Topic: Form with input fields lose formatting when there is a modal button in the form

jumpshotink priority asked 3 months ago

Expected behavior I have a form with input fields and a button for a modal. The form should show all of the formatting using the new "data-mdb-*-init" tags.

Actual behavior When I add the "data-mdb-modal-init" to the modal button, the formatting for the fields are lost. Also, we get the error "Uncaught TypeError: this._config is undefined"

Resources (screenshots, code snippets etc.) Expected Actual Error code

{# property ID #}
    <div class="col-sm-12 col-md mb-2 mb-sm-0 mx-1">
        <div class="form-outline" data-mdb-input-init>
            <input name="propertyID" id="propertyID" type="text" placeholder="PROPERTY ID" class="form-control" value="{% if this.session.has('info.propertyID') %}{{this.session.get('info.propertyID')}}{% endif %}">

    {# bedrooms #}
    <div class="col-sm-12 col-md mb-2 mb-sm-0 mx-1">
        <div class="form-outline" data-mdb-input-init>
            <input name="bed" id="bed" type="text" placeholder="# OF BEDROOOMS" class="form-control search-fields" value="{% if this.session.has('info.bed') %}{{this.session.get('info.bed')}}{% endif %}">

I need more details to help you. Inputs need to be initiated or updated after modal is shown.

But you also have an error from the modal itself. Can you recreate this bug in the snippets?

I created a snippet and realized that I had to position the actual modal in the same file as the form with the modal button. It works now - thanks.
