ISSUE-138: absolute positioning of children of flexbox

absolute positioning of children of flexbox

State:
CLOSED
Product:
CSS3 Flexbox
Raised by:
Alex Mogilevsky
Opened on:
2010-08-23
Description:
Issue:
When children of a flexbox are absolute positioned, how is the "auto" position calculated?
Proposal:
Absolute or fixed positioned children of flexbox are wrapped into anonymous text block, with adjacent inline content as appropriate. Determination of positioning parent and the hypothetical static position follows CSS2.1 rules with no additional logic. Flex values on positioned children of flexbox are ignored.

Related notes:

Resolved @FTF: absolute positione elements are wrapped into anonymous blocks as normal inline content, similar to the same case in tables.
