Ion-select default value


Hey guys,

Is it possible to display a default value on the ion-select component? I haven’t been able to find anything on it and the lack of a decent dropbox means i’d like to try make this look like one atleast. Also how would I get my text to fill the whole box?

      <ion-select [(ngModel)]="pickupLocation">
        <ion-option value="stuttgart">Pickup location Stuttgart</ion-option>
        <ion-option value="hamburg">Pickup location Hamburg</ion-option>

What it currently looks like:


The default value will be whatever is selected currently: IOW, whatever pickupLocation contains.


It contains nothign when the page loads. Thats why I ask the question.


So make it contain something.
