I did and got full pagination control, with the following code to go to last page:

 $('#datatable').DataTable(); //where is datatable is my div wrapped datatable
                    let pageItems = $('#dtBasicExample_wrapper').find('.page-item');

but i got a console error and it didn't moved to last page as expected : enter image description here

Thank you.

Which package of the MDB are you using here? In the first question you've shown the snippet for the MDB5 and in the second question you are using the syntax for MDB4, which is why you will be seeing this error as DataTable is not a part of the MDB5.

I`m using MDB5, but i searched MDB5 for any similar code to achieve programmatically jumping to last page and didn't found. Can you help me?

Datatable has its own methods to jump to the last page. For the MDB5 Datatable just add data-mdb-full-pagination="true" to your element - first and last page arrows will show under your table:

Thank you for reply. but i want to achieve this jump on datatable loading. Ex: after adding data i want to automatically go to last page, or if you have proper solution to get current page and pass it to loading function.

I've updated my snippet so it shows how you can trigger opening the last page on datatable rerender. Please note isDataLoaded flag which prevents from opening the last page on every rerender (every page change rerenders Datatable).

Please add data-mdb-full-pagination="true" to your Datatable element :
