How to clear select input programatically while on focus?

See original GitHub issue

I am trying to add new options as user types and each option is added when the user types a comma. I’m trying to clear the select input field but no matter what I try, it just won’t. I have to click the field again before it disappears. I’ve tried the ff:

  • stateManager.setState({inputValue: ''})
  • manually changing the value of inputRef to empty string
  • calling force update on

its not working for me. my value is changed to null, undefined or even blank, the select component still has previous value.

Greetings everyone,

The text input can be cleared by making this a controlled input and passing an empty string to the inputValue

Here is a codesandbox demonstrating this with the specification of a comma triggering the addition of a new option value.

There are likely other optimizations that could be made, but this should be sufficient to show the use-case is possible and how to proceed.

I will be closing this issue, but can reopen if there are related issues or concerns.
