I have created a custom module in magento2. And created ui component form to save title and sort_order value, now I want to add brands as multi-select field in my module's form.

How to add a multi-select field for brands attribute options?

  • Hello, Your code created a multiselect field. I'm trying to get all brands options in multiselect options. – Vinaya Maheshwari Aug 29 '17 at 3:50

Add new field in UI form

<field name="group">
    <argument name="data" xsi:type="array">
        <item name="options" xsi:type="object">{Vendor}\{Module}\Model\Model\Source\Myvalues</item>
        <item name="config" xsi:type="array">
            <item name="dataType" xsi:type="string">text</item>
            <item name="label" translate="true" xsi:type="string">Your Label</item>
            <item name="formElement" xsi:type="string">multiselect</item>

Now create Myvalues.php to provide multiselect options at



namespace Vendor\Module\Model\Source\Myvalues;

class Myvalues implements \Magento\Framework\Option\ArrayInterface
    public function toOptionArray()
        return [
            ['value' => 1, 'label' => __('Test One')],
            ['value' => 2, 'label' => __('Test Two')],
            ['value' => 3, 'label' => __('Test Three')],

  • Thanks for your post, I have updated Myvalues.php to get brands options. – Vinaya Maheshwari Aug 29 '17 at 4:15
  • @VinayaMaheshwari SImple assign brand collection to option. Assign app/code/Vendor/Module/Model/ResourceModel/Brand/Collection to <item name="options" xsi:type="object"> OR you can get brand collection in MyValue.php and return collection array to toOptionArray(). – Prince Patel Aug 29 '17 at 4:31
  • Yes I updated code. – Vinaya Maheshwari Aug 29 '17 at 4:38
  • I want to ask what inside \Magento\Framework\Option\ArrayInterface ? – fudu Aug 14 '18 at 4:35
  • 1
    @fudu ArrayInterface is interface which extends OptionSourceInterface with toOptionArray() method – Prince Patel Aug 14 '18 at 5:27
