Popover Not Showing directional arrow

MDB SupportCategory: MDB AngularPopover Not Showing directional arrow
avf456 Pro User asked 10 months ago in MDB pro, version:4

Hi Guys!

I am trying to implement the popover component, which is very similar to the tooltip component, but when i do, everything shows correctly except the arrow that can be either top, bottom, left, or right.

I checked the docs, and in the example it works, but when i copy and paste it into my project the arrow is missing, could you guys confirm the scss is correct and if so, could you share an example that i can try in my project?

This is the code i am using is exactly the same as the example page,

Hi there,

Please find below hotfix for the issue, we will include that within next release , please replace content of the following file


with following content:

import { ChangeDetectionStrategy, Input, Component, HostBinding, OnInit } from '@angular/core';
import { PopoverConfig } from './popover.config';
import { isBs3 } from '../utils/ng2-bootstrap-config';

 selector: 'mdb-popover-container',
 changeDetection: ChangeDetectionStrategy.OnPush,
 template: `
 <h3 class="popover-header" *ngIf="title">{{title}}</h3>
 <div class="popover-body">
export class PopoverContainerComponent implements OnInit {

@Input() public placement: string;
 @Input() public title: string;

@HostBinding('class.show') show = '!isBs3';
 @HostBinding('attr.role') role = 'tooltip';
 @HostBinding('class') class;

Problem with an invisible arrow in the tooltips will be fixed with the next release of MDB Angular.

I have the same problem as heath in the “tooltip” (not the popover)

Dear heath.frankel
I tried to reproduce your case on Firefox 60 @ Ubuntu 18.04, and for me, arrows are visible.
Please check link: https://screenshots.firefox.com/HvtBaPbuNRZ1W0Fs/localhost
Could you specify your environment, on which you can’t see the arrows?
Best Regards,

BTW we are just using the tooltip style from your library and the arrow is broken.

We are still having this issue in V6.2.1 (ng-uikit-pro-standard-6.2.1). When will this fix be available?
