Topic: Datatable z-index dropdown issue

stefangregg priority asked 1 year ago

Hia,I have a dynamic datatable with a dropdown in the last column.

However, the dropdown is underneath the pagination section:enter image description here

This tends to happen when only a few items are in the table.

How can I get this dropdown to be over the datatable pagination since it cuts off access to the other dropdown options?

Please see this snippet:

Adding "z-index: 9999 !important;" to any of the dropdown elements doesn't work!

I have also tried to specify the overflow css variable. but that doesn't work either.

I using the normal dropdown initialization:

<a id="dropdownMenuLink" data-mdb-toggle="dropdown" aria-expanded="false">Options</a>
<ul class="dropdown-menu" aria-labelledby="dropdownMenuLink">
  <li><a class="dropdown-item">Option 1</a></li>
  <li><a class="dropdown-item">Option 2</a></li>
  <li><a class="dropdown-item">Option 3</a></li>
  <li><a class="dropdown-item">Option 4</a></li>

It looks like the overflow style must be set for .datatable-inner instead of td and th.

Check my snippet:

I've tested it for a table with one row and with multiple rows, and it looks like it finally works. In this case, z-index doesn't need to be changed to achieve the result.
