updateSelectInput(session, inputId, label = NULL, choices = NULL,
  selected = NULL)

updateSelectizeInput(session, inputId, label = NULL, choices = NULL,
  selected = NULL, options = list(), server = FALSE)


session The session object passed to function given to shinyServer.
inputId The id of the input object.
label The label to set for the input object.
choices List of values to select from. If elements of the list are named then that name rather than the value is displayed to the user.
selected The initially selected value (or multiple values if multiple = TRUE). If not specified then defaults to the first value for single-select lists and no values for multiple select lists.
options A list of options. See the documentation of selectize.js for possible options (character option values inside I() will be treated as literal JavaScript code; see renderDataTable() for details).
server whether to store choices on the server side, and load the select options dynamically on searching, instead of writing all choices into the page at once (i.e., only use the client-side version of selectize.js)


Change the value of a select input on the client


The input updater functions send a message to the client, telling it to change the settings of an input object. The messages are collected and sent after all the observers (including outputs) have finished running.

The syntax of these functions is similar to the functions that created the inputs in the first place. For example, numericInput() and updateNumericInput() take a similar set of arguments.

Any arguments with NULL values will be ignored; they will not result in any changes to the input object on the client.


## Not run: ------------------------------------ # shinyServer(function(input, output, session) { # # observe({ # # We'll use the input$controller variable multiple times, so save it as x # # for convenience. # x <- input$controller # # # Create a list of new options, where the name of the items is something # # like 'option label x 1', and the values are 'option-x-1'. # s_options <- list() # s_options[[sprintf("option label %d 1", x)]] <- sprintf("option-%d-1", x) # s_options[[sprintf("option label %d 2", x)]] <- sprintf("option-%d-2", x) # # # Change values for input$inSelect # updateSelectInput(session, "inSelect", choices = s_options) # # # Can also set the label and select an item (or more than one if it's a # # multi-select) # updateSelectInput(session, "inSelect2", # label = paste("Select label", x), # choices = s_options, # selected = sprintf("option-%d-2", x) # ) # }) # }) ## ---------------------------------------------
