set selected value in angular5 ng-select programmaticaly

Issue

I’m using angular5 ng-select component:
https://github.com/ng-select/ng-select
and try to set the selected value (programatically) when the container component first loaded (kind of default selected value set in the model).
I didn’t find any relevant attribute for it or for the isSelected for each item.
Here is my code (filtered):
HTML:

<ng-select [items]="filter.values"  bindLabel="text" bindValue="id" class="input-md" [(ngModel)]="filter.selectedValue"></ng-select>

Model:

export class FilterData
{
    Name : string;
    FormattedName : string;
    values : Filter[];
    selectedValue : Filter = null;
    constructor(filterData : FilterData)
    {
        this.Name = filterData.Name;
        this.values = filterData.values;
        this.selectedValue = typeof filterData.selectedValue == "undefined" ? null : filterData.selectedValue;
    }
}

export class Filter 
{
    public id: number;
    public text: string;
}

Solution

Just find the item

    let item = this.ngSelect.itemsList.findByLabel('label of the item');

and then set it back

    this.ngSelect.select(item);

you need a reference to ng-select in your angular component

    @ViewChild(NgSelectComponent)
    ngSelect: NgSelectComponent;
