Retool v2.78 release notes

Select and Multiselect

We’ve overhauled two of our most popular components: Select and Multiselect. Like our new Input components, they have powerful new functionality including:

  • Expanded style editor support
  • Control over label position, alignment, and wrapping
  • More robust validation (e.g. min/max items for Multiselect)
  • Support for adding text and icons in the prefix and suffix
  • An optional tooltip with GitHub flavored markdown

Both components support full keyboard accessibility. For example, you can now use arrow keys to move between individual selected items. These components also have tons of new configuration options including:

  • Overlay height: set the maximum height of the dropdown
  • Combobox mode: set whether or not the component has an input field to support searching by text
  • Selection indicator: control whether the dropdown should show a checkmark on the selected item(s)
  • Empty state: set a message to display when the component has no options provided or when no options match the search term
  • Disabled: provide an array of values that should be rendered disabled or disable the entire component

New components you’d like to see us add? Let us know in our community forum!
