Repeaters provide a convenient and flexible way to display repeating content on a page. A Repeater always makes space for itself, so that elements that appear under the Repeater are moved down when the Repeater is expanded, and moved up when the Repeater is collapsed.
Here is an example of a page that has a Repeater (that is currently hidden) under the text input.
This is what happens when the Repeater is expanded.
As you can see, the Repeater just rudely shoves the other stuff out of the way.
What if you want the Repeater to display “over” elements instead of moving them? For this, we can use a “plain” Container Box.
Add the Container Box to the page.
Make the Box transparent by setting the background opacity to 0%.
Drag the Repeater into the Box, and attach it to the Box.
Now when the site is run, instead of moving stuff on the page, the Repeater appears over whatever is in the way.
Is it more polite to shove stuff out of the way, or to just stomp all over it? No matter. We now have a way to display a Repeater without moving things around.
