Hi all, I am using AutoCompleteField for 3 fields in a getCMSFields_forPopup and when you visit that popup, the autocompletefields are all jumbled up on top of each other. You cannot read the labels and when you type in the AutoCompleteField you do not see the autocomplete work, thought I can tell it is working. I think this may be CSS issues but not sure.
One other issue is that when you leave the AutoCompleteField it erases what you typed into that field.

Can someone help on this?

I have been trying to get this to work to, but without success.

However, I do think I may have a solution of sorts for your layout issue.

The Autocompletefield loads this css file.


I put this line in my form.css and the overlay issue was solved.

.autocomplete_input{height:auto !important;}

A bit crude but it worked.

Hope this helps.

Update: I think this fix does not apply to this module. If I am not mistaken this was done to a site that did not have UncleCheeses fantastic DataObjectManager installed.
