Dropdowns

Single button dropdowns

Any single .btn can be turned into a dropdown toggle with some markup changes. Here’s how you can put them to work with either <button> elements:

                                                    
                                                        <!-- Default Drodown -->
                                                        <div class="dropdown">
                                                            <button class="btn btn-light dropdown-toggle" type="button" id="dropdownMenuButton" data-bs-toggle="dropdown" aria-haspopup="true" aria-expanded="false">
                                                                Dropdown button
                                                            </button>
                                                            <div class="dropdown-menu" aria-labelledby="dropdownMenuButton">
                                                                <a class="dropdown-item" href="#">Action</a>
                                                                <a class="dropdown-item" href="#">Another action</a>
                                                                <a class="dropdown-item" href="#">Something else here</a>
                                                            </div>
                                                        </div>
                                                        
                                                        <!-- Link with Dropdown -->
                                                        <div class="dropdown">
                                                            <a class="btn btn-secondary dropdown-toggle" href="#" role="button" id="dropdownMenuLink" data-bs-toggle="dropdown" aria-haspopup="true" aria-expanded="false">
                                                                Dropdown link
                                                            </a>
                                                            
                                                            <div class="dropdown-menu" aria-labelledby="dropdownMenuLink">
                                                                <a class="dropdown-item" href="#">Action</a>
                                                                <a class="dropdown-item" href="#">Another action</a>
                                                                <a class="dropdown-item" href="#">Something else here</a>
                                                            </div>
                                                        </div>
                                                    
                                                

Variant

The best part is you can do this with any button variant, too:

                                                    
                                                        <!-- Light -->
                                                        <button type="button" class="btn btn-light dropdown-toggle" data-bs-toggle="dropdown" aria-haspopup="true" aria-expanded="false">Light</button>
                                                        <div class="dropdown-menu">
                                                            <a class="dropdown-item" href="#">Action</a>
                                                        </div>
                                                        
                                                        <!-- Secondary -->
                                                        <button type="button" class="btn btn-secondary dropdown-toggle" data-bs-toggle="dropdown" aria-haspopup="true" aria-expanded="false">Secondary</button>
                                                        <div class="dropdown-menu">
                                                            <a class="dropdown-item" href="#">Action</a>
                                                        </div>
                                                        
                                                        
                                                        <!-- Primary -->
                                                        <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary dropdown-toggle" data-bs-toggle="dropdown" aria-haspopup="true" aria-expanded="false">Primary</button>
                                                        <div class="dropdown-menu">
                                                            <a class="dropdown-item" href="#">Action</a>
                                                        </div>
                                                        
                                                        <!-- Success -->
                                                        <button type="button" class="btn btn-success dropdown-toggle" data-bs-toggle="dropdown" aria-haspopup="true" aria-expanded="false">Success</button>

                                                        <button type="button" class="btn btn-warning dropdown-toggle" data-bs-toggle="dropdown" aria-haspopup="true" aria-expanded="false">Warning</button>

Animated Dropdown

Add .dropdown-menu-animated to a .dropdown-menu to have animated dropdown menu.

                                                    
                                                        <div class="dropdown btn-group">
                                                            <button class="btn btn-light dropdown-toggle" type="button" data-bs-toggle="dropdown" aria-haspopup="true" aria-expanded="false">

                                                            </button>
                                                            <div class="dropdown-menu dropdown-menu-animated">

                                                                <a class="dropdown-item" href="#">Another action</a>
                                                                <a class="dropdown-item" href="#">Something else here</a>

Dropup variation

Trigger dropdown menus above elements by adding .dropup to the parent element.

                                                    
                                                        <!-- Default dropup button -->
                                                        <div class="btn-group dropup">

                                                                Split dropup
                                                            </button>
                                                            <button type="button" class="btn btn-light dropdown-toggle" data-bs-toggle="dropdown" aria-haspopup="true" aria-expanded="false">

Dropend variation

Trigger dropdown menus at the right of the elements by adding .dropend to the parent element.

                                                    
                                                        <!-- Default dropend button -->

Disabled Item

Add .disabled to items in the dropdown to style them as disabled.

                                                    
                                                        <!-- Disabled -->
                                                        <div class="btn-group">
                                                            <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary   dropdown-toggle" data-bs-toggle="dropdown" aria-haspopup="true" aria-expanded="false">

Text

Place any freeform text within a dropdown menu with text and use spacing utilities. Note that you’ll likely need additional sizing styles to constrain the menu width.

                                                    
                                                        <!-- Text Example -->
                                                        <div class="btn-group">
                                                            <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary   dropdown-toggle" data-bs-toggle="dropdown" aria-haspopup="true" aria-expanded="false">
                                                                Text Dropdown
                                                            </button>
                                                            <div class="dropdown-menu p-3 text-muted" style="max-width: 200px;">
                                                                <p>
                                                                    Some example text that's free-flowing within the dropdown menu.
                                                                </p>
                                                                <p class="mb-0">
                                                                    And this is more example text.
                                                                </p>
                                                            </div>
                                                        </div>
                                                    
                                                

Menu alignment

Add .dropdown-menu-end to a .dropdown-menu to right align the dropdown menu.

Split button dropdowns

Similarly, create split button dropdowns with virtually the same markup as single button dropdowns, but with the addition of .dropdown-toggle-split for proper spacing around the dropdown caret.

                                                    
                                                        <div class="btn-group">
                                                            <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary">Primary</button>
                                                            <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary dropdown-toggle dropdown-toggle-split" data-bs-toggle="dropdown" aria-haspopup="true" aria-expanded="false">
                                                                <span class="visually-hidden">Toggle Dropdown</span>
                                                            </button>
                                                            <div class="dropdown-menu">
                                                                <a class="dropdown-item" href="#">Action</a>
                                                                <a class="dropdown-item" href="#">Another action</a>
                                                                <a class="dropdown-item" href="#">Something else here</a>
                                                                <div class="dropdown-divider"></div>
                                                                <a class="dropdown-item" href="#">Separated link</a>
                                                            </div>
                                                        </div><!-- /btn-group -->
                                                    
                                                

Sizing

Button dropdowns work with buttons of all sizes, including default and split dropdown buttons.

                                                    
                                                        <!-- Large button groups (default and split) -->
                                                        <div class="btn-group">
                                                            <button class="btn btn-light btn-lg dropdown-toggle" type="button" data-bs-toggle="dropdown" aria-haspopup="true" aria-expanded="false">
