How to clean completly select2 control?

I'm working with the awesome select2 control.

I'm trying to clean and disable the select2 with the content too so I do this:


Ok, it works, but if i had a value selected all the items are removed, the control is disabled, but the selected value is still displayed. I want to clear all content so the placeholder would be showed. Here is a example I did where you can see the issue: http://jsfiddle.net/BSEXM/


<select id="sel" data-placeholder="This is my placeholder">
<option value="a">hello</option>
<option value="b">all</option>
<option value="c">stack</option>
<option value="c">overflow</option>
<button id="pres">Disable and clear</button>
<button id="ena">Enable</button>


$(document).ready(function () {

$("#pres").click(function () {

$("#ena").click(function () {


#sel {
margin: 20px;

Do you have any idea or advice to this?


Why all this trouble???


 $('#sel').select2('data', null);
