I have a lightning component which is basically a filter having two buttons, Apply All and Clear All. I would like to remove the selected values on a button click "Clear All"

The filter looks like below when the values are selected: enter image description here

The "Clear All" button should be able to remove the values from the drop down selection.

Component Markup:

<div class="slds-panel__header slds-hide" aura:id="P-Panel"> 
    <lightning:button variant="neutral" label="Clear All" onclick="{! c.ClearAll }" />
    <lightning:button variant="brand" label="Apply All" onclick="{! c.ApplyAll }" />

<div class="slds-size_medium slds-hide" aria-hidden="true" aura:id="P-Panel">

    <!-- Start of Program Type-->         
    <div class="slds-combobox_container">
        <div class="slds-text-heading_small">ProgramType</div>
        <div aura:id="program" class="slds-combobox slds-dropdown-trigger slds-dropdown-trigger_click" aria-expanded="false" aria-haspopup="listbox" role="combobox">
            <div class="slds-combobox__form-element slds-input-has-icon slds-input-has-icon_right" role="none">
                <input type="text" class="slds-input slds-combobox__input" id="combobox-id-1" aria-controls="listbox-id-1" autoComplete="off" role="textbox" placeholder="{!v.PinfoText}" readonly="" onclick="{!c.handleClick}" onmouseleave="{!c.handleMouseOutButton}" />
                <span class="slds-icon_container slds-icon-utility-down slds-input__icon slds-input__icon_right">
                    <lightning:icon iconName="utility:down" size="x-small" class="slds-icon slds-icon slds-icon_x-small slds-icon-text-default" />


            <div class="{!'slds-dropdown  slds-dropdown_fluid slds-dropdown_length-5' + v.dropdownLength}" onmouseenter="{!c.handleMouseEnter}" onmouseleave="{!c.handleMouseLeave}" role="listbox">
                <ul class="slds-listbox slds-listbox_vertical" role="presentation">
                    <aura:iteration items="{!v.picklistArr}" var="option" indexVar="index">

                        <li class="slds-listbox__item" role="presentation" data-id="chkmark" onclick="{!c.handleSelection}"  data-value="{!option.value}" data-selected="{!option.selected}">

                            <div class="{!' slds-media  slds-listbox__option_plain slds-media_small slds-listbox__option ' + (option.selected == true ? ' slds-is-selected' : '')}" role="option">
                                <span class="slds-media__figure">
                                    <lightning:icon iconName="utility:check" size="x-small" class="slds-icon-utility-check slds-current-color slds-listbox__icon-selected slds-icon_container" />



I am seeking help on the Java script controller function ClearAll, which can remove all the selected values on the press of a button.

Kindly advise


If you use data-selected attribute while displaying the drop down value, then on click on Clear all button, in controller you just need to set false to data-selected attribute. Like below -

<aura:attribute name="options_" type="String[]" />
<aura:iteration items="{!v.options_}" var="option">
    <li class="{!'slds-dropdown__item ' + (option.selected ? 'slds-is-selected' : '')}" role="presentation" onclick="{!c.handleSelection}" data-value="{!option.Name}" data-selected="{!option.selected}">
        <a href="javascript:void(0);" role="menuitemcheckbox" aria-checked="true" tabindex="0">
            <span class="slds-truncate">
                <lightning:icon iconName="utility:check" size="x-small" class="slds-icon slds-icon--selected slds-icon--x-small slds-icon-text-default slds-m-right--x-small" />

<lightning:button variant="neutral" label="Clear All" onclick="{! c.ClearAll }" />

ClearAll: function(component, event, helper) {

    var allOptions = component.get("v.options_");
      if(val.selected != undefined){
        val.selected = false;  //Making all selected dropdown values to false.
    component.set("v.options_", allOptions);
