Topic: Multiselect , text picker widgets is not auto assigned in dynamic template loading

mortgagekart priority asked 1 year ago

We are using MDB bootstrap-mdb/plugins/js/all.min.js and bootstrap-mdb/js/mdb.min.js.If we use it with static pages it works very well.

We want to use it with dynamic templates of nunjucks , when i tried to inject the template fragment , in already loaded index page with bootstrap-mdb/plugins/js/all.min.js and bootstrap-mdb/js/mdb.min.js, it is not assigning or reinitialise the widget java script, Iis there any way by which we can trigger JS ?

Or What is the way to use MDB with dynamic templates ?

I don't really know nunjucks, but auto-initialization sometimes doesn't work for dynamically rendered content. If that's the problem, you must manually init the component via javascript. You will find info how to do it there:

Example code to fix all selects on the page:

const selects = document.querySelectorAll('.select')
selects.forEach((select) => {

Thank you for your reply , we tried to init it .

If i am facing same issue with plugin components like then how i should manually do initialisation of it. Are there any common methods which can init such widgets ?

It's basically the same for all components and you can find informations about it in the component's API in the 'usage' section. e.g.

For plugins, use:

const element = document.querySelector(<YOUR_SELECTOR>)
new PLUGINNAME(element)

For other components, use:

const element = document.querySelector(<YOUR_SELECTOR>)
new mdb.COMPONENTNAME(element)

or getOrCreateInstance(element) - it's sometimes better, because it ensures you won't init one component many times on a single element, which could possibly cause some errors.

const element = document.querySelector(<YOUR_SELECTOR>)

NOTE: You can check if component supports getOrCreateInstance on it's api section.

Every component supports new keyword, of course.
