javascript doesn't work for my components


Topic: javascript doesn't work for my components

Kelly Garvy pro asked 4 years ago

I am not a javascript person, so I just may have missed something about the js when I downloaded mdbootstrap.

I can't get any of the js components to work at all in my app. I have tried to use a few js components, like the `wow fade in` for the our landing page and I'd really like to use the in-line or modal editing feature but can't get that to work either.

Did I miss something? Do I need to put the js into a file in order for it to be referenced?

Thanks

What exactly is not working? Could you please create a snippet? Also, if you're not familiar with the JavaScript, please try our tutorials: https://mdbootstrap.com/education/bootstrap/

I just copy and pasted your table editor from here so that i could test it, and the add buttons work but the edit and delete buttons do not. Doesn't look like I can select a row.

I've gone through all of your docs but haven't found anything that would help explain if I'm doing something wrong regarding javascript.

I think the main question I have is - if I add the below elements to my site, do I need to add the js to the script tag? or shouldn't that already be called because my script tags are calling the mdb min files? is js not included in that?

Except the HTML code, you also need to initialize the DataTables component. Here you can find more information: https://mdbootstrap.com/docs/jquery/tables/datatables/


Kelly Garvy pro answered 4 years ago

I followed everything in the datatables getting started guide, but i am still getting an error that datatable is not a function. 


Jakub Mandra staff premium answered 4 years ago

Hi there,

Have you done all steps described below?

After downloading and extracting MDB package, open index.html file.

Then, below the linked CSS files add datatables file.

<!-- MDBootstrap Datatables  -->
<link href="css/addons/datatables.min.css" rel="stylesheet">

Next, below the linked JavaScript files add datatables file.

<!-- MDBootstrap Datatables  -->
<script type="text/javascript" src="js/addons/datatables.min.js"></script>

 

Could you please paste the whole code of your component so we can see in detail what is going on (whole html file)?

Also be aware of that the Table Editor is independent plugin which requires purchase (more information Getting started tab of Table Editor).

Best,
Jakub
