Topic: Issue with MDBAutoComplete, MDBDatePicker and MDBTimePicker elements and MDBModal

beenham priority asked 2 years ago

Issue with Popper elements and MDBModal. This affects a couple of Components, I thought it was easier to keep in the one ticket.

Affected components:

  • MDBAutoComplete
  • MDBDatePicker
  • MDBTimePicker

Expected behavior Popper elements to be displayed above the modal

Actual behavior Popper elements are being displayed below the modal

The issue seems to be coming from the inline styles of z-index=1000, where modal is 1060.

  • *DatePicker: Removing inline style fixes issue as .datepicker-dropdown-container has z-index 1066
  • *AutoComplete: Removing inline style brings it above the backdrop, but below the modal itself. .autocomplete-dropdown-container has z-index 1050
  • *Timepicker: I was unable to find / resolve the issue, my guess is it is wrapped in MDBAnimation (only noticeable difference from the other two). class style z-index is 1065

Could you specify which package do you use exactly? MDB5 v. 1.x.x React and MDB4 v. 5.x.x are not the same products. I can see in the specification that you meant the first one but this code is using an MDB4 React one :(

Hi, This issue was found using the latest MDB5 (MDB5 1.4.0) from the git repository. The package is imported like so:

"mdbreact": "git+",
