When there are plenty of options, use a drop-down menu to display and select desired ones.


After version 2.5.0, the default width of el-select changed to 100%. When used in a inline form, the width will collapse. In order to display the width properly, you need to give el-select a specific width (eg: Example) .


This component requires the <client-only></client-only> wrap when used in SSR (eg: Nuxt) and SSG (eg: VitePress).
