  And everything works perfectly Can you check if all JS files are included? As I can see in your code, ther missing bootstrap.js. And one jquery.js is enough, you don't need to include two or more version of them And, of course, material select is part of MDB Pro version, so check do you included proper version

See i have added my code below, check if there is something missing

BizRTC priority commented 4 years ago

I am using MDB 4.4.5 also i opened mdb.js file, I could not find the "mdb-select" function

Hi,
  1. You should move this: <script type=”text/javascript” src=”<?php echo site_url(‘assets/js/jquery-3.2.1.min.js’); ?>”></script> to the scripts part (before <!– Bootstrap tooltips –>)
  2. Then You have to add bootstrap.js file to Your project (just after jquery and before popper)
  3. In mdb.js file there is 'material_select' function (not mdb select)
Regards

BizRTC priority commented 4 years ago

yeah but if i do so it give me error for datatables, maybe thats because I initalize the datatables before the script linking,

Josip Tomašev premium commented 4 years ago

Hi Mikolaj, There is no harm if jquery is in the head of page, sometimes this can prevent problem with scripts which are smaller and load faster than jquery when it is in the footer of page. Regards Josip

Mikołaj Smoleński staff commented 4 years ago

But have You added bootstrap.js script? Without that select won't work correctly.

Josip Tomašev premium commented 4 years ago

???

Mikołaj Smoleński staff commented 4 years ago

If Your select is still not working, please send me Your zipped project via mail: m.smolenski@mdbootstrap.com.

Josip Tomašev premium commented 4 years ago

As I can see, BizRTC wrote that his page works now :)

Mikołaj Smoleński staff commented 4 years ago

OK, thanks Josip for Your contribution.

Josip Tomašev premium commented 4 years ago

I suppose you using datatables.js from https://datatables.net/download/? Do you included Bootstrap4 JS in your concatenated/minified version? If yes, I suggest to put datatables.js after popper.min.js and before mdb.min.js in your source. If not, add boostrap.min.js before mdb.min.js And repeating - material select are part of MDB Pro, you must found function 'material_select' in mdb.js ('.mdb-select' is CSS class, not function) Small tips: you do not need font-awesome.css twice in page header, and replace '>' with '>' - this can help

BizRTC priority commented 4 years ago

Yes this worked for me thanks

BizRTC priority commented 4 years ago

@Josip Tomosev, Select works for me in normal cases, but for datatables it does not. The generated HTML for datatables select number of rows is this : <div class="col-sm-12 col-md-6"><div class="dataTables_length" id="example_length"><label>Show <select name="example_length" aria-controls="example" class="form-control form-control-sm"><option value="10">10</option><option value="25">25</option><option value="50">50</option><option value="75">75</option><option value="100">100</option></select> entries</label></div></div> entries Still the select number of rows in now shown

Josip Tomašev premium answered 4 years ago


Are you putted second part in JS:  
// Material Select Initialization
 $(document).ready(function() {
    $('.mdb-select').material_select();
  });

BizRTC priority commented 4 years ago

it says : Uncaught TypeError: $(...).material_select is not a function

Josip Tomašev premium commented 4 years ago

You must include mdb.min.js in your page, before you can call this function.
