Topic: SyntaxError: Invalid character '\ufffd'

cad-development free asked 4 years ago

When running a page with the MDB scripts installed I am getting the following error:SyntaxError: Invalid character '\ufffd'

This occurs for mdb.min.js but not for mdb.js

Also occurs for datatables.min.js

I am assuming it is something to do with the minifying process.

Any guidance would be appreciated.

Hi. How can i reproduce this error? You use framework like Laravel or Symphony or pure Js, HTML and CSS?

Thanks for the reply.

There is no framework. Simply installed MDB into a folder and on the index page called the latest JS. Bootstrap and MDB.

I check again, and still can't reproduce this error. Please show me your index page code.

Thanks for the reply Grzegorz

At the bottom of the I am loading the files as follows:

 <script src=""></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>

<script type="text/javascript" src="js/mdb.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="js/modules/material-select/material-select-view.min.js"></script>

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

I add this code on my test page and I still don't have any errors. I try load a few components on page, and still nothing.

I search inside MDB '\ufffd' and only one place where it's present is jQuery library. Are you sure this error is from MDB? Which js file is the error pointing to?

By the way, you don't need import material-select-view.min.js - it's already in mdb.js. And you should import popper.js.

Please insert min. 20 characters.
