Topic: MDBDataTableV5 Sorting Issue

Denzil free asked 3 years ago


Seems sorting is reset on component re-render. Tried both MDBDataTableV5 and MDBDataTable - same behaviour.


<MDBDataTableV5 small sortable responsive theadColor="blue lighten-5"
                                  entriesOptions={[10, 20, 50, 100]}
                                  entries={100} pagesAmount={4}
                                  data={datatable} order={['uptime', 'asc']} className="mx-auto"/>

and also here

      label: 'Uptime %',
      field: 'uptime',
      sort: 'asc',

I have questions about your problem. Are you updating data or saving in some locale storage, server, etc.?

Denzil free commented 3 years ago

I use MeteorJS, reactive component, it uses React useEffect to re-render components on data changed. That is working perfectly fine for anything but datatable, for some reason. Here is some info about it

So in two words: data is in MiniMongo

I will try to find a solution for that. Thanks for the blog.

Thanks. please, keep me posted. If you want to see it in action below: wait up to 3 minutes and it data will be re-sorted.

I added the task about that because this took too much time for me to resolve it with a fast solution. Sorry about that.

Any update on this it doesn't work for numbers or currency. MDBDataTableV5 can we get a progress update? There are no admin templates for V5 of MDB. Until then can we get a hotfix for this table pushed to V4 and merged to V4 Pro? Would be much appreciated.

We will add admin templates to the MDB5 React in the next release (22.11). We also will try to fix this issue in MDB4 but it is hard due to the complicated component structure :(

Keep coding!
