What is your product version? 11.1.0 What is your product type (Angular or MVC)? Angular 13 What is product framework type (.net framework or .net core)? .NET6

Hi support,

I am struggling with select2 component can you please help on this? But I thought that most of the Metronic controls or at least the most common one - were included in asp.net zero, but it's not the case right? Do you have plans to add more?

Anyway, I followed instructions I found in several posts on how to install and use it in Angular but either npm commands not working so I had to use yarn, or module couldn't be found after I added it in app.module.ts, or my entire application was full with compilation errors after jquery and bootstrap installations... so I revert back all changes

Can you please advise on how to install and use it? Is there any other similar control that comes out of the box and I didn't realize/discover it?

Thanks, Loizos

    Hi,

    We prefer to use native Angular components on Angular project. Instead of select2, we are using PrimeNG autocomplete, see https://www.primefaces.org/primeng/autocomplete. Does this work for you ?

    Hi ismcagdas,

    I'm sorry, I have only checked the ngx-bootstrap components and there was nothing there for this purpose... so now I see that PrimeNG do support dropdown list here: https://www.primefaces.org/primeng/dropdown, which is pretty much similar to select2, so can I use this one instead of autocomplete?

    Can I just import it in app.module.ts and use it, or you have to include it first in next releases? The same question goes for other components I see in PrimeNG list, can I just import them and use them?

    Thanks, Loizos

    Hi,

    PrimeNG DropdownModule is already included in AspNet Zero (admin-shared.module.ts), so you can use it in your pages. We don't use all modules/components from PrimeNG because it increases the bundle size. If you need any other component/module from PrimeNG, just search it in your project and import it if it is not already used by default AspNet Zero.
