Documentation

Dropdowns are lightweight, JavaScript-powered context menus for housing navigation and actions. They're great for instances where you don't need the full power (and code) of the select menu.

Basic examples

Dropdowns should be trigged by a <button>. Each dropdown menu requires a directional class, much like our tooltips.

Using a GitHub button:

<div class="dropdown js-menu-container js-select-menu">
  <button class="btn dropdown-toggle js-menu-target" type="button" aria-expanded="false" aria-haspopup="true">
    Dropdown
    <div class="dropdown-caret"></div>
  </button>
 
  <div class="dropdown-menu-content js-menu-content">
    <ul class="dropdown-menu dropdown-menu-se">
      <li><a class="dropdown-item" href="#url">Dropdown item</a></li>
      <li><a class="dropdown-item" href="#url">Dropdown item</a></li>
      <li><a class="dropdown-item" href="#url">Dropdown item</a></li>
    </ul>
  </div>
</div>

Using a button customized with additional utilities:

<div class="dropdown js-menu-container js-select-menu">
  <button class="btn-link no-underline text-gray p-2 dropdown-toggle js-menu-target" type="button" aria-expanded="false" aria-haspopup="true">
    Dropdown
    <div class="dropdown-caret"></div>
  </button>
 
  <div class="dropdown-menu-content js-menu-content">
    <ul class="dropdown-menu dropdown-menu-se">
      <li><a class="dropdown-item" href="#url">Dropdown item</a></li>
      <li><a class="dropdown-item" href="#url">Dropdown item</a></li>
      <li><a class="dropdown-item" href="#url">Dropdown item</a></li>
    </ul>
  </div>
</div>

Options

No overflow

Use dropdown-menu-no-overflow modifier class to set the width of the dropdown to auto and prevent hidden overflows on item contents and text.

<div class="select-all-dropdown dropdown js-menu-container js-bulk-actions float-left js-transitionable">
  <button class="btn btn-sm mr-3 js-menu-target" type="button" aria-expanded="false" aria-haspopup="true">
    1 member selected…
    <span class="dropdown-caret"></span>
  </button>
 
  <div class="dropdown-menu-content js-menu-content">
    <ul class="dropdown-menu dropdown-menu-no-overflow dropdown-menu-se">
      <a href="#url" class="dropdown-item js-menu-close">
        Change role...
      </a>
      <a href="#url" class="dropdown-item menu-item-danger js-menu-close">
        Remove from team
      </a>
    </ul>
  </div>
</div>

Sign out button

Use <button class="dropdown-item dropdown-signout"> to reset button styles and display it as a link.

<div class="dropdown js-menu-container float-right position-relative">
  <button class="btn dropdown-toggle js-menu-target" type="button" aria-expanded="false" aria-haspopup="true">
