Hello!
I am implementing Joomla 4 custom component and in which i have form fields with layout="joomla.form.field.list-fancy-select" which uses library https://github.com/Choices-js/Choices

i have added one checkbox to select/deselect all options besides one of the field as Choices does not have select/deselect all feature.


As per that i need instance of fancy select which i am unable to get from library. can you please suggest me what options do we have to get specific instance of select box.

Thanks

You can access with `choicesInstance` property of the `joomla-field-fancy-select` field, eg:
$fieldContainer.querySelector('joomla-field-fancy-select').choicesInstance

Thank you so much for response.
I have used:
const field = document.getElementById('jform_tags').closest('joomla-field-fancy-select');
const select = field.choicesInstance;
