bootstrap-select v1.14.0-beta2 Release Notes

Release Date: 2021-03-25 // 7 months ago
  • 🆕 New Features

    • 👍 #2505: Support Bootstrap 5

    🐛 Bug Fixes

    • 🐎 #2576: use vanilla JS selector to get first option (performance)
    • #2578: Fix allowClear so that it triggers change events


Previous changes from v1.14.0-beta

  • To install: npm install bootstrap-s[email protected].

    🚀 The highlight of this release is support for using Ajax/JSON as the data source. This includes a new source option, which supports 3 properties: data, load, and search. All 3 support a function that passes an array of options to the callback argument. Alternatively, an array can be set (probably more useful for data). If source.load is set, it will be called when reaching the bottom of the dropdown menu. If source.search is set, bootstrap-select's internal search functionality will be bypassed, allowing you to perform the search yourself. If performing a search and source.search is set, it will be called again when reaching the bottom of the dropdown menu.

    Example usage:

    $('#test2').selectpicker({source: {data: function (callback) {var array = [{text: 'Tent',icon: 'fa-camera'},{text: 'Flashlight',selected: true},{text: 'Disabled Option',disabled: true},{value: 'divider',divider: true},{text: 'Toilet Paper'}];callback(array);},load: function (callback, page) {$.ajax('/api/load-more', { data: { page } }).then((response) =\> callback(response.data))},search: function (callback, page, searchTerm) {$.ajax('/api/search', { data: { page, search: searchTerm } }).then((response) =\> callback(response.data))}}});
