    URL Finder widget: How to overlay result content.

    Asked by haggai on March 06, 2016 at 06:21 AM

    I'm using a few fields with the URL Finder widget in my form, and whenever it displays suggestions, the element resizes, pushing down the following fields. This form behaviour is rather "jumpy". For a smoother experience, I wanted to have the suggestions (which are anyway a temporary element) overlay the rest of the form below the field, like a more typical dropdown. I assume this is possible by adding CSS. I tried some e.g. position: absolute tweaks to the CSS but could not quite get it to work.

    How do I do this?

    I will forward this to our second level to get further help, it should work with:


    position: absolute;

    z-index: 1;


    But it isn't, maybe I am missing something. You will be notified via this thread when this gets fixed.
