Issue

When using the Javascript API to embed a workbook in a web-page, filter drop-down menus might open up rather than down.

Environment

  • Tableau Server
  • Tableau Online
  • Tableau Public

Resolution

Drop-down menu behavior cannot be modified using Javascript API. In general, this behavior can be resolved by avoiding height restrictions on the visualization.

Cause

Drop-down menus are rendered by the browser and cannot be controlled using CSS or JavaScript.
