Dropdown Button     

QBtnDropdown is a very convenient dropdown button. Goes very well with QList as dropdown content, but it’s by no means limited to it.

Installation

Edit /quasar.conf.js:

framework: {
components: ['QBtnDropdown']
}

Basic usage

Simple dropdown menu

<q-btn-dropdown label="Button">
<!-- dropdown content -->
<q-list link>
<q-item>
<q-item-main>
<q-item-tile label>Item</q-item-tile>
</q-item-main>
</q-item>
</q-list>
</q-btn-dropdown>

Use the split prop to separate target areas for opening dropdown and triggering @click event

<q-btn-dropdown split label="Button" @click="handlerFunction">
<!-- dropdown content -->
<q-list link>
<q-item>
<q-item-main>
<q-item-tile label>Item</q-item-tile>
</q-item-main>
</q-item>
</q-list>
</q-btn-dropdown>
