Hope someone can help.
New Nintex forms installation on sharepoint 2013
When I click new item or edit an existing item the Nintex form opens to show information correctly however the form is grayed out and the form becomes
unresponsive. Oddly, sometimes the form opens just fine but most of the time it fails as described above,
I have tried deactivating and reactivating the Nintex Forms feature but this did not help
Solved! Go to Solution.
I have more info about this problem.
It is due to the CSS element <div class="msdlgOverlay" with a display:blocked being called when the Nintex dialog opens.
I've sent a support request to Nintex but if anyone else has a quick workaround that would be helpful
I've also experienced this issue when the forms of the list are configured to be modal.
The issue appears randomly and it depends on the browser used (sometimes only in IE, sometimes only in Chrome...).
It is due to CSS and more precisely to the z-index property.
Do you experience the same behaviour ?
Let us know the feedback from Nintex support.
Thanks for taking the time to reply.
My issue is to do with the grey shading that is applied when a pop up window appears i.e. a Nintex form is opened.
Sometimes the Form will remain greyed over.
I "fixed" my issue by using some custom CSS to disable the grey pop up. This fixed all my issues and now opening Nintex Forms works over slow connections and the sharepoint edit button opens the Form in edit mode correctly every time. Nintex engineers are looking at the issue and I will post their answer
Here is what I added to company Style library CSS file ( I know that !important is poor form)
Awesome and thanks for sharing! I was going to suggest adding in some CSS but I wasn't sure what tag you'd have to accommodate. Reason being I saw similar things happen when a custom theme was in place and usually the CSS is the culprit.
We experienced this same issue, but we elected to keep the grey overlay so users cannot use the web content behind the dialog. We put in CSS to force the z-index so that it will not go over the dialog.
z-index: 1500 !important;
Thanks for pointing me in the right direction though.
