I'm currently making a custom ui-component for the adminhtml form which extends the default ui-select element. But the issue is that when I make a selection on this new ui-select all fields have their values cleared and if they are required the error appears.

I've been debugging for a while and have reached the conclusion that this issue appears down the line when the code gets to this.value(data) and also throws an exception.

Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'click' of undefined

The element which is clicked in this case is the same element from the normal ui-select.

This is the component's xml through which it's added to the form. And yes the options shouldn't be there but I couldn't figure out where to put it otherwise to make it work.

<field name="programs" class="Mirasvit\Affiliate\Component\Filters\Type\MultiplePrograms">
            <argument name="data" xsi:type="array">
                <item name="config" xsi:type="array">
                    <item name="label" xsi:type="string" translate="true">Programs</item>
                    <item name="componentType" xsi:type="string">field</item>

                    <item name="component" xsi:type="string">Mirasvit_Affiliate/js/component/multiple-programs</item>
                    <item name="filterOptions" xsi:type="boolean">true</item>
                    <item name="multiple" xsi:type="boolean">false</item>
                    <item name="options" xsi:type="object">Mirasvit\Affiliate\Ui\Account\Source\Program</item>

                    <item name="tableOptions" xsi:type="object">Mirasvit\Affiliate\Ui\Program\Source\ProgramsWithTiers</item>
                    <item name="tableValues" xsi:type="object">Mirasvit\Affiliate\Ui\Program\Source\AccountPrograms</item>
                    <item name="tableFields" xsi:type="array">
                        <item name="name" xsi:type="array">
                            <item name="label" xsi:type="string">Name</item>
                            <item name="type" xsi:type="string">text</item>
                        <item name="tier" xsi:type="array">
                            <item name="label" xsi:type="string">Tier</item>
                            <item name="type" xsi:type="string">select</item>
                        <item name="fixed" xsi:type="array">
                            <item name="label" xsi:type="string">Fixed tier</item>
                            <item name="type" xsi:type="string">checkbox</item>

This is the component's js file

], function (_, $, Abstract, registry) {
    'use strict';

    return Abstract.extend({

        defaults: {
            optionsCache: [],
            options: [],
            listVisible: false,
            tableOptions: [],
            tableValues: [],
            tableFields: {},
            currentSelected: [],

        toggleOptionSelected: function (data) {
            if (this.lastSelectable && data.hasOwnProperty(this.separator)) {
                return this;




            return this;

        cleanHoveredElement: function () {
            if (this.hoveredElement) {

                this.hoveredElement = null;

            return this;

And this is the component's php file

class MultiplePrograms extends Select

    public function prepare() {
        $config = $this->getData('config');

        /** @var ArrayHelper $helper */
        $helper = ObjectManager::getInstance()->get(ArrayHelper::class);

        if (isset($config['tableOptions']) && $config['tableOptions'] instanceof ArrayInterface) {
            $config['tableOptions'] = $config['tableOptions']->toOptionArray();
        } else {
            throw new \Exception('Missing tableOptions tag for multiple-options field');

        if (isset($config['tableFields'])) {
            $config['tableFields'] = $helper->nameToColumn($config['tableFields']);
        } else {
            throw new \Exception('Missing tableValues tag for multiple-options field');

        if (isset($config['tableValues']) && $config['tableValues'] instanceof ArrayInterface) {
            $config['tableValues'] = $config['tableValues']->toOptionArray();

        if (isset($config['options']) && $config['options'] instanceof ArrayInterface) {
            $config['options'] = $config['options']->toOptionArray();

        $this->setData('config', (array)$config);


I wan't to be able to store information in the value of this component so that it can be passed to the controller later

I found out why this was happening. The reason it was throwing that error is because this.value() contained all the form data and thus by setting this.value({anything}) to anything, would clear all of the fields stored and trigger the errors and the observers.
