Overlay on table cell on hover of first cell

I have create a table listing. When user hover the first cell that is with 3 dots Edit and Delete option are displayed and below that there is a transparent background.

Everything is fine when content is in single line.

Issue is when there is more content. The height of overlay dose not adjust. I have tried

top: 0; bottom: 0; height: 100%
to the
.action
it covers the whole table.



body {
margin: 0
}
.table {
display: table;
width: 100%;
border-bottom: 1px solid #ccc
}
.tHead,
.tRow {
display: table-row;
position: relative;
}
.tCell {
display: table-cell;
padding: 5px;
background: #fff;
border-top: 1px solid #ccc;
}
.tHead .tCell {
background: #ccc;
}
.tRow:hover .tCell {
background: #f4f4f4;
border-color: #000;
}
.tRow:hover + .tRow .tCell {
border-color: #000;
}
.tRow .tCell:first-child {
width: 10px;
cursor: pointer;
opacity: 1
}
.menu {
display: block;
height: 3px;
width: 3px;
background: #ccc;
position: relative;
margin-left: 5px;
top: 3px;
z-index: 2;
}
.menu:before,
.menu:after {
display: block;
height: 3px;
width: 3px;
background: #ccc;
position: absolute;
content: " ";
top: -6px;
}
.menu:before {
top: -12px;
}
.actions {
display: none;
position: absolute;
white-space: nowrap;
z-index: 1;
left: 0;
right: 0;
margin-top: -19px;
background: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.9);
padding: 5px 5px 5px 28px;
}
.tCell:hover .menu:before,
.tCell:hover .menu:after,
.tCell:hover .menu {
background: #000
}
.tCell:hover .actions {
display: block
}

Answer

Hope this helps you.

Use :before for the overlay on the cell and target the cells using ~ operator. I had same requirement. This is how I handled it.

body {
  margin: 0
}
.table {
  display: table;
  width: 100%;
  border-bottom: 1px solid #ccc
}
.tHead,
.tRow {
  display: table-row;
  position: relative;
}
.tCell {
  display: table-cell;
  padding: 5px;
  background: #fff;
  border-top: 1px solid #ccc;
  position: relative
}
.tHead .tCell {
  background: #ccc;
}
.tRow:hover .tCell {
  background: #f4f4f4;
  border-color: #000;
}
.tRow .tCell:before {
  content: "";
  position: absolute;
  height: 100%;
  width: 100%;
  background: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.9);
  top: 0;
  left: 0;
  display: none;
}
.tRow:hover + .tRow .tCell {
  border-color: #000;
}
.tRow .tCell:first-child {
  width: 10px;
  cursor: pointer;
  opacity: 1
}
.menu {
  display: block;
  height: 3px;
  width: 3px;
  background: #ccc;
  position: relative;
  margin-left: 5px;
  top: 3px;
  z-index: 3;
}
.menu:before,
.menu:after {
  display: block;
  height: 3px;
  width: 3px;
  background: #ccc;
  position: absolute;
  content: " ";
  top: -6px;
}
.menu:before {
  top: -12px;
}
.actions {
  display: none;
  position: absolute;
  white-space: nowrap;
  z-index: 4;
  left: 0;
  right: 0;
  margin-top: -19px;
  padding: 5px 5px 5px 28px;
}
.tCell:hover .menu:before,
.tCell:hover .menu:after,
.tCell:hover .menu {
