Topic: Popovers in Datatables

stefangregg priority asked 1 year ago


Hia,

I can't seem to get my popovers to init within an async dataTable. Is there any trick or requirement to get it to work?

Cheers!

DataTable

<div id="bankaccounts_table" data-mdb-full-pagination="true" data-mdb-fixed-header="true" data-mdb-loading="true" data-mdb-entries="50" data-mdb-hover="true" data-mdb-sm="true"></div>

-

  var dataTable = mdb.Datatable.getOrCreateInstance(
    document.getElementById(tableid),
    { columns, },
    { loading: true, entriesOptions: [10, 20, 50, 100, 200, 500, 1000] }
  );

  dataTable.update({rows: []},{loading: true});

  $.ajax({ url: '/controllers/pulldata.php',
    data: {"pulldataid":inputid,},
    type: 'post',
    success: function(response) {
      dataTable.update({rows: JSON.parse(response)},{loading: false});
    }
  });

Popover

<a class="me-1 badge badge-info popover" tabindex="0" data-mdb-toggle="popover" data-mdb-trigger="focus" data-mdb-content="Not approved">Awaiting Approver #1</a>

The popover is added dynamically in this case (it is not added before the page is loaded) and requires manual initialization. This should help:

const popoversEl = document.querySelectorAll('[data-mdb-toggle="popover"]');
popoversEl.forEach((popoverEl) => {
  const popover = new mdb.Popover(popoverEl)
})

This works great on first initialization, but after you sort a column it stops working.

You need to add an event listener on render.mdb.datatable event and init popovers every time it fires.
