    Web site, docs and demo


    react-select is very nice, but sometimes project requirements are beyond it's abilities



    import Select from "react-dropdown-select";

    and use as:

    const options = [
        value: 1,
        label: "Leanne Graham"
        value:  2,
        label: "Ervin Howell"
    <Select options={options} onChange={(values) => this.setValues(values)} />

    If your options don't have value and label fields, include labelField and valueField in the props:

    const options = [
        id: 1,
        name: "Leanne Graham"
        id:  2,
        name: "Ervin Howell"
    <Select options={options} labelField="name" valueField="id" onChange={(values) => this.setValues(values)} />

    options and onChange are the minimum required props
