Topic: Choppy animation in mdb select dropdown

dxl pro asked 5 years ago

The dropdown animation for select is very choppy, especially if there's something underneath the select component. The dropdown takes almost 1 second to become opaque and usable. So user can temporarily see the things underneath the dropdown. It looks very sloppy.

We are facing the same issue

Could you please include some code or a link to live preview?

Hello guys, For this chopiness of animation: It's caused by opacity animation. If you want to remove case when before opacity turns to 1.0 text is still visible beneath dropdown, please head to
file located in:
and look for:
mdb-select-dropdown {} line (at end of the file)
In this selector, please change:
opacity: 0 to opacity: 1.0
This should help for you, guys.
Best Regards,

Will you be applying this fix to future releases?

Damian Gemza staff commented 5 years ago

We'll take a deeper look on this case to think how to solve it in right way :)

itdev pro commented 5 years ago

Did you guys implement a better solution for this. I do not like the idea of having to change your file every time I update to the latest version

Damian Gemza staff commented 5 years ago

Dear itdev, Unfortunately, we didn't implement better solution for this. We're working on solving this problem. For now, you can always put your style in global stylesheet. It won't be overwritten by our releases. Best Regards, Damian

Start your code here
<div class="row">
    <div class="col-md-6">
        <mdb-select [options]="optionsSelect" placeholder="Choose your option"></mdb-select>
        <label>Example label</label>
optionsSelect: Array<any>;         
    ngOnInit() { 
        this.optionsSelect = [
            { value: '1', label: 'Option 1' },
            { value: '2', label: 'Option 2' },
            { value: '3', label: 'Option 3' },

Any field you add below the mdb-select, you will see the animation choppiness.
