Topic: Floating label on readonly input field

vishwasb priority asked 5 months ago


In readonly input fields, the border appears over the labels.

enter image description here

I managed to solve this problem by adding the class "form-control--email" to the input field.

<div class="form-outline mb-4 col-12 col-xl-6 form-outline--height d-flex" data-mdb-input-init>
  <input
      class="form-control bg-white text-dark form-control--email"
      id="formControlReadonly"
      type="email"
      value="<%= current_user.email%>"
      aria-label="readonly input example"
      readonly
  />
  <label class="form-label" for="formControlReadonly">Your current Email-ID</label>
</div>

And in scss

.form-outline{
    &--height{
        height: 46px;
     }
    .form-control{
        &--email  ~ .form-notch .form-notch-middle{
          min-width: 140px;
          border-top: 1px solid transparent;
        }
    }
}

enter image description here

Is this solution acceptable, and is there a simpler way to solve this?

I did something similar, and to increase the height of the input field, I added the class "form-outline--height". Is there any other way to increase the field's height?

Unfortunately, I am unable to reproduce this issue. Can you create a snippet in which it will appear?

When used within another component, such as within an accordion component, it does not initialize properly. The code is below.

If you are not using es modules this part is not needed:

 mdb.initMDB({ Input: mdb.Input });

Input needs to either be initiated when visible to have proper styling, or updated after shown. Example here: https://mdbootstrap.com/snippets/standard/kpienkowska/5979900

The solution worked for me. my scenario is that i clone a group of inputs with a javascript function and the last input is pre-filled and when cloning with js the outline input with a pre-filled value doesn't work well because the outline doesn't fit as it should. So I took the code provided in the link above and put it at the end of my js clone function to trigger the form-outline update. document.querySelectorAll('.form-outline').forEach((formOutline) => { new mdb.Input(formOutline).update(); });

<div class="accordion" id="accordionExample">
    <div class="accordion-item">
      <h2 class="accordion-header" id="headingOne">
        <button
            data-mdb-collapse-init

            data-mdb-toggle="collapse"
            data-mdb-target="#collapseOne"
            aria-expanded="true"
            aria-controls="collapseOne"
            >

        <div class="accordion-body">
            <strong>This is the first item's accordion body.</strong> It is hidden by default,
            until the collapse plugin adds the appropriate classes that we use to style each
            element. These classes control the overall appearance, as well as the showing and
            hiding via CSS transitions. You can modify any of this with custom CSS or
            overriding our default variables. It's also worth noting that just about any HTML
            can go within the <strong>.accordion-body</strong>, though the transition does
            limit overflow.
