
   * allowing to move the cursor within the search input instead of navigating the options
   */
  @Input() preventHomeEndKeyPropagation = false;

  /** Disables scrolling to active options when option list changes. Useful for server-side search */
  @Input() disableScrollToActiveOnOptionsChanged = false;

  /** Adds 508 screen reader support for search box */
  @Input() ariaLabel = 'dropdown search';

  /** Whether to show Select All Checkbox (for mat-select[multi=true]) */
  @Input() showToggleAllCheckbox = false;

  /** select all checkbox checked state */
  @Input() toggleAllCheckboxChecked = false;

  /** select all checkbox indeterminate state */
  @Input() toggleAllCheckboxIndeterminate = false;

  /** Display a message in a tooltip on the toggle-all checkbox */
  @Input() toggleAllCheckboxTooltipMessage = '';

  /** Define the position of the tooltip on the toggle-all checkbox. */
  @Input() toogleAllCheckboxTooltipPosition: 'left' | 'right' | 'above' | 'below' | 'before' | 'after' = 'below';

  /** Show/Hide the search clear button of the search input */
  @Input() hideClearSearchButton = false;

  /**
  *  Text that is appended to the currently active item label announced by screen readers, informing the user of the current index, value and total
  *  options.
  *  eg: Bank R (Germany) 1 of 6
  */
  @Input() indexAndLengthScreenReaderText = ' of ';
  
  /** Output emitter to send to parent component with the toggle all boolean */
  @Output() toggleAll = new EventEmitter<boolean>();

Customize clear icon

In order to customize the search icon, add the ngxMatSelectSearchClear to your custom clear item (a mat-icon or any other element) and place it inside the ngx-mat-select-search component:

<ngx-mat-select-search>
   <mat-icon ngxMatSelectSearchClear>delete</mat-icon>
</ngx-mat-select-search>

Custom content

Custom content with the CSS class mat-select-search-custom-header-content can be transcluded as follows:

<ngx-mat-select-search>
   <div class="mat-select-search-custom-header-content">something special</div>
</ngx-mat-select-search>

Known Problems

  • The currently selected option might be hidden under the search input field when opening the options panel and the panel is at the screen border.
