SelectedFilters creates a selectable filter UI view displaying the current selected values from other components. This component is useful for improving selection accessibility of other components.

Example uses:

  • displaying all the user selected facet filters together in the main view area for better accessibility.
  • building mobile responsive views where it is not practical to show all the UI components in the main view.


Basic Usage

<SelectedFilters />

Usage with All Props

<SelectedFilters showClearAll={true} clearAllLabel="Clear filters" />


  • showClearAll enum ('never', 'always', 'default', true, false) [optional] (defaults to true). It behaves according to the following scenarios:

    • never: Clear All button is never shown.
    • always: Clear All button is shown based on values set by components.
    • default: Clear All button is shown for components which have selected values and showFilter={true}
    • true: Identical behavior to always.
    • false: Identical behavior to never.

    Note: showFilter prop doesn't affect Clear All behavior when showClearAll="always".

  • clearAllLabel string [optional] (defaults to 'Clear All') Sets the label for the clear all button.

  • onChange function [optional] Provides access to the current selected values. This enables you to retrieve the selected filters and current search state in a convenient way.

  • onClear function [optional] a callback function which will be called when a particular filter(value) has been removed from the selected filters, provides the component and value.


    onClear={(component, value) => {
        console.log(`${component} has been removed with value as ${value}`);
  • resetToDefault boolean [optional] When set to true and clearAll functionality is utilised, then it would set the filter's value to its default set value(the defaultValue prop) instead of null/ undefined. Defaults to false.

Most ReactiveSearch filter components have a prop showFilter (defaults to true) which can be used to control whether the component's selected state appears in the SelectedFilters component. There is also a filterLabel prop which controls how that component is displayed.


The showFilter and filterLabel prop updates are only reflected if the underlying query of the associated component has changed.

As an example, check MultiList usage to see how showFilter and filterLabel can be used.
