Styling (css) my Webmap

Question asked by antonantonenko on Aug 14, 2017

Hey Esri,


I'm finalizing my project right now and decided to add some styling (css) to it before I ship it. I'm looking to have the screen split in two, one side is the webmap and on the other side a drop down menu with the submit button (I dont think it should be to complicated).


The only issue is, every time I give a z-index or put any float property to the drop down menu, the map blacks out.


(as you can see the drop down menu moved up.

 in this example i also gave the webmap the following styling:


  #map_div {
    position: absolute;
    padding: 0;
    margin: 0;
    height: 100%;
    max-width: 50%;
    z-index: -1;

 I don't know if I'm doing something wrong or Esri did it on purpose.


Please let me know if you have any leads on the issue, i'll appreciate any help. 


Thank you,
