Replace Native Select Elements With Custom Dropdowns – cSelect

Description:

cSelect is a custom select JavaScript library that replaces the native select elements with customizable, filterable dropdowns.

How to use it:

1. Import the cSelect.

import CSelect from './cselect.js';

2. Transform an exiting select element into a custom dropdown.

<select class="custom-select" name="testSelect" id="c-select" placeholder="Please select an option">
  <option disabled selected value> -- select an option -- </option>
  <option value="walls">The walls were shaking</option>
  <option value="earth">The earth was quaking</option>
  <option disabled value="mind">My mind was aching</option>
  <option value="cause-you">Cause you</option>
  <option value="shook">SHOOK ME ALL NIGHT LONG!</option>
</select>
const select = document.querySelector('.custom-select');
const cSelect = new CSelect(select, {
      // options here
});

3. Determine whether to enable the open/close animations.

const cSelect = new CSelect(select, {
      animated: true,
});

4. Determine whether to enable the live search functionality

const cSelect = new CSelect(select, {
      search: true,
});

5. Apply custom styles to the dropdown.

  position: relative;
}

.cSelect * {
  box-sizing: border-box;
}

.cSelect:focus {
  outline: 2px solid #2686f4;
