Stacking Dropdowns Overlap

Dropdowns with the same class which are placed directly above or below each other will have z-index issues, which I cannot override from the designer, as they have the same class.

Hi @samliew, could you help to share the browser/os ? Thanks in advance.

Hi everyone,

I created dropdown(s) and assigned to different div rows. However, when I open the dropdown, the below dropdown would “stack” on top of the first dropdown list.

I have tried adjust with z-index on the dropdown list and dropdown button, but it’s not working. Adjust the z-index on div rows may not seem ideal since I would have bunch of items in the list. Any ways to tackle this issue?

Hi @VivianY, could you help to share the read-only link to your site and page? It would help if I could take a look at your structure in detail:

Thanks in advance!

Just create a page with dropdowns. Dropdown items appear behind the next dropdown.

Hi @samliew, I appreciate your help with this and creating the sandbox site, as soon as I have more info, I will update.

complementing the discussion. Here is the same error.

Dropdown menu is always above the other, no point changing any z-Indez he continues so.

any update on this? months later, and this still seems to be a critical problem. is there some kind of hack fix in the meantime?

I’ve also encountered this problem many many times. Sometimes I just add different subclasses to stacked dropdowns, the first one being the highest in z-index, and the second dropdown 1 z-index level lower, etc… This works, but is a mess.

There Should be a fix available soon hopefully where the OPEN dropdown automatically is above all closed dropdowns.

I’ll Add my name to the list of customers interested in a solution to this problem. Seems like it’s being neglected as a fringe issue, or one they have no interest in touching given the silence on the topic here.

Hi @samliew Thanks for your patience everyone.

I have asked our developers for an update and they are looking into it right now.

I will respond here when I have an answer.

​Thanks in advance!

Hi @samliew and all, we just pushed a fix for the dropdown overlay issue.

Please reload the designer and re-publish your sites.

Thank you for your patience. As we were fixing this issue, we discovered and fixed a couple smaller quirks related to the open/close state of dropdowns in the designer.
