Topic: Arrow Position in secondary-text Drop Down

Lzk93g premium asked 2 years ago

Expected behavior The down arrow to be aligned with the select drop down.

Actual behavior The down arrow is placed in the top right side of the page.

Resources (screenshots, code snippets etc.) When importing only a single css module in a Bootstrap 5 project, the down arrow does not align with the select element.

<link href="" rel="stylesheet" integrity="sha384-1BmE4kWBq78iYhFldvKuhfTAU6auU8tT94WrHftjDbrCEXSU1oBoqyl2QvZ6jIW3" crossorigin="anonymous">
<link href="css/modules/select.min.css" rel="stylesheet">
<select class="select" data-mdb-option-height="44">
<option value="1" data-mdb-secondary-text="Secondary text">One</option>
<option value="2" data-mdb-secondary-text="Secondary text">Two</option>
<option value="3" data-mdb-secondary-text="Secondary text">Three</option>
<option value="4" data-mdb-secondary-text="Secondary text">Four</option>
<option value="5" data-mdb-secondary-text="Secondary text">Five</option>

<script type="text/javascript" src="js/modules/select.min.js"></script>

enter image description here

Is there a better way to import a single CSS module?

As a work around, we removed .select-arrow from \css\modules\select.min.css and haven't seen any issues in testing.


.select-arrow {
  color: #000;
  text-align: center;
  font-size: 0.8rem;
  position: absolute;
  right: 9px;
  top: 9px;

  &:before {
    content: '\25BC';

You may found these instructions helpful For the select you would probably also need to import input. But our CSS and Bootstrap's will probably be in conflict and this may cause issues. The best solution would be to fully replace Bootstrap with our UI-Kit.

Keep coding,
