Select Rich: Overview

This web component is a 'rich' version of the native <select> element. It allows providing fully customized options and a fully customized invoker button and is meant to be used whenever the native <select> doesn't provide enough styling,theming or user interaction opportunities.

Its implementation is based on the following Design pattern:

export const main = () => html`
  <lion-select-rich name="favoriteColor" label="Favorite color">
    <lion-option .choiceValue=${'red'}>Red</lion-option>
    <lion-option .choiceValue=${'hotpink'}>Hotpink</lion-option>
    <lion-option .choiceValue=${'blue'}>Blue</lion-option>


  • Fully accessible
  • Flexible API
  • Fully customizable option elements
  • Fully customizable invoker element
  • Mimics native select interaction mode (windows/linux and mac)


npm i --save @lion/select-rich
import { LionSelectRich, LionOptions, LionOption } from '@lion/select-rich';
// or
import '@lion/select-rich/define';
import '@lion/listbox/define';

No need to npm install @lion/option separately, it comes with the rich select as a dependency
