Multi-select component

A multiselect field allows users to select several options from a list.


A multiselect field is a text field with a caret icon on the right.

Generally, it has a label which indicates the type of input associated with the field.

Be aware: Placeholders should be avoided.


When users click on the multiselect field, a dropdown window appears with a set of options.

Each option has a “+” or “-” icon, on the far right, to add or remove options.

When an option is added, it is displayed as a chip that can be removed by clicking on the X button or be toggled off in the dropdown.

If needed, the size of the field should adjust to show all selected options.



Since a multiselect is a clickable element, it has multiple states.

Each state is associated with a different color, providing visual feedback to users.
