      imports: [
      // ...

    Define options in your consuming component:

    import { IMultiSelectOption } from 'angular-2-dropdown-multiselect';
    export class MyClass implements OnInit {
        optionsModel: number[];
        myOptions: IMultiSelectOption[];
        ngOnInit() {
            this.myOptions = [
                { id: 1, name: 'Option 1' },
                { id: 2, name: 'Option 2' },
        onChange() {

    In your template, use the component directive:

    <ss-multiselect-dropdown [options]="myOptions" [(ngModel)]="optionsModel" (ngModelChange)="onChange($event)"></ss-multiselect-dropdown>


    Import the IMultiSelectOption and IMultiSelectTexts interfaces to enable/override settings and text strings:

    // Default selection
    optionsModel: number[] = [1, 2];
    // Settings configuration
    mySettings: IMultiSelectSettings = {
        enableSearch: true,
        checkedStyle: 'fontawesome',
        buttonClasses: 'btn btn-default btn-block',

        checked: 'item selected',
        checkedPlural: 'items selected',
        searchPlaceholder: 'Find',
        defaultTitle: 'Select',
        allSelected: 'All selected',
    // Labels / Parents
    myOptions: IMultiSelectOption[] = [
        { id: 1, name: 'Car brands', isLabel: true },
        { id: 2, name: 'Volvo', parentId: 1 },
        { id: 3, name: 'Honda', parentId: 1 },
        { id: 4, name: 'BMW', parentId: 1 },

    Other examples

    Single select

    Although this dropdown is designed for multiple selections, a common request is to only allow a single selection without requiring the user to unselect their previous selection each time. This can be accomplished by setting selectionLimit to 1 and autoUnselect to true.

      selectionLimit: 1,
      autoUnselect: true,

    Use model driven forms with ReactiveFormsModule:

    import { IMultiSelectOption } from 'angular-2-dropdown-multiselect';
    export class MyClass implements OnInit {
        model: number[];
        myOptions: IMultiSelectOption[] = [
            { id: 1, name: 'Option 1' },
            { id: 2, name: 'Option 2' },
        ngOnInit() {
            this.myForm = this.formBuilder.group({
                optionsModel: [1, 2], // Default model
                .subscribe((selectedOptions) => {
                    // changes
    <form [formGroup]="myForm">
        <ss-multiselect-dropdown [options]="myOptions" formControlName="optionsModel"></ss-multiselect-dropdown>
