    🔍 Custom filter logic

    By default this component uses a fuzzy search algorithm to filter options but also allows you to opt-out and use your custom logic if you want to below is the example doing just case insensitive search

    export function filterOptions(options, filter) {
      if (!filter) {
        return options;
      const re = new RegExp(filter, "i");
      return options.filter(({ value }) => value && value.match(re));

    🌐 Internationalization

    You can easily Internationalize this component by passing prop overrideStrings so that UI strings can be presented in a different language

    default values for overrideStrings are as below

      "allItemsAreSelected": "All items are selected.",
      "clearSearch": "Clear Search",
      "noOptions": "No options",
      "search": "Search",
      "selectAll": "Select All",
      "selectSomeItems": "Select..."

    🎛 Custom Value Renderer

    Optionally customise value renderer view by passing valueRenderer prop

    const customValueRenderer = (selected, _options) => {
      return selected.length
        ?{ label }) => "✔️ " + label)
        : "😶 No Items Selected";

    🎛 Custom Item Renderer

    Optionally customise dropdown item by passing ItemRenderer prop

    Default Item Renderer

    💅 Themeing

    You can override CSS variables to customize the appearance

    .rmsc {
      --rmsc-main: #4285f4;
      --rmsc-hover: #f1f3f5;
      --rmsc-selected: #e2e6ea;
      --rmsc-border: #ccc;
      --rmsc-gray: #aaa;
      --rmsc-bg: #fff;
      --rmsc-p: 10px; /* Spacing */
      --rmsc-radius: 4px; /* Radius */
      --rmsc-h: 38px; /* Height */

    use !important if CSS variables are not getting applied
