Topic: MDBDatatable pagination entries dropdown don´t work. Version 1.5.0

Alecta priority asked 2 years ago

Expected behavior

Should return selected entry in pagination.

Actual behavior

Console showing: Warning: React does not recognize the getSelectedValue prop on a DOM element.

As we understand it, getSelectedValue is removed from MDBSelect for version 1.5.0 but function getValue is not applied in MDBDatatable component.

Or is there another solution?

Many thanks.

import React, { useState } from "react";

import { MDBDatatable, MDBSelect } from "mdb-react-ui-kit";

function App() {

  const [basicData, setBasicData] = useState({
    columns: ['Name', 'Position', 'Office', 'Age', 'Start date', 'Salary'],

Thanks for reporting that. Yes, currently the main method to get a select value is a getValue one which returns a whole object with a selected element. It is more efficient and useful for users. But due to quite a big amount of fixes we just missed that Datatables use the old method. Sorry for that, we'll fix it in the next release in about one week :)

Keep coding!
