Select outline in modal crosses label

Topic: Select outline in modal crosses label

pavelpossiblep asked a year ago

*_Expected behavior_*Select looks normally when placed inside a modal.

*_Actual behavior_*Select outline strikes through the label of select. I tried specifying data-mdb-container but to no avail.

<div class="modal fade" id="acceptModal" tabindex="-1" aria-labelledby="acceptModalLabel" aria-hidden="true">
    <div class="modal-dialog modal-dialog-centered">
        <div class="modal-content">
            <div class="modal-header">
                <h5 class="modal-title" id="acceptModalLabel">Распределить пользователя</h5>
            <form method="post" action="...">
                <div class="modal-body">
                    <select class="select-input" id="..." name="..." required>
                        <option disabled>Выберите...</option>
                    <label class="form-label select-label">
                        <span>Группа</span><span style="color: #8b0000;"> *</span>
                <div class="modal-footer">
                    <button type="button" class="btn btn-outline-..." data-mdb-dismiss="modal">
                    <button type="submit" class="btn btn-...">Распределить</button>

    function getDefaultSelectProps() {
        return {
            noResultText: 'Ничего не найдено./Nothing found.',
            searchPlaceholder: 'Искать/Search...',
            optionsSelectedLabel: 'Выбрано/selected',
            selectAllLabel: 'Выбрать все/Select all',
            visibleOptions: 7,
            optionHeight: 44

    $( document ).ready( function () {
        const selects = document.querySelectorAll('.select-input');
        selects.forEach( element => {
            let props = getDefaultSelectProps();
            if ( element.getAttribute( "data-mdb-filter" ) === true || element.getAttribute( "data-mdb-filter" ) === 'true' ) {
                props.filter = true;
           const simpleSelect = new mdb.Select( element, props);
            if ( != null ) {
                element.addEventListener('', (e) => {
                    //some custom logic on option select
        } )

I figured it out! Basically, I was also using the updating label width script from "input fields" docs section in case user goes back to form, otherwise input labels sort of end up on top of the browser's auto-filled values. It turns out this affected the selects in the modals in the way I described.

Solution: don't update fields by 'form-outline' class, create some custom custom class like 'my-updatable-label' and put it on the inputs that are not selects.

Could you please reproduce your code in a snippet? I tried and it worked for me:

I added my code to the question, the trick is that I initialize all selects manually by my own CSS class "select-input", I also included this code in a sample in the original question.
