I've managed to add a second action to the actions column in the admin product listing. It works fine until I add another column to the display. The dropdown menu doesn't "follow" the actions column and stays on the right : enter image description here

Is there any way to fix this ? I'm running Magento 2.3.3


Here's my code


<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:ObjectManager/etc/config.xsd">
  <!-- Plugin that adds an action to the default admin panel product listing -->
  <type name="Magento\Catalog\Ui\Component\Listing\Columns\ProductActions">
    <plugin name="pluginname" type="Vendor\Module\Plugins\AddStatsActionToProductListing" sortOrder="1" disabled="false" />

Plugin Class

public function afterPrepareDataSource(\Magento\Catalog\Ui\Component\Listing\Columns\ProductActions $subject, $result)

    foreach ($result['data']['items'] as &$item) {
        $item[$subject->getData('name')]['stats'] = [
            'href' => $this->_urlBuilder->getUrl(
                ['product_id' => $item['entity_id']]
            'label' => __('Stats'),
            'hidden' => false,
            '__disableTmpl' => true

    return $result;
  • Could you update the code? – Jimmy Apr 15 at 1:25
  • @Jimmy Thanks for asking, I uploaded my code – Gautier Bardon Apr 15 at 7:31

I checked the code, the Action column seems be meant to be the last column.

The reason you have this is because the list actions, <ul> tag is positioned absolute, whereas the closest relative element is .admin__data-grid-outer-wrap, so the ul's position will be aligned with that relative element.

No matter what the last column is, the ul will always be there, at that specific position

  • Oh I see it makes sense. It's kinda weird that magento makes it possible to add columns to the right of the action's column. I guess the solution would be to have a custom column that replaces the action one, with the same layout ? I believe that's possible. – Gautier Bardon Apr 15 at 9:03
  • you could add as many columns as you want, just position them before Action column to make it displays correctly. – Jimmy Apr 15 at 9:05
