Select component is a component that allows users pick a value from predefined options. Ideally, it should be used when there are more than 5 options, otherwise you might consider using a radio group instead.



Here's a basic usage of the Select component.

Editable Example

Changing the size of the Select#

There are three sizes of select : large (48px), default (40px) and small (32px).

Editable Example

Changing the appearance of the Select#

Just like the input component, select comes in 3 variants, outline, unstyled , flushed , and filled. Pass the variant prop and set it to either of these values.

Editable Example

Changing the icon in the Select#

As with most Chakra components, you can change the arrow icon used in the select. Simply pass the icon prop.

In case the custom icon size doesn't look right, you can pass the iconSize prop to change it.

🚨 This feature works in v0.5.1. Kindly upgrade if you need it

Editable Example

Overriding the styles of the Select#

Even though the select comes with predefined styles, you can override pretty much any property. Here's we'll override the background color.

The Select component composes PseudoBox so you can pass all PseudoBox props, and React.SelectHTMLAttributes.
