Topic: mdb-select-2 with prefix icon

alex737876 premium asked 3 years ago

*_Expected behavior_*If i add icon exact same way as others to mdb-select-2, it should show the prefix icon correctly before the control.

*_Actual behavior_*With mdb-select-2 control, the prefix icon is inside mdb-select-2.

*_Resources (screenshots, code snippets etc.)_*Got icon prefix from:

Works for all other inputs except mdb-select-2:

    <div class="md-form md-outline">
       <mdb-icon fas icon="phone-alt" class="prefix"></mdb-icon>
       <mdb-select-2 [outline]="true" label="Example label" formControlName="select2" >
           <mdb-select-option *ngFor="let option of options" [value]="option.value">{{ option.label }}</mdb-select-option>

Thank you for reporting this problem, we will take a closer look at that. As a workaround for now, please try to add these rules to the global styles in styles.scss file: .prefix ~ mdb-select-2 {
  margin-left: 2rem;
  width: calc(100% - 2rem);
} .prefix ~ mdb-select-2 .mdb-select-label {
  margin-left: 2rem;

Thank you very much!

@Arkadiusz Idzikowski one thing left, small issue with padding/margin i guess: Applying the fix style makes the icon vertically stick to the top. Icons of other inputs (which do not need the fix) are centered. Can you help me on this?

Arkadiusz Idzikowski staff commented 3 years ago

@alex737876 I double-checked that and it looks like the icon with the fixed styles has the same top: 0.25rem style as other icons and it is positioned in the center. Do you use the code that you added to the first post?

@Arkadiusz Idzikowski You are awesome. Double-checked it and found i was using "" instead of . Now it works, thanks
