An auto-completing Laravel Nova search field.

Provides a capability of auto-completed searching for results inside a select input field.

Select Auto-Complete


You can install the package in to a Laravel app that uses Nova via composer:

composer require techouse/select-auto-complete


The API is extends Nova's default Select Field by adding these additional options:

  • default - OPTIONAL - Set the default value in case of an empty field. Default is null.
  • maxResults - OPTIONAL - Number of results to show at a time. Has to be a positive integer. Default is 30.
  • maxHeight - OPTIONAL - Height of select dropdown list. Default is 220px.
  • displayUsingLabels - OPTIONAL - List only the labels of the options list. Default is disabled and displays keys and labels.
  • placeholder - OPTIONAL - Use a custom placeholder.

Simply use SelectAutoComplete class instead of Select directly or alias it like the example below so you won't have to refactor too much existing code.

                  ->maxHeight('100px')         // limit the dropdown to a max height of 100px
                  ->required()                 // make the field required
