Issue opening a dropdown with - data-kt-menu-trigger='click'

Hi,

I’m using the Metronic 8 Demo4 React version. I’m facing an issue when I tried to add data-kt-menu-trigger=’click’ on a button which upon clicking, opens up a dropdown similar to Quick Actions. The issue is- it sometimes opens up, and sometimes doesn’t. Could I please get a solution to this?

Thanks.

Hi,

Could you investigate when it starts not opening? If it's after changing routes, then you can implement the next solution:
In your component add
const location = useLocation() // import from react-router
useEffect(() => { // import from react
MenuComponent.reinitialization() // import from assets/ts/components
}, [location])

It doesn't involve changing routes. Also, dropdown not opening is happening randomly.
Here is the code that I'm working on-

<div className='card-toolbar'>
{/* begin::Menu */}
<button type='button' className='btn btn-sm btn-light-primary' data-kt-menu-trigger='click' data-kt-menu-placement='bottom-end' data-kt-menu-flip='top-end'>
<KTSVG path='/media/icons/duotune/arrows/arr075.svg' className='svg-icon-3'/>View Popup
</button>

{/* begin::Menu 2 */}
<div className='menu menu-sub menu-sub-dropdown menu-column menu-rounded menu-gray-600 menu-state-bg-light-primary fw-bold w-200px' data-kt-menu='true'>

<div className='menu-item px-3'>
<div className='menu-content fs-6 text-dark fw-bolder px-3 py-4'>List of Popup's</div>
</div>

<div className='separator mb-3 opacity-75'></div>

<div className='menu-item px-3'>
<a href='#' className='menu-link px-3' data-bs-toggle='modal' data-bs-target='#kt_modal_popup_one'>
Popup 1
</a>
</div>

<div className='menu-item px-3'>
<a href='#' className='menu-link px-3' data-bs-toggle='modal' data-bs-target='#kt_modal_popup_two'>
Popup 2
</a>
</div>

<div className='separator mt-3 opacity-75'></div>

</div>
{/* end::Menu 2 */}
{/* end::Menu */}
</div>


So basically, a dropdown containing two items(each of them being a popup) should open up while the button is clicked.

Try to debug your comnent and check for which props/states React re-renders your component and put them into useEffect dependencies.

Also you can wrap MenuComponent.reinitialization() with setTimeout (with 100 ms) to be sure that your html is already in the DOM.
