Topic: Using MDB in a NetSuite Custom Form (Suitelet)

Stefan Reeder priority asked 2 months ago


Oracle NetSuite's file cabinet is not a relational folder structure, so each library must be preloaded to get around the client side script ES5 limitation.

I can successfully load the MDB CSS and JS "all" files into the browser.

I have created an element tagged for the calendar:

<div class="calendar" data-mdb-calendar-init id="calendar"></div>

in the browser script, when looking at vars in the console, the Calendar module is present and no errors have been logged.

The following code is executed:

var calendarElement = document.getElementById("calendar")

var calendarInstance = Calendar.getInstance(calendarElement);

the calendarElement is a valid element, but Calendar.getInstance(calendarElement) is returning null.

a) has anyone successfully loaded MDB in a NetSuite "suitelet" form? b) could there be some initialisation that is not being triggered?

Problem with dropdown seems to be caused by wrong tags. Please reference navbar documentation basic example: https://mdbootstrap.com/docs/standard/navigation/navbar/

In dropdown you should use div tag. If it does not help create a snippet you use in it.

About dateicker problem.

Please provide code you use in html and JS you use to init and remove it.

Kamila, I was able to get some parts of MDB to load, including one of the Dashboard templates, but the accordion side menu does not function, and the dropdowns are not functioning. The fonts look a bit off too; default css not applying?

Sample view from MDB site: enter image description here

View from within Oracle NetSuite: enter image description here

The same advise I gave about calendar will apply to other component. I see that select on the image you've added is not initialized. You need to perform init for every type of component you use. It's easier with other components since they have getOrCreateInstance method. You can use query selector to target f.e. every dropdown on your page and use getOrCreateInstance on them to initiate component that were not present on the page load.

I used this code, but still have the dropdowns uninitialized:

const navBars = {}; document.querySelectorAll('[data-mdb-dropdown-init=""]').forEach(nav => { navBars[nav.id] = mdb.Dropdown.getOrCreateInstance(nav) })

Use this: document.querySelectorAll('.dropdown-toggle'').forEach((el) => { mdb.Dropdown.getOrCreateInstance(el); });

I tried it but still not working. Logged the result to the console.:

document.querySelectorAll(".dropdown-toggle").forEach(el => {<br> console.log(mdb.Dropdown.getOrCreateInstance(el));<br> });

Console shows:

1{ "_element": { "uidEvent": 6 }, "_config": { "offset": [ 0, 2 ], "flip": true, "boundary": "clippingParents", "reference": "toggle", "display": "dynamic", "popperConfig": null, "dropdownAnimation": "on", "mdbDropdownInit": "", "mdbDropdownInitialized": "true", "dropdownInit": null, "dropdownInitialized": true }, "_popper": null, "_parent": { "uidEvent": 8 }, "_menu": {}, "_inNavbar": true, "_menuStyle": "", "_popperPlacement": "", "_mdbPopperConfig": ""}1

If you can pm me, I can share the public url for this page.

Thanks Kamila. I've sent you an email.

Try usng JS init. Example of using new constructor instead of relaing on data-attributes is here: https://mdbootstrap.com/docs/standard/plugins/calendar/#section-customize-pickers

Maybe due to specifics of your setup auto inits are not performing on the pageload.


Stefan Reeder priority commented 2 months ago

Thank you. that works to initiate the calendar, but some cells have no day number in them.
