React Multiple Select – Metronic Theme and React Hooks

 In React JS, Web Development

This article introduces the React Multiple Select using React Hooks.

I have vendors in various cities who are providing service to their customers. The situation is I need to assign societies to vendors as per their preference. A vendor may provide service to multiple societies in an area.

For this, I used Metronic theme and React hooks – useEffect.

There is a list of vendors and now I want to assign societies to a particular vendor.

To do so I redirected to details of the vendor.

First, select a city, then an area and then I want a filtered list of societies from that area of the city.

 

React Multiple Select - Metronic Theme and React Hooks

Step 1 :
Fetched a list of cities using async-await with useEffect hook.

/* Get list of all Cities */

const apiUrl = API_ENDPOINT + “city_list/”;

useEffect(() => {

const fetchData = async () => {

const result = await axios(apiUrl).then(response => response.data)

.then((data) => {

setData(data.data);

let count = Object.keys(data.data).length;

setcount(count);

})

};

fetchData();

}, []);

/* End Get list of all Cities */

 

Step 2 :

Fetched a list of areas from the selected city using async-await with useEffect as —>

/* Get area list by City */

const apiUrlArea = API_ENDPOINT + “area_list/”;

useEffect(() => {

let postAreaData=”;

if(formdata.city_id && formdata.city_id !==”){

postAreaData = {city_id:formdata.city_id}

const fetchData = async () => {

const result = await axios.post(apiUrlArea,postAreaData).then(response => response.data)

.then((data) => {

setareadata(data.data);

})

};

fetchData();

}

},[formdata.city_id]);

/* End Get area list by City */

 

Here formdata contains details of the vendor to edit.

 

This code will get executed as we change City and we are able to get a list of all areas from the selected city.

 

Step 3 :

Now I have a city and area , I can get a list of all societies in that area.

/* Get Societies by City & Area */

const apiUrlGetSociety = API_ENDPOINT + “society_list”;

useEffect(() => {

let postCityAreaData = {

area_id:formdata.area_id,

city_id:formdata.city_id,

}

const temp_slist = [];

if(formdata.area_id && formdata.area_id!== ” && formdata.city_id && formdata.city_id!== ” ){

const fetchData = async () => {

const result = await axios.post(apiUrlGetSociety,postCityAreaData).then(response => response.data)

.then((data) => {

data.data.forEach(element => {

const obj_temp = {‘id’:element.id, ‘name’:element.name};

temp_slist.push(obj_temp);

});

 

setAllSocieties(temp_slist);

setShowLoading(false);

console.log(“allSocieties”);

console.log(temp_slist);

 

})

};

fetchData();

 

}

},[formdata.area_id,formdata.city_id]);

/* End Get Societies of Area */

 

Here I get a list of societies as an array of object – {id,name}

 

let  allSocieties = [ {“id”: 6,”name”: “Abhiruchi”}, {“id”: 2,”name”: “Sahara Society”}, {“id”: 3,”name”: “Satyam Society”},]

Now we have a filtered list of societies with respect to the area from the city.

Step 4 :

To show listing on form I used form-components from Metronics.

( https://keenthemes.com/metronic/preview/react/demo2/google-material/inputs/selects )

 

The Select component can handle multiple selections. It’s enabled with multiple property.

<FormControl className='form-control'>

<Select

multiple

name = “societies”

id = “societies”

value = { selectedSocieties }

onChange = { handleChange_multiple }

input = { <Input id=”select-multiple-chip” /> }

renderValue = { selected => (

<div className = {classes.chips}>

{ selected.map( s => {

const chipname = allSocieties.find(soc => soc.id === s);

return (chipname

?   <Chip

key={s}

label={chipname.name}

className={classes.chip}

data-aaa={JSON.stringify(allSocieties)}

/>

: ”)

})}

</div>

)}

MenuProps={MenuProps}

>

{ allSocieties.map((itemsociety) => (

<MenuItem

key={itemsociety.id}

value={itemsociety}

>

<Checkbox checked={selectedSocieties.includes(itemsociety.id) } />

<ListItemText primary={itemsociety.name} />

</MenuItem>

))}

</Select>

</FormControl>

 

In the above select component, we have passed selectedSocieties to value attribute.
selectedSocieties is an array of ids of societies which are already assigned to vendor.
I can get list of assigned societies to vendor as –>

 

useEffect(() => {

setShowLoading(true)

setformdata(props.data)

if(props.data.vendorSociety && props.data.vendorSociety !== ” && props.data.vendorSociety !== ‘undefined’ ){

props.data.vendorSociety.forEach(el => {

const obj = {‘id’:el.id, ‘name’:el.name};

temp_selected_slist.push(el.id);

})

setSelectedSocieties(temp_selected_slist);

 

}

}, [props.data]);

react multiple selection

After selecting one/more societies, handleChange_multiple event bind selected societies data to selectedSocieties . See the following code:

 

const handleChange_multiple = event =>{

 

let newitems = event.target.value.filter(t => typeof t !== ‘number’);

let changed = newitems[0].id;

let cleanthis = event.target.value.filter(t => typeof t === ‘number’);

newitems.forEach(i => cleanthis.push(i.id));

const newSelectedItems = selectedSocieties.includes(changed)

? selectedSocieties.filter(v => v !== changed)

: […selectedSocieties, changed];

setSelectedSocieties(newSelectedItems);

 

}

 

In the example given in Metronic , handleChange event deals with an array of the name only. In above we are dealing with an array of objects.
In the above code, in handleChange_multiple event, we get newly selected items as an object – newitems {id,name}. Then extract id from it and saved to changed. 

Now I can check with changed whether it exist in  selectedSocieties.

 

const newSelectedItems = selectedSocieties.includes(changed)

? selectedSocieties.filter(v => v !== changed)

: […selectedSocieties, changed];

setSelectedSocieties(newSelectedItems);

 

In above article , we learned how to use multiple select in combination with array of objects and obtain required results.
