ComboBox

A dropdown list that allows users to type a value to filter the options.

import * as React from 'react';
import { ComboBox } from '@itwin/itwinui-react';

export default () => {
  const options = React.useMemo(
    () => [
      { label: 'Apple', value: 'apple' },
      { label: 'Banana', value: 'banana' },
      { label: 'Grapefruit', value: 'grapefruit' },
      { label: 'Lychee', value: 'lychee' },
      { label: 'Kiwi', value: 'kiwi' },
      { label: 'Orange', value: 'orange' },
    ],
    [],
  );

  return (
    <ComboBox
      options={options}
      inputProps={{ placeholder: 'Pick a fruit, any fruit' }}
    />
  );
};

The combobox component is a dropdown menu that allows filtering. Values can be selected either using mouse clicks or using the Enter key.

Variants

Controlled

The value property allows you to control of the selected value. If multiselect is enabled, value will be an array of values.

import * as React from 'react';
import { ComboBox } from '@itwin/itwinui-react';

export default () => {
  const [value, setValue] = React.useState('green');

  const options = React.useMemo(
    () => [
      { label: 'Red', value: 'red' },
      { label: 'Orange', value: 'orange' },
      { label: 'Yellow', value: 'yellow' },
      { label: 'Green', value: 'green' },
      { label: 'Blue', value: 'blue' },
      { label: 'Purple', value: 'purple' },
    ],
    [],
  );

  return (
    <ComboBox
      options={options}
      inputProps={{ placeholder: 'Select a color' }}
      value={value}
      onChange={setValue}
    />
  );
};

Messages

Add a message below the combobox with the message property.

import * as React from 'react';
import { ComboBox } from '@itwin/itwinui-react';

export default () => {
  const [value, setValue] = React.useState('');

  const options = React.useMemo(
    () => [
      { label: 'Helvetica', value: 'helvetica' },
      { label: 'Futura', value: 'futura' },
      { label: 'Verdana', value: 'verdana' },
      { label: 'Times New Roman', value: 'roman' },
      { label: 'Arial', value: 'arial' },
      { label: 'Rockwell', value: 'rockwell' },
      { label: 'Bodoni', value: 'bodoni' },
      { label: 'Garamond', value: 'garamond' },
    ],
    [],
  );

  return (
    <ComboBox
      options={options}
      message='This font will be used in your signature.'
      inputProps={{ placeholder: 'Choose a font' }}
      onChange={setValue}
      value={value}
    />
  );
};

Use the StatusMessage component if you want a more complex message. In the example below, StatusMessage is used to add an icon to the message.

import * as React from 'react';
import { ComboBox, StatusMessage } from '@itwin/itwinui-react';
import { SvgClock } from '@itwin/itwinui-icons-react';

export default () => {
  const [value, setValue] = React.useState('');

  const options = React.useMemo(
    () => [
      { label: '9:30 AM', value: '9:30' },
      { label: '10:00 AM', value: '10:00' },
      { label: '10:30 AM', value: '10:30' },
      { label: '1:00 PM', value: '1:00' },
      { label: '2:00 PM', value: '2:00' },
      { label: '2:30 PM', value: '2:30' },
      { label: '4:30 PM', value: '4:30' },
    ],
    [],
  );

  return (
    <ComboBox
      options={options}
      message={
        <StatusMessage startIcon={<SvgClock />}>
          Appointments run for 30 minutes.
        </StatusMessage>
      }
      inputProps={{ placeholder: 'Select appointment time' }}
      onChange={setValue}
      value={value}
    />
  );
};

Status

Comboboxes can have different statuses applied to them. A status will give the combobox a colored border and an associated icon below. The available statuses are:

  • positive
  • warning
  • negative

    ],
    [],
  );

  return (
    <ComboBox
      options={options}
      inputProps={{ placeholder: 'Select your state' }}
      onChange={setValue}
      value={value}
      status={value === '' ? 'negative' : 'positive'}
      message={value === '' ? 'Required' : ''}
    />
  );
};

Multiselect

Set the property multiple to true to allow users to select more than one value.

import * as React from 'react';
import { ComboBox, Label, InputGrid } from '@itwin/itwinui-react';

export default () => {
  const options = React.useMemo(
    () => [
      { label: 'Apartments', value: 'apartments' },
      { label: 'Houses', value: 'houses' },
      { label: 'Lofts', value: 'lofts' },
      { label: 'Condos', value: 'condos' },
      { label: 'Townhomes', value: 'townhomes' },
    ],
    [],
  );

  const [selectedOptions, setSelectedOptions] = React.useState([
    'townhomes',
    'condos',
  ]);

  return (
    <InputGrid>
      <Label htmlFor='housing-input'> Select housing type </Label>
      <ComboBox
        options={options}
        inputProps={{ id: 'housing-input', placeholder: 'Housing type' }}
        multiple
        value={selectedOptions}
        onChange={(selected) => {
          setSelectedOptions(selected);
        }}
      />
    </InputGrid>
  );
};

Virtualized

If you expect the combobox to have a very long list of items, you can set enableVirtualization to true. This will use virtualization for the scrollable dropdown list.

import * as React from 'react';
import { ComboBox } from '@itwin/itwinui-react';

export default () => {
  const [value, setValue] = React.useState('');

  const options = React.useMemo(
    () => [
      { label: 'Afghanistan', value: 'AF' },
      { label: 'Åland Islands', value: 'AX' },
      { label: 'Albania', value: 'AL' },

You can use a Label component alongside the combobox to add a label. Note that passing the same id to the label as htmlFor and to the combobox as id in inputProps will allow users to open the combobox by clicking on the label.

import * as React from 'react';
import { ComboBox, Label, InputGrid } from '@itwin/itwinui-react';

export default () => {
  const [breakfast, setBreakfast] = React.useState('');
  const [lunch, setLunch] = React.useState('');

  const breakfastOptions = React.useMemo(
    () => [
      { label: 'Oatmeal parfait', value: 'parfait' },
      { label: 'Waffle', value: 'waffle' },
      { label: 'Omelette', value: 'omelette' },
      { label: 'Breakfast sandwich', value: 'sandwich' },
    ],
    [],
  );

  const lunchOptions = React.useMemo(
    () => [
      { label: 'BLT', value: 'blt' },
      { label: 'Salad', value: 'salad' },
      { label: 'Chicken sandwich', value: 'chicken' },
      { label: 'Tortilla soup', value: 'soup' },
      { label: 'Fettucini alfredo', value: 'pasta' },
    ],
    [],
  );

  return (
    <>
      <InputGrid>
        <Label htmlFor='breakfast-input'>Breakfast</Label>
        <ComboBox
          options={breakfastOptions}
          value={breakfast}
          onChange={setBreakfast}
          inputProps={{
            id: 'breakfast-input', // passing id to inputProps so it can be used in Label htmlFor
            placeholder: 'Choose your meal',
          }}
        />
      </InputGrid>
      <InputGrid>
        <Label htmlFor='lunch-input'>Lunch</Label>
        <ComboBox
          options={lunchOptions}
          value={lunch}
          onChange={setLunch}
          inputProps={{
            id: 'lunch-input', // passing id to inputProps so it can be used in Label htmlFor
            placeholder: 'Choose your meal',
          }}
        />
      </InputGrid>
    </>
  );
};

Disabled items

To disable specific items in the list, add the disabled property to the options.

import * as React from 'react';
import { ComboBox } from '@itwin/itwinui-react';

export default () => {
  const [value, setValue] = React.useState('');

  const courses = React.useMemo(
    () => [
      { label: 'User Interface Design', value: '6620', hasPrereq: false },
      { label: 'Machine Learning', value: '6630', hasPrereq: false },
      { label: 'Quality Assurance', value: '5710', hasPrereq: true },
      { label: 'Data mining', value: '5130', hasPrereq: true },
      { label: 'Digital Forensics', value: '5350', hasPrereq: true },
      { label: 'Wireless and Mobile Networks', value: '3370', hasPrereq: true },
      {
        label: 'Software Reverse Engineering',
        value: '7720',
        hasPrereq: false,
      },
      { label: 'Web Application Development', value: '5000', hasPrereq: true },
      { label: 'Database Systems', value: '5120', hasPrereq: true },
    ],
    [],
  );

  const options = React.useMemo(
    () =>
      courses.map((course, index) => ({
        ...course,
        sublabel: `COMP ${course.value}${
          course.hasPrereq ? ' - needs pre-requisite' : ''
        }`,
        disabled: course.hasPrereq,
      })),
    [],
  );

  return (
    <ComboBox
      options={options}
      value={value}
      onChange={setValue}
      inputProps={{ placeholder: 'Select elective' }}
    />
  );
};

Loading

If you expect to take a while to retrieve the options, you can show skeletons in the options list while the items are loading. Use MenuItemSkeleton to achieve this as in the example below.

import * as React from 'react';
import { ComboBox, MenuItemSkeleton } from '@itwin/itwinui-react';

export default () => {
  const countriesList = React.useMemo(
    () => [
      { label: 'Afghanistan', value: 'AF' },
      { label: 'Åland Islands', value: 'AX' },
      { label: 'Albania', value: 'AL' },
      { label: 'Algeria', value: 'DZ' },
      { label: 'American Samoa', value: 'AS' },
      { label: 'Andorra', value: 'AD' },
      { label: 'Angola', value: 'AO' },

Custom renderer

The property itemRenderer allows you to customize the combobox more specifically. Note that for keyboard navigation to work, the returned element should use the id provided by this function. The isFocused state is calculated using this id and can be used for specifying the focus styling. If a MenuItem is returned, then focus styling is automatically handled.

import * as React from 'react';
import { ComboBox, MenuItem } from '@itwin/itwinui-react';

export default () => {
  const options = React.useMemo(
    () => [
      { label: 'Hour', value: 'hour' },
      { label: 'Day', value: 'day' },
      { label: 'Week', value: 'week' },
      { label: 'Month', value: 'month' },
      { label: 'Year', value: 'year' },
    ],
    [],
  );

  const [selectedValue, setSelectedValue] = React.useState('');

  const onChange = React.useCallback((value) => {
    setSelectedValue(value);
  }, []);

  const itemRenderer = React.useCallback(
    ({ value, label }, { isSelected, id }) => (
      <MenuItem key={id} id={id} isSelected={isSelected} value={value}>
        <em
          style={{
            fontWeight: isSelected ? 'bold' : undefined,
            textTransform: 'uppercase',
          }}
        >
          {label}
        </em>
      </MenuItem>
    ),
    [],
  );

  return (
    <ComboBox
      options={options}
      inputProps={{ placeholder: 'Select a country' }}
      value={selectedValue}
      onChange={onChange}
      itemRenderer={itemRenderer}
    />
