The Select component is a dropdown menu that allows users to choose one option from a predefined list.

It's a versatile tool for collecting user input in situations where there are multiple, but not limitless, choices.

Use Case

  1. Filtering and Selection
    • Product Catalog
    • Search Results
    • Event Calendar
  2. Dynamically Changing Options
    • Dependent Dropdowns
    • Conditional Options
    • Personalized Offer
  3. Data Collection and Analytics
    • Survey Questions
    • Feedback Forms
    • Market Research
  4. Interactive and Engaging Designs
    • Customizable Options


  1. Search functionality: Integrate a search bar within the dropdown menu for quickly finding specific options in long lists.
  2. Dependent dropdowns: Link multiple select components, making the options in the second dropdown dependent on the selection in the first.
  3. Conditional options: Based on user input in other form fields, dynamically hide or show irrelevant options in the select list.
  4. Preview features: When users hover over an option, display a preview of what happens if they select it.

  1. The show() and hide() methods can also be used to control the visibility of a select component in response to user input.
  2. Fields refers to a component ID or a list of component IDs. You can fetch the ID from the Component Attribute panel in the Page Builder.
  3. Before using, make sure the component is hidden. This can be done using this.hide(fields) or by enabling the Hidden checkbox in the Component Attribute panel.
  4. Before using this.enable(fields), make sure the component is disabled. This can be done using this.disable(fields) or by enabling the Disabled checkbox in the Component Attribute panel.

    console.log('getValue', selectname);

  9. this.getComponent('component_ID')

    var selectname = this.getComponent('select_rzaltclo');
    console.log('getComponent', selectname);

  10. this.setData(Value)

     {"select_rzaltclo": "Option 2",});

  11. this.refreshFieldDataSource(datasource)

    const dataSource = 'Name Of The Data Source Function'


Name Description Icon

Form validation is the process of checking the data entered into a form to ensure that it's valid and complete.

This helps to prevent users from submitting forms with invalid data, which can cause problems for the application that's processing the form.

Form validation can be performed using a variety of methods, including:

Name Description
Required If enabled, then the field value can't be empty, otherwise an error message is emitted
Custom Validation Rules (rule, value, callback) => {
rule: Verification rule, you can view the verification configuration information through this parameter; rule.field can get the field identifier of the current verification
value: Value of the current field
callback: Callback function (must be called) upon completion of validation; callback('Error message')/ callback(new Error('Error message')). These are two ways to return an error message


  1. The callback() function is also called to verify success in the custom validation method.
