[FIXED] Primeng Table Responsive layout stack/scroll not working


I am using PrimeNG in my Angular project. I am trying to make the table elements show in "stack" mode when responsive, which should be a simple thing according to the documentation.

Yet it does not work in my code, the rows don’t get stacked for small screen sizes:

Here is my component.html:

<div class="card">
  <p-table responsiveLayout="stack" [value]="questions">
    <ng-template pTemplate="caption">
      <h5 class="p-m-0">Trial Table</h5>

    <ng-template pTemplate="header" let-columns>
        <th pSortableColumn="main">Question <p-sortIcon field="main"></p-sortIcon></th>
        <th pSortableColumn="content">Content <p-sortIcon field="content"></p-sortIcon></th>
        <th pSortableColumn="timeToRead">Time To Read <p-sortIcon field="timeToRead"></p-sortIcon></th>
        <th pSortableColumn="timeToRecord">Time To Record <p-sortIcon field="timeToRecord"></p-sortIcon></th>

    <ng-template pTemplate="body" let-question let-columns="columns">
        <td><span class="p-column-title">Question</span>{{question.main}}</td>
        <td><span class="p-column-title">Content</span>{{question.content}}</td>
        <td><span class="p-column-title">Time To Read</span>{{question.timeToRead}}</td>
        <td><span class="p-column-title">Time To Record</span>{{question.timeToRecord}}</td>

Here is a light version of my component.ts:

import { Component } from '@angular/core';

  selector: 'app-questions',
  templateUrl: './questions.component.html',
export class QuestionsComponent {
  questions = [{ main: 'valueA', content: 'valueB', timeToRead: 'valueC', timeToRecord: 'valueD' }];

There is a property responsive which you can bind to.
If you add [responsive]="true" to your p-table component, it should work correctly.
