@backyardKiwi has right.

MDB Angular works fine with Angular 7. We are preparing the compatibility with Angular 8, and the MDB 8 (compatible with Angular 8) will be released on 8th of July.

Best Regards,

Hi Rhaouari,

MDB Pro is currently made for Angular 7 - there are a few braking changes when migrating from 7 to 8, which you'll have to make manually.

I faced the same problem yesterday for a new project. For now I work directly with the MDB sources and have applied some hot fixes manually to keep working until the MDB folks deliver an updated version for Angular 8.

If I haven't missed anything, then it's basically just two fixes:

Changing the imports to the new location of DOCUMENT using:

import {DOCUMENT} from '@angular/common';

Then you'll have to add the missing second parameter to all ViewChild decorators. Basically that means adding ", {static: false}" or ", {static: true}" it's mostly false, but some need the true to work properly - a bit of trial and error.

Cheers, Kai
