I know, such a configuration does not make sense, but it's only for testing:

'last_name' => array(
    'exclude' => 1,
    'label' => 'LLL:EXT:sftca/Resources/Private/Language/locallang_db.xlf:tx_sftca_domain_model_woman.last_name',
    'config' => array(
        'type' => 'input',
        'size' => 30,
        'eval' => 'trim',
        'wizards' => array(
            'select' => array(
                'type' => 'select',
                'mode' => 'append',
                'items' => array(
                    array('Yes', 1),
                    array('No', 0)
            'colorpicker' => array(
                'type' => 'popup',
                'module' => array(
                    'name' => 'wizard_colorpicker',
                'dim' => '50x20',
                'tableStyle' => 'border:solid 1px black;',
                'exampleImg' => 'gfx/wizard_colorpickerex.jpg'

The "select" wizard wraps below the colorpicker instead of behind.
Further the colorpicker is not visible as "Color picker". It's more a checkbox. And it was opened in a new tab instead of a little popup as like DatePicker.
After selecting a color, the "checkbox" does not appear in selected color.

Hello Wouter,

I have just checked out the latest master. Clear Cache. Update with composer.

For now, nothing has changed. Sorry.
Do you have tried my code example?

See you tomorrow

does the problem still exists within newer versions of TYPO3 CMS (6.2.17 or 7.6.2)?


Updated by Stefan Froemken over 5 years ago

The problem is still there.

After choosing a color from popup, the color field will be filled with the hex representation, but you don't "see" the choosen color.

What do you think about a dialog window instead of a popup?

The positioning of wizard icons in 7.6.11 still seems broken in different ways.

While buttons are not aligned correctly, additionally they are positioned too far away from the fields they belong to, especially on large screens.
This is due to display:table combined with width:100% which fully uses the available width even when the content of the table is much smaller.

on master, the wizard system was recently changed an now allows better positioning of stuff.

in 7.6, especially the mispositioned suggest wizard in group can be fixed by setting a _position=vertical for the wizards.

that should be ok for now, i'll close the issue.
