[Fixed] Angular MatPaginator not working

Issue

I have 2 components. Both have mat-table and paginators and pagination is working for one component and not working for the other component though the code is similar. Below is my html:

<div class="mat-elevation-z8">

    <mat-table [dataSource]="dataSource" matSort>

      <ng-container matColumnDef="col1">
        <mat-header-cell *matHeaderCellDef mat-sort-header> Column1 </mat-header-cell>
        <mat-cell *matCellDef="let row"> {{row.col1}} </mat-cell>
      </ng-container>

      <ng-container matColumnDef="col2">
        <mat-header-cell *matHeaderCellDef mat-sort-header> Column2 </mat-header-cell>
        <mat-cell *matCellDef="let row"> {{row.col2}} </mat-cell>
      </ng-container>

      <!-- Different columns goes here -->

      <mat-header-row *matHeaderRowDef="displayedColumns"></mat-header-row>
      <mat-row *matRowDef="let row; columns: displayedColumns;">
      </mat-row>
    </mat-table>

    <mat-paginator #scheduledOrdersPaginator [pageSizeOptions]="[5, 10, 20]"></mat-paginator>
  </div>

And below is my code in component.ts:

dataSource: MatTableDataSource<any>;
displayedColumns = ['col1', 'col2', ... ];
@ViewChild('scheduledOrdersPaginator') paginator: MatPaginator;
@ViewChild(MatSort) sort: MatSort;
ngOnInit(): void {
    // Load data
    this.dataSource = new MatTableDataSource(somearray);
    this.dataSource.paginator = this.paginator;
    this.dataSource.sort = this.sort;
}

Similar code is working for the other component and table is getting rendered with the pagination properly, no clue what’s wrong with this code.

Any help would be really appreciated

Solution

I resolved a similar issue by surrounding the instantiation with a timeout. Try this :

setTimeout(() => this.dataSource.paginator = this.paginator);
