1.1.4 • Public • Published


React component encapsulating the logic for filtering with select dropdown and text / dates. Comes with react-combo-select and react-datetime out of the box, but can take render props for select and date picker so you are not forced to use these two packages.


Peer dependencies: React and react-dom. Optional dependencies: react-combo-select, react-datetime *font-awesome(peer of react-combo-select) and moment(peer of react-datetime)

import { ComboSearch } from 'react-combo-search';

and include css file (you may include this in different way) *if you use react-combo-select and react-datetime you are gonna need their css also



We prepared code sandbox demo. Unfortunately, we haven't found the time to add some generic data for you to filter, but you can freely play around with component ot get the feel of what it does. See demo here


onSearch and selectData

There are two mandatory props: first one is "onSearch" which gets fired on submit. Second one is "selectData", which is a required prop in react-combo-select and populates select with options

import React, {Component} from 'react';
import ComboSearch from 'react-combo-search';
// You should not forget to include css
export default class FakeComponent extends Component {
    constructor(props) {
        this.searchCallback = this.searchCallback.bind(this);
    searchCallback(data) {
        // you may do something with form data here
        // like call API by async action creator, do client side filtering
        // and transform the data first if you need it in slightly different format
    render() {
        return (
                    selectData={['Name', 'Surname', 'Title', 'Date of birth']}
                    datePickerCriteria='Date of birth'


If you decide on using existing components, you may want to style them differently. You can also pass any prop to style these two in additionalSelectProps and additionalDatePickerProps, see next table.

datePickerCriteria string or array none One or more of the options from selectData prop on which we want to open a date picker, either a string or an array of strings (value prop)
selectRenderFn function none Function that returns jsx for your custom select component. Since select is a controlled component this function will get called like selectRenderFn(selectData, selectedText, selectedValue, changeCallback, ...yourArguments), where returning component sets its options to selectData, text to selectedText(optional), value to selectedValue and onChange to changeCallback.
selectRenderFnArgs array none Array of arguments that will get passed to selectRenderFn that you passed. Eg [1, 2, 3] will get spread as arguments

showRadioButtons boolean true If false, the buttons will not render
hasButton boolean false Shows "apply" button, and doesn't submit upon selecting date.
isInFetchingState boolean false If true, component will go into state where submit, destroying filters and date picker is disabled and there is visual indication that some data is being filtered
selectDefaultValue object First item in selectData prop option that is preselected in react-combo-select on component render, with value nad text props
validationCallback function (value) => { return value && value.length >= 3; } Function to run to validate text input, will get called with value as argument

Customizing and contributing

You can contact us in case you need some feature or want to contribute, but keep in mind we don't want to go overboard with trying to make this component a "swiss knife". It's possible that you may need additional className props, we haven't fully tested custom styling. Feel free to contact us should that be a case. You can also freely fork and play around with the project.
