    I’m trying to position an instance of jqxDockPanel
    by placing jqxDockPanel inside a parent div container and then using this css

    { position: relative; top: 100px; left: 0px; } /* contains “jqxDockPanel” */

    { position: absolute; top: 100px; left: 50px; }

    However the jqxDockPanel is invisible and only renders in browser when I disable this css.

    Does this css conflict with jqxDockPanel? In particular position: absolute?

    The CSS does not conflict with the jqxDockPanel. However, make sure to set “width” and “height” properties of jqxDockPanel.

    <script type="text/javascript">
    $(document).ready(function () {
    $("#jqxDockPanel").css('position', 'absolute');
    $("#jqxDockPanel").css('left', '100px');
    $("#jqxDockPanel").css('top', '50px');
    $("#jqxDockPanel").jqxDockPanel({ width: 300, height: 210});
    <body class='default'>
    <div id='jqxWidget' style="width: 300px; height: 600px; font-size: 13px; font-family: Verdana;">
    <div id='jqxDockPanel'>
    <div id='first' dock='left' style='background: #486974;'>
    First Div</div>
    <div id='second' dock='top' style='height: 100px; background: #368ba7;'>
    Second Div</div>
    <div id='third' dock='right' style='background: #df7169;'>
    Third Div</div>
    <div id='fourth' style='background: #a73654;'>
    Fourth Div</div>
