Topic: mdb-select in container with overflow

Pandic_AT free asked 4 years ago

Hello, if I use mdb-select in modal-body with overflow (adding .modal-dialog-scrollable to modal-dialog), then select options are not drawing correctly over a modal-body, but they are cut off because of overflow and I cant see all select options. This happens in every container with overflow, not only in modals. Mdb-select works only if I remove overflow, but this fix is not possible, because I need scrollable content when it doesn't fit the screen. Do you have any ideas how to solve this? Thanks enter image description here

Add [appendToBody]="true" input. Select dropdown will be moved from the original container to the end of the page body, but will be still positioned relative to its input. It should resolve your problem.

<mdb-select [appendToBody]="true"></mdb-select>

It works, thank you. I only must change the z-index of select-options from 1000 to 1050, because the default modal's z-index is 1050 and select-options was under modal.
