Dropdown component

Generic and lightweight React dropdown component.

Installation

With yarn

yarn add @rootre/forms-dropdown

or with npm

npm install @rootre/forms-dropdown

Usage

Basic usage:

import React from 'react';
import Dropdown from '@rootre/forms-dropdown';
import '@rootre/forms-dropdown/styles.css';

export default function App() {
    const items = [
        {label: 'Cat'},
        {label: 'Dog'},
        {label: 'Rabbit'},
        {label: 'Parrot'},
    ];

    return (
        <div>
            <Dropdown 
                items={items}
                afterChange={item => {
                    console.log('selected item:', item);
                }}
            />
        </div>
    );
}

Your item object can be anything, only mandatory field is label key that is shown in component HTML.

Usage with controllers:

You can pass react useState instances to control dropdown's behavior:

import React, {useState} from 'react';
import Dropdown from '@rootre/forms-dropdown';
import '@rootre/forms-dropdown/styles.css';

export default function App() {
    const items = [
        {label: 'Cat'},
        {label: 'Dog'},
        {label: 'Rabbit'},
        {label: 'Parrot'},
    ];

    const activeItemController = useState(items[0]); // bare in mind that controllers override initials
    const openController = useState(false);
    const [, setActiveItem] = activeItemController;
    const [, setOpen] = openController;

    return (
        <div>
            <button onClick={() => setActiveItem(items[2])}>Set Rabbit</button>
            <button onClick={() => setOpen(true)}>Open dropdown</button>
            <Dropdown
                items={items}
                controllers={{
                    active: activeItemController,
                    open: openController,
                }}
            />
        </div>
    );
}

Note

Controllers override initials, so if you want set controller for active item (controllers.active) you set initial active item in useState(initialItem)

Styling

Component classes are bundled via CSS modules and uses local ident name: dropdown_[local]

CSS file:

import '@rootre/forms-dropdown/styles.css';

Importing whole css file get you all basic formatting.

Optionally, if you use overrides: itemTemplate or itemsTemplate you could use defaults from original sass file:

Sass file:

import '@rootre/forms-dropdown/styles.scss';

It gets you following defaults:

.activeItem {} /* selected item */
.content {} /* wrapping div of opened dropdown contents */
.dropdown {} /* the whole dropdown */
.item {} /* item in opened dropdown list */
.list {} /* wrapping div of opened dropdown list */
