I'm using the jQuery version of chosen and have not found a way, to set defaults. Would it be possible to set the defaults like e.g. for jQuery UI?


I have the same problem, i don't know how should i set a default from the drop down using chosen.jquery.min.js

Closing this in favor of #1387, a pull request to solve it. Any additional conversation should happen there.

@dolen I think your issue is a separate one. If you're just trying to set certain options as selected, just add the selected attribute to your option, like:

<select data-placeholder="Your Favorite Type of Bear" class="chzn-select">
  <option value=""></option>
  <option>American Black Bear</option>
  <option>Brown Bear</option>
  <option selected>Polar Bear</option>
  <option>Spectacled Bear</option>

The "Polar Bear" option will be selected by default.
