PCF jquery & bootstrap: "error occured during initialization of control: AB.FirstPCF;Message: control.popover is not a function"

I am trying to create a PCF control with popover for a text field.

I have installed jquery, bootstrap, types/jquery, types/bootstrap.

In index.ts file I import jquery and bootstrap:

import * as $ from "jquery";
import * as Bootstrap from "bootstrap";

This is the code I use:

this.setPopover = (function () {
			var control = $(this.inputControl);
			if (typeof (control) == 'undefined') {
				setTimeout(this.setPopover, 500);
			else {
						content: (context.parameters.sampleProperty.attributes && context.parameters.sampleProperty.attributes.Description) || "Description is not available",
						placement: "right",
						trigger: "hover"

 and receive an error "error occured during initialization of control: AB.FirstPCF;Message: control.popover is not a function".

Any suggestion here?

Hi @eliz_talent , 

I think the problem is calling the setPopover directly after definition.
The definition of your controls should be inside the init method of your PCF.

Hope this helps!

Thank you, Diana for responding.

Unfortunately, I didn't manage to fix the issue. From other experience with PCF, it looks like the harness does not work properly with a lot of things in custom controls.
