Use this code snippet to any part of your project.

<div class="sgds-dropdown">
    <div class="sgds-dropdown-trigger">
        <button class="sgds-button" aria-haspopup="true" aria-controls="sgds-dropdown-menu">
            <span>Click me</span>
            <span class="icon">
                <span class="sgds-icon sgds-icon-chevron-down"></span>
    <div class="sgds-dropdown-menu" id="sgds-dropdown-menu" role="menu">
        <div class="sgds-dropdown-content">
            <a href="#" class="sgds-dropdown-item">Dropdown item</a>
            <a class="sgds-dropdown-item">Other dropdown item</a>
            <a href="#" class="sgds-dropdown-item is-active">Active dropdown item</a>
            <a href="#" class="sgds-dropdown-item">Other dropdown item</a>
            <hr class="sgds-dropdown-divider">
            <a href="#" class="sgds-dropdown-item">With a divider</a>

  • Contain actions that are related to each other
