As above I've got an issue where the field / attribute name label floats to the bottom of the field rather than the top when I use float: left within the css of the component.
Any idea what the cause is or even better how to fix it - as I've spent 3 hours trying to fix it so far without any success.
Hi @ben-thompson ,
Please try to raise a support ticket.
how does your HTML & CSS look like. Do you need the float only inside of your component or to align it in relation to the whole MDA?
I usually scope my CSS with a wrapping div that has a special CSS class. Then the CSS only effects my component.
The float:left is within a css class of a span nested within 2 other div's.
There is a second (toolbox) div, that sits next to the span, that also has a float:left within it's styling that only appears when the field is in focus.
So yes there are wrapping divs around the control where additional styling could be added if I could work out how to fix it and adding more div elements wouldn't be a problem.
The issue is that I do need to use float:left as without that attribute, the height attribute within the span is overridden and that causes a different set of issues.
It wouldn't be so bad but I've been playing with CSS for over 20 years and it's still (as in this example) an annoying pain at times.
Yeah, CSS is annoying some times.
So you need the float:left even when the second tag is not present?
Could you maybe apply a "fixing" CSS to the label?
The Template label is outside the PCF control as it's the label on the form for the field and any css I apply to it would be by overriding / enhancing built-in styles that would probably cause issues elsewhere on the page.
To be honest I only mentioned it here as I thought it would be quicker to get it reported and investigated here as the product team reads this rather than by raising a support ticket.
I'm happy to provide the source code if required.
If you could provide source for this control it would be helpful as I am not able to reproduce this label issue on an oob control.
@jolake just sent you a PM with a onedrive link to a solution with the control.
