Secondary initialize "mdb-select" is possible

Boris Akimenko pro asked 5 months ago

Hi guys!
Secondary initialized  $('.mdb-select').material_select(); gives multiple material view on already initialized selects.

So if I dynamically add some <select> element, then I have to get this element and initialize it instead just run $('.mdb-select').material_select().

Hi Boris,

Can You try to give select a new class each time You add the next select? Then You can initialize only this select without changing the others.

or destroy and create mdb-select, but's more expensive to browser cpu-usage


// Material Select Destroy $('.mdb-select').material_select('destroy');

Thank you Alex!
But destroy is not good way as you say :)
Init function must check selects by class which added when it initialized
