Angular 2 Dropdown Options Default Value

Angular 2 - setting default value in dropdown when default is hard coded

Object attributes are case sensitive, in your object, attribute is called careProvider, but in your template, you are using searchModel.careprovider with lowercase p. I think you also have to use NgValue directive instead of value because you are using NgModel directive. So, this should work: it is not working

<select [(ngModel)]="searchModel.careProvider">
<option [ngValue]="0">All Pateints</option>
<option *ngFor="let user of practiceUsers" [ngValue]="user._id.$oid">

Set default value of dropdown in Angular 6

Set validation.min with required as well like below one.

supplierId: ["", [Validators.required, Validators.min(1)]]

supplierId is always greater zero so min(1) works for you.

Select default option value from typescript angular 6

You can do this:

<select  class='form-control' 
(change)="ChangingValue($event)" [value]='46'>
<option value='47'>47</option>
<option value='46'>46</option>
<option value='45'>45</option>

// Note: You can set the value of select only from options tag. In the above example, you cannot set the value of select to anything other than 45, 46, 47.

Here, you can ply with this.

Angular - Setting default value for dropdown - solutions not working?

The reason could be the type of values you are setting as default and the type of objects you are looping through.

The type is string here:

<mat-select (selectionChange)="doSomething($event)" [value]="language"> 
<mat-select (selectionChange)="doSomething($event)" [value]="English">

But it's JSON object here:

<mat-option *ngFor="let language of languages" [value]="language">

Make both the same type, both JSON objects or both strings.

If you use [value]="languages[0]" it would set default value using the first element of the languages array.

Angular 2, set default value to select option


4.0.0-beta.6 added compareWith

<select [compareWith]="compareFn"  [(ngModel)]="selectedCountries">
<option *ngFor="let country of countries" [ngValue]="country">

compareFn(c1: Country, c2: Country): boolean {
return c1 && c2 ? === : c1 === c2;

this way the instance assigned to selectedCountries doesn't need to be the identical object, but a custom comparison function can be passed, for example to be able to match an different object instance with identical property values.


If you want to use an object as value you need to use [ngValue] on the option element.

  <select name="select" id="select" [(ngModel)]="selectLanguage">
<option *ngFor="let item of selectOption" [ngValue]="item"

When selectLanguage has an options value assigned [(ngModel)]="..." will this one make the one selected by default:

import {Component} from '@angular/core';

selector: 'app-form-select',
templateUrl: 'default.component.html'
export class DefaultComponent {
private selectOption: any;
constructor() {
this.selectOption = [
id: 1,
label: "Select Language",
value: 0
}, {
id: 2,
label: "HTML 5",
value: 1
}, {
id: 3,
label: "PHP",
value: 2
}, {
id: 4,
label: "Javascript",
value: 3
this.selectLanguage = this.selectOption[0];
