Topic: How to disable MDB markup and handling of checkboxes and/or radio buttons on a page.

mslayton pro asked 5 years ago

I have a page that is using jQuery plugin jqGrid with checkboxes which are not getting handled properly with MDB Pro 4.5. How can I disable MDB Pro for just the checkboxes on this one page so the handling is done by jqGrid?

Hi Brian, this what I can offer you, in this case, is to comment or remove in mdb.scss file these two lines: @import "pro/forms"; @import "pro/radio"; and after that compile mdb.css once again without our styles for radio buttons.

I have this need as well for a form with radios.  I want to use MDB for everything except for my forms that use radio selectors. I have a javascript listener that checks for anytime the user makes a radio selection, but this will not work with MDB because MDB hides the actual radio controls.

My Code:

$(document).ready(function() {
$('input[type=radio]').click(function(event) {...}

I can not use the ids of the forms bc they are dynamically created, and I need to listen for anytime that a radio is clicked on any form.

Thank you in advance.

Best, Brian

Hi, do you use our SCSS files or only mdb.css file? Best, Marta

Hi, To understand well, you have a plugin with custom checkboxes which work wrong with MDB package and you would like to disable MDB styles for the site where you use this plugin? Tell me more information, please or maybe show me any demo? Best, Marta

Actually the opposite is the case. jqGrid plugin uses standard HTML checkboxes, MDB has customized checkboxes. I want to disable the MDB markup changes and revert to standard HTML checkboxes on one page of a website that uses jqGrid plugin.
