I am new at Magento 2,

UI multi-select component render store views group by websites and stores,

but when I am editing I need saved values of store views of certain record to be preselected in that multi-select.

class StoreViews extends \Magento\Cms\Ui\Component\Listing\Column\Cms\Options
     * @var SegmentFactory $segment
    protected $segmentFactory;

     * @var Segment $segmentModel
    protected $segmentModel;

     * @var  Http $reguest
    protected $request;

    public function __construct(SystemStore $systemStore, Escaper $escaper, SegmentFactory $segmentFactory, Http $request, Segment $segmentModel)
        parent::__construct($systemStore, $escaper);
        $this->segmentFactory = $segmentFactory;
        $this->segmentModel = $segmentModel;
        $this->request = $request;

    public function toOptionArray()
        $id = $this->request->getParams()['segment_id'];

        $model = $this->segmentModel;
        $segmentFactory = $this->segmentFactory->create();
        $segmentFactory->load($model, $id, 'segment_id');

        $currentValues = json_decode($model->getData()['store_views']);

        return $options;

            <argument name="data" xsi:type="array">
                <item name="options" xsi:type="object">CodePool\CustomModule\Ui\Component\Form\StoreViews</item>

<item name="default" xsi:type="string">1,2,3</item>

or with form:

                    'name' => 'countries',
                    'label' => __('Select countries'),
                    'id' => 'countries',
                    'values' => $allCountries,
                    'class' => 'status',
 $model->setData("countries", [1,2,3]); // value in $allCountries not lable
