Topic: Issue with Select fields within a td of a datatable not working

kelley premium asked 1 year ago

Expected behavior I have added a select field in a datatable/ which is to show the current value from the db and also contain a list of items you can change to which will update once the user clicks save.

Actual behavior The issue is that the select field will not populate.. once i take out (class="select") from the select control, it works but the field lacks any css. Resources (screenshots, code snippets etc.)

Our Datatable component is creating new HTML table element based on the one created by you and replaces them.

As you see, it doesn't take classes and data-attributes from basic <table> - this is why this issue occured.

However if you create <select> element without initializing mdb.Select and initialize it after new table is created.
