Hello, could you please reproduce your issue in a snippet with MDB Snippets? Here is the link: It will be easier to debug your issue, as we will be referencing the same environment.

If you load mdb.min.js file before the content, you can try to do init by yourself after the DOM content loads

For example:

const options = {
  format: 'dd-mm-yyyy'
const myDatepicker = new mdb.Datepicker(document.getElementById('myDatepicker'), options)

I had the same issue. Current temporary fix is to import the datepicker specific JS files AFTER the DOM elements. See the code example below...

<div class="form-outline datepicker">
    <input type="text" class="form-control" id="mdb-date-picker">
    <label for="mdb-date-picker" class="form-label">Select a date</label>

<script type="text/javascript" src="/static/js/datepicker.min.js"></script>

Please note that in my project, the main mdb.min.js file(s) are linked BEFORE all of this content in the body.

Please insert min. 20 characters.
