Hi Tr12,
1. If you want the dropdownlist’s dropDown to be not hosted by its container, use the dropDownAppendTo property and set it to ‘body’. That way,its bounds would not be restricted by the container’s size. See the property here: https://www.htmlelements.com/docs/dropdownlist-api/#toc-dropdownappendto_any
2. In Javascript Events Bubble. As the dropDownList also has a ‘close’ event it bubbles up to the document. This behavior is correct.
