Hey Guys,

i wanted to implement the MDB Lightbox. It´s working, but there are no controls to slide the image, or to close the lightbox, when the image is opened in the MDB Lightbox.

In your Doku are controls:

When i Try the lightbox in the Online MDB-Editor, there are no controls....

**Resources (screenshots, code snippets etc.)**

I am using your code from the website:

div class="row">
  <div class="col-md-12">
    <div id="mdb-lightbox-ui"></div>
    <div class="mdb-lightbox no-margin">
      <figure class="col-md-4">
        <a href="" data-size="1600x1067">
          <img src="" class="img-fluid">

The Lightbox component is a premium component, and according to our system, you use MDB Free version.

Please, provide us a number o your order or registered email to confirm your access to MDB Pro components and premium support.

Send it to me on email:

I have a similar problem (mdb pro user). The arrrows icons for next and previous image dissapear when tryng to render with mobile sizes, but at desktop screen is ok.


 <div class="row">
  <mdb-image-modal #lightboxComponent [modalImages]="images" type="margin"></mdb-image-modal>


  images = [
    { img: "", thumb: "", description: "Image 1" },
    { img: "", thumb: "", description: "Image 2" },
    { img: "", thumb: "", description: "Image 3" },
    { img: "", thumb: "", description: "Image 4" },

Hi. the code shows that you are using Angular. I suggest you set up a new topic by selecting the Angular technology. They will be able to answer your question exactly.

I had the same problem with the jQuery Pro version (even with the newest 4.17.0 version from Gitlab).

My solution was not including the modules itself once again (since they are included by default).

So, just add


And don't explicitly add


Hope this solves your problem because it took me 15min...

Css and js lightbox files are located in mdb.css and mdb.js. Re-importing them could actually cause errors. Where did you get the idea to import them separately? Did you find this information in our documentation?
