Topic: Select control initialization

AndrewWiles free asked 2 years ago

Just getting started with MDB so I am probably just failing to load a resource but I am having trouble getting the select control to initialize. Hoping that you might be able to point me toward what I am missing from the code below:

----- stuff ----

<link href="~/Content/mdb/bootstrap.min.css" rel="stylesheet" />
<link href="~/Content/mdb/mdb.min.css" rel="stylesheet" />

----- stuff ----

<select class="select" multiple data-mdb-filter="true">
    <option value="1">One</option>
    <option value="2">Two</option>
    <option value="3">Three</option>
    <option value="4">Four</option>
    <option value="5">Five</option>
    <option value="6">Six</option>
    <option value="7">Seven</option>
    <option value="8">Eight</option>
    <option value="9">Nine</option>
    <option value="10">Ten</option>

------- stuff------

<script src="~/Scripts/mdb/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="~/Scripts/mdb/popper.min.js"></script>
<script src="~/Scripts/mdb/bootstrap.min.js"></script>
<script src="~/Scripts/mdb/mdb.min.js"></script>
<script src="~/Scripts/mdb/modules/dropdown/dropdown.min.js"></script>
<script src="~/Scripts/mdb/modules/dropdown/dropdown-searchable.min.js"></script>

    $(document).ready(() => {
        new WOW().init();

----- stuff ----

First of all, remove all bootstrap links (they are in conflict with our files) . Second, if you add mdb.min.js, there is no need to import separate modules. Maybe this instructions will help you

Keep coding,

I have removed all non mdb css and javascript and also removed the separate module references and cannot get any of the form examples to work.

I cannot get them to work even if I embed a code snippet from your documentation directly into the examples that ship in the download file system (e.g. "sign-up-page.html)

It seems that the code which should be interpreting md specific markup is not executing.

Do you have any errors in your console? Try these form examples with clean MDB-UI-KIT (without any changes, fresh download) and let me know if they work. But if I were to guess the reason of failure, I would blame "~" in your paths.

I have the same issue. Documentation speaks of a folder "plugins". But there is no plugin folder in the stuff we download.

Dawid Wajszczuk staff commented 2 years ago

  1. @timvangoethem the plugins folder is only available in our Pro Advanced package. It seems like you have only Pro Essential.
  2. As for issue with the select, do you have any errors in console? What is the code that you use for your select? What is the result (screenshot will help a lot)?
