# Standard Select

Redux::addField( 'OPT_NAME', 'SECTION_ID', array(
    'id'       => 'opt-select',
    'type'     => 'select',
    'title'    => __('Select Option', 'redux-framework-demo'), 
    'subtitle' => __('No validation can be done on this field type', 'redux-framework-demo'),
    'desc'     => __('This is the description field, again good for additional info.', 'redux-framework-demo'),
    // Must provide key => value pairs for select options
    'options'  => array(
        '1' => 'Opt 1',
        '2' => 'Opt 2',
        '3' => 'Opt 3'
    ),
    'default'  => '2',
) );

# Multi Select

Redux::addField( 'OPT_NAME', 'SECTION_ID', array(
    'id'       => 'opt-multi-select',
    'type'     => 'select',
    'multi'    => true,

# Example Usage

This example in based on the example usage provided above. Be sure to change $redux_demo to the value you specified in your opt_name argument.

global $redux_demo;

echo 'Single Select value: ' . $redux_demo['opt-select'];
echo 'Multi Select value: '  . $redux_demo['opt-multi-select'][0];
echo 'Multi Select value: '  . $redux_demo['opt-multi-select'][1];

# Disabling "Clear" Icon

Sometimes you don't want the user to have a null value. The "clear" icon is easily removed by passing a value to the select2 argument. Be sure to define a default value or the field will start in a null state.

Redux::addField( 'OPT_NAME', 'SECTION_ID', array(
    'id'       => 'opt-multi-select',
    'type'     => 'select',
    'title'    => __('Disable Select2 Clear Button', 'redux-framework-demo'), 
    'options'  => array(
        '1' => 'Opt 1',
        '2' => 'Opt 2',
        '3' => 'Opt 3'),
    'default'  => array( '2' ),
    'select2'  => array(
        array( 'select2' => array( 'allowClear' => False ) ) )
) );
