I have created a multi-selectbox using Ui component and getting data from a model to display in Option-fields.

Data is saving in my custom table. but when i click on the same product to edit, the selected options are not showing as selected.


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<form xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:module:Magento_Ui:etc/ui_configuration.xsd">
    <fieldset name="customproducts">
        <argument name="data" xsi:type="array">
            <item name="config" xsi:type="array">
                <item name="label" xsi:type="string" translate="true">Add values</item>

    <field name="myvalues">

               <item name="formElement" xsi:type="string">multiselect</item>



 use Magento\Backend\Block\Template\Context;
    use Myvendor\Mymodule\Model\ResourceModel\Item\Collection;
    use Myvendor\Mymodule\Model\ResourceModel\Item\CollectionFactory;

    class Myvalues implements \Magento\Framework\Data\OptionSourceInterface
        protected $_request;
        public function __construct(
             \Magento\Framework\App\RequestInterface $request,  
            Context $context,
            CollectionFactory $collectionFactory,
            array $data = []
            $this->collectionFactory = $collectionFactory;
            $this->_request = $request;

        public function getMyvalues(){
            return $this->collectionFactory->create()->getItems();

        public function toOptionArray(){
            $productId = $this->_request->getParam('id');
            $vals      =  $this->getMyvalues();
            $val_array = [];
            foreach($vals as $valrows){
                $val_array[] =["value" => $valrows->getId(),'label' => $valrows->getName()];
            return $val_array;

  • @RutveeSojitra. I have edited my question with code. i'm Using observer to save the values in my custom table. and it is saved perfectly but while editing the same product the values which are stored in my custom table are not reflecting back in this multiselect box. – Girish Aug 8 '18 at 5:37
