vue-next-select drop-down


Create multi-select drop-down field with VueJs plugin called vue-next-select. This plugin is simple use, light-weight and with many features. Such as:

  • Single select
  • Multiple select
  • Tagging
  • Group
  • Filtering / Remote Searching
  • Asynchronous support
  • No dependencies
  • Aims to follow WAI-ARIA for the combobox and listbox widget

How to use it?

1. Install the plugin with npm or yarn.

npm install vue-next-select

yarn add vue-next-select

2. Import the required component in your project, like this:

import { createApp } from 'vue'
import VueNextSelect from 'vue-next-select'

3. Now, register the component for further usage.

#Global Registration
const app = createApp({})
app.component('vue-select', VueNextSelect)

#local Registration
const app = Vue.createApp({
  components: {
    'vue-select': VueNextSelect,

4. In your view, add following:

#In vue-next-select, you need to pass an array of primitive values through an options prop:
<vue-select :options="['Red', 'Green']"> </vue-select>

#The options prop also accepts an array of objects. In this case, you need to pass an additional prop: label-by to display the options

<vue-select :options="[{ color: 'Red' }, { color: 'Green' }]" label-by="color"> </vue-select>
