Can you manually initialize a carousel/multi-carousel via Ja


Topic: Can you manually initialize a carousel/multi-carousel via JavaScript?

Winterrabe pro premium priority asked 9 months ago

I'm loading page content via an ajax call. In that new content is a multi-carousel but it does not work, because it can't get initialized on page load. The same problem also occors with the tooltips and I suppose that'll happen with every component that doesn't get initialized on page load.

I couldn't find any help in the API.

Hi. You can try this code from our API tab:

const myCarousel = document.querySelector('#myCarousel')
const carousel = new mdb.Carousel(myCarousel)

Here is something similar but it should prevent from double initialization:

document.querySelectorAll('[data-mdb-ride="carousel"]').forEach((el) => {
    let instance = Carousel.getInstance(el);
    if (!instance) {
      instance = new Carousel(el);
    }
  });

For tolltip try something like this:

document.querySelectorAll('[data-mdb-toggle="tooltip"]').forEach((el) => {
    let instance = Tooltip.getInstance(el);
    if (!instance) {
      instance = new Tooltip(el);
    }
  });

For multi-carousel try this:

document.querySelectorAll('.multi-carousel').forEach((el) => {
  new MultiCarousel(el).init();
});

Make sure to run this JS code after your page has loaded.
