choices.render = function(choice, position, options) {
  // do custom logic
  return '';
};

.choice

Create a new Choice object.

Params

  • val {String|Object}
  • returns {Object}: Returns a choice object.

Example

choices.choice('blue');

.toChoice

Returns a normalized choice object.

Params

  • choice {Object|String}

  • choice {string|Object}: One or more choices to add.

Example

choices.addChoice(['foo', 'bar', 'baz']);

.addChoices

Add an array of normalized choice objects to the choices array. This method is called in the constructor, but it can also be used to add choices after instantiation.

Params

  • choices {Array|Object}: One or more choices to add.

Example

choices.addChoices(['foo', 'bar', 'baz']);

.toGroups

Example

choices.toGroups({
  foo: ['a', 'b', 'c'],
  bar: ['d', 'e', 'f']
});

.separator

Params

  • separator {String}: Optionally pass a string to use as the separator.
  • returns {Object}: Returns a separator object.

Example

choices.separator();

.hasChoice

Returns true if a choice exists.

Params

  • val {Number}: The index or key of the choice to check for.
  • returns {Boolean}

Example

choices.hasChoice(1);
choices.hasChoice('foo');

.getChoice

Get a non-separator choice from the collection.

Params

  • idx {Number}: The selected choice index
  • returns {Object|undefined}: Return the matched choice object or undefined

Example

choices.getChoice(1);
choices.getChoice('foo');

.getIndex

Get the index of a non-separator choice from the collection.

Params

  • key {String}: The key of the choice to get
  • returns {Number}: Index of the choice or -1;

Example

const choices = new Choices(['foo', 'bar', 'baz']);
console.log(choices.getIndex('foo')); //=> 0
console.log(choices.getIndex('baz')); //=> 2
console.log(choices.getIndex('bar')); //=> 1
console.log(choices.getIndex('qux')); //=> -1

.get

Get the choice at the specified index.

Params

  • key {Number|String}: The name or index of the object to get
  • returns {Object}: Returns the specified choice

Example

const choice = choices.get(1);
//=> {name: 'foo'}
const choice = choices.get(1, 'name');
//=> 'foo'

.clear

Clear all choices from the instance. This is useful when you need to update the indices of choices without re-instantiating.

Example

choices.clear();

.key

Return the .key property from the choice at the given index.

Params

  • key {String}: Property name to use for plucking objects.
  • returns {Array}: Plucked objects

.check

Check the choice at the given idx.

Params

  • val {Number|Array}: The key(s) or index(s) of the choice(s) to check.

Example

choices.check(1);

.uncheck

Disable the choice at the given idx.

Params

  • idx {Number}: The index of the choice to enable.

Example

choices.uncheck(1);

.isChecked

Returns true if a choice is checked.

Params

  • name {String|Number}: Name or index of the choice.
  • returns {Boolean}

Example

const choices = new Choices(['foo', 'bar', 'baz']);

//=> false
choices.check('foo');
console.log(choices.isChecked('foo'));
//=> true

.toggle

Toggle the choice at the given idx.

Params

  • idx {Number}: The index of the choice to toggle.

Example

choices.toggle(1);
// radio mode
choices.toggle(1, true);

.swap

Swap two choices in the choices array.

Params

  • a {String|Number}
  • b {String|Number}
  • returns {Object}: Returns the Choices instance

Release history

v3.0.2

Added

  • adds array support to .isChecked

Fixed

  • ensures that choice groups are checked/unchecked based on group items

v3.0.0

Added

  • adds support for choice "groups"! This allows you to define an object of choice arrays, where each key in the object creates a choice group.

v2.0.0

Changed

  • renamed Move class to Actions
  • renamed choices.move property to choices.actions

Removed

  • removed .enable and .disable prototype methods from both Choice and Choices. These methods were ambiguous as they blurred the distinction between "enabling" a choice (meaning that it's "checked") versus enabling a property on a choice. If this is confusing, that's why they were removed.

Added

  • adds Actions class (previously named Move) for managing actions on choices
  • adds .addChoice prototype method, for adding a single choice after instantiation
  • adds .action prototype method to Choices, which calls a method on the Actions class
  • adds .check and .uncheck prototype methods (previously ambiguously named .enable and .disable)

Attribution

Some of the code in this library was initially based on the Choices class in Inquirer.
