Get Instance of Sidenav

Topic: Get Instance of Sidenav

MIGU premium asked 1 year ago

How do get the instance of the sidenav from the html document?

I want to hide the sidenav with the hide() method in my ts file.

I tried in .ts: var element = document.getElementsByClassName("sidenav"); var sidenavInstance = mdb.Sidenav.GetInstance(element); sidenavInstance.hide();

HTML: <mdb-side-nav #sidenav class="side-nav" [fixed]="false">

Does not work in Angular...

FYI: Cannot upload Screenshots and Support page is extrem slow???!

This syntax is only valid in MDB5 (vanilla js) version. In Angular you need to use ViewChild decorator to get access to the component instance. For example:

import { SidenavComponent } from 'ng-uikit-pro-standard'

@ViewChild('sidenav') sidenav: SidenavComponent;

Then use hide method inside your method or ngAfterViewInit hook:

ngAfterViewInit(): void {
