RC5 component slides.js, init swiper

Hi there,

For months now I build an ionic 2 app, I’m using the slides component from beta 9 and today I want to upgrade to RC5 (RC3 to RC5) but I’m facing an issue with the rewrite of this component.

When my page with the slides component load I have this error :
swiper.js:84 Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property ‘classList’ of null
at initSwiper (swiper.js:84)
at Slides._initSlides (slides.js:693)

I’m not able to reproduce this error on a fresh new project and my actual one is quite too big to post it here (and I can’t publish this code) so I go further on this and try to understand why this is happening.

From what I saw in slides.js swiper is initialized two times, here :

At this moment my slider was not rendered so in the “_initSlide”, “var s = this;” return undefined…

And then the “_initSlide” function is called again this time using angular lifecycle :

with only the second call in afterContentInit everything is okey, “var s = this;” return an instance of the slider and all works perfectly.

I want to understand why there is two call to “_initSlide”, and why the first one occurs when nothing is rendered. Maybe it could help me to solve my problem.

Thanks for your input.
