Dropdown with highlighting (background Color) one of the value


I have a requirement with Drop down values to be populated from an API response. Where one of the value should be highlighted in different color in the drop down list with existing functionality to be remains same.

Firstly, welcome to the forums.

While we are primarily here to help people with their Free Code Camp progress, we are open to people on other paths, too. Some of what you are asking is pretty trivial in the Free Code Camp context, so you might find that if you’re not getting the instruction and material you need in your current studies, the FCC curriculum will really help you get started. At a modest guess I’d say investing a 4-5 hours working through the curriculum here will really pay off. You can find the curriculum at https://www.freecodecamp.org/learn.

With your current questions, we don’t have enough context to know what you already know or don’t know, so it is impossible to guide you without just telling you the answer (which we won’t do).

It is pretty typical on here for people to share a codepen / repl.it / jsfiddle example of what they have tried so that anyone helping has more of an idea of what help is actually helpful.

Please provide some example of what you’ve tried and I’m sure you’ll get more help.

Happy coding :slight_smile:

Thanks @JeremyLT : For briefing me about the forum. Sharing below the details.

<p-dropdown appendTo=“body” [options]=“availableVersions”
[(ngModel)]=“selVersion” [autoDisplayFirst]=“false”>

availableVersions : is an object from API response. Is list of versions available - Ex: [1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 2.0… 4.5]
activeVersion: is also an object from API response. From above list one of the List Item will be active one. Ex: 2.0 is active.

So in above drop down - have to highlight the list item “2.0” is different color inside the drop down on expansion.

Hope this will hold enough information - let me know if few more details required.
