hello, thank you very much for your response and your responsiveness. the problem is solved. you just had to add the [appendToBody] = "true" parameter to the mdb-auto-complete. I add the code here for any useful purpose:

<form class="form-inline waves-light mr-3" [formGroup]="searchUserForm" mdbWavesEffect>
        <div class="md-form my-0 white-text">
            <mdb-icon fas icon="search mr-1" aria-hidden="true"></mdb-icon>
              class="completer-input form-control mdb-autocomplete mb-0"
              placeholder="Search user..."
            <mdb-auto-completer #auto="mdbAutoCompleter" textNoResults="No results found!!!" [appendToBody]="true">
              <mdb-option *ngFor="let option of results | async" [value]="getOption(option)" (click)="onClickOptionSearch(option)">
                <div class="d-flex flex-column">
                  <strong>Name : {{option.title}} {{option.lastName}} {{option.firstName}}</strong>
                  <small>ID: {{ }}</small>

Template Typescript :

ngOnInit() {
this.searchUserForm = new FormGroup({
  userAutocomplete : new FormControl()
    .subscribe((searchText) => {
      this.results = this.userService.getSearchUser(searchText)
