Topic: .MDB-Select Value List Width

nathan.malone free asked 4 years ago

Desired Behavior In certain scenarios, it would be useful to allow the width of a .mdb-select's value list to be wider than the .mdb-select itself.

Actual Behavior The width of a .mdb-select's value list is restricted to the width of the .mdb-select itself.

Justification & Preferences This would be useful because I often find myself wanting to show detailed items in the value list, but show something abbreviated in the .mdb-select, like in the snippet in the Resources section. I think that it would be great if the framework could calculate the width using a formula like w = min(max(w1, w2), w3) where w is the calculated width of the value list, w1 is the width of the .mdb-select, w2 is the width of the longest item in the value list, and w3 is a reasonable max-width for the value list depending on the screen size.

Resources I do not have an example of what I want to happen, but here is a snippet where being able to make the .mdb-select's value list wider than the .mdb-select would be useful. In the example, the secondary text is often wider than the width of the list.
