Topic: Date Picker inside mdBTable and Stepper -> Style Issue

Kroes free asked 3 years ago

We are using an mdbTable inside mdbStepper. Inside the table there are some editable input fields. One of them is an Date Picker that is opend inline.

With the DatePicker everything works as expected when there are enough rows down the opened inline Date Picker. But when I open one of the DatePicker at the bottom of the table then it is only shown until the end of the stepper element height.

Can you help me?

P.s. sorry for my bad english ;)enter image description here

EDIT: Here is your requested Code


import { Component, OnInit, ElementRef, HostListener, AfterViewInit, ViewChild, ChangeDetectorRef } from '@angular/core';
import { MdbTableDirective, MdbTablePaginationComponent, IMyOptions } from 'ng-uikit-pro-standard';

  selector: 'app-snippet',
  templateUrl: './snippet.component.html',
  styleUrls: ['./snippet.component.scss']
export class SnippetComponent implements OnInit, AfterViewInit {

  @ViewChild(MdbTableDirective, { static: true }) mdbTable: MdbTableDirective;
  @ViewChild(MdbTablePaginationComponent, { static: true }) mdbTablePagination: MdbTablePaginationComponent;
  @ViewChild('row', { static: true }) row: ElementRef;

  elements: any = [];
  headElements = ['id', 'first', 'last', 'handle', 'date'];

  searchText: string = '';
  previous: string;

  maxVisibleItems: number = 8;

  public myDatePickerOptions: IMyOptions = {
    // Your options

  constructor(private cdRef: ChangeDetectorRef) { }

  @HostListener('input') oninput() {
    this.mdbTablePagination.searchText = this.searchText;

  ngOnInit() {
    for (let i = 1; i <= 25; i++) {
      this.elements.push({id: i.toString(), first: 'Wpis ' + i, last: 'Last ' + i, handle: 'Handle ' + i});

    this.elements = this.mdbTable.getDataSource();
    this.previous = this.mdbTable.getDataSource();

  ngAfterViewInit() {


  onSubmit() {
    // do something here

Can you update your first post and add an example code on which we will be able to reproduce those problems?

Kroes free commented 3 years ago

I want to create a new snippet but I can´t switch to Pro - why?

Arkadiusz Idzikowski staff commented 3 years ago

Angular Pro snippets are currently not available.

Kroes free commented 3 years ago

Ok, I have added an example code in my first post

Arkadiusz Idzikowski staff commented 3 years ago

Thank you for the code, we will take a closer look at that and let you know what we found.

Kroes free commented 3 years ago

First: Happy new year.

Do you have any news for me?

Arkadiusz Idzikowski staff answered 3 years ago

In this case, the component lacks a mechanism that would allow for dynamic detection of dropdown position and its update. This is something that we would need to change on our end, but it will be very time-consuming.

Until it is fixed, please try to modify the styles of the last component by adding theses styles to the styles.scss file (add .custom-class to the last mdb-date-picker):

.custom-picker {
  position: relative;

.custom-picker .datepicker-inline {
  top: -410px;

Please insert min. 20 characters.
