Topic: Form label covers form option

Grf free asked 3 years ago

Expected behavior The form code is shown in the next snippet, and showing the behaviour as expected. Snippet in MDBootstrap

Actual behavior If I put the same code in the form on my site, than the first option shows up and covers the label. The following js-code is loaded just before the

  // Material Select Initialization
 $(document).ready(function() {
 $('').bind('focus blur', function () {

Resources (screenshots, code snippets etc.) Image showing the cover of the option over the label

Any thoughts?

try again to write and analyze the line that is responsible for the dropdown I also think the text is in the wrong place and create a snippet showing only this form here:

Hi Adam,

Thanks for getting back to me! I added the code to a snippet, however it seems to work in the snippet-version, similar to the snippet in my OP. Please have a look a this page to see what I mean Contact form Maybe we can take it from there.

Best, Grf

please, create a snippet showing your problem here: I'll try to help you. When I paste your code that you sent above to the editor, everything works so in the new snippet, enter all the code that does not work on your page.
