Tailwind CSS Dropdown - Flowbite

Get started with the dropdown component to show a list of menu items when clicking on the trigger element based on multiple layouts, styles, and placements

The dropdown component can be used to show a list of menu items when clicking on an element such as a button and hiding it when focusing outside of the triggering element.

Make sure to include Flowbite’s JavaScript file inside your project to enable dropdowns.

Dropdown example #

If you want to show a dropdown menu when clicking on an element make sure that you add the data-dropdown-toggle="dropdownId" data attribute to the element (ie. a button) that will trigger the dropdown menu.

The dropdownId is the id of the dropdown menu element.

Dropdown navbar #

You can also use the dropdown element inside a navigation bar and add a second level of navigation hierarchy, but make sure to use a button element.

Double placement #

Alternatively you can choose the secondary axis placement by specifying *-start after the primary position has been chosen. For example, you can use the right-start or left-start to position the menu just below the button.

JavaScript behaviour #

The Dropdown class from Flowbite can be used to create an object that will show a dropdown menu relative to the main trigger element (eg. a button) based on the parameters, options, and methods that you provide.

Object parameters #

Initialize a Dropdown object with the object parameters such as the main target dropdown menu, a trigger element (eg. a button) and options to set the placement relative to the trigger element.

Parameter Type Required Description
targetElement Element Required Apply the main dropdown menu element as the first parameter of the Dropdown object.
triggerElement Element Required Apply the trigger element, such as a button, which is required to position the dropdown menu and set a click event.
options Object Optional Use the options parameter to set the positioning of the dropdown menu.

Options #

Use the following options as the third parameter for the Dropdown class to set the placement of the dropdown menu.

Option Type Description
placement String Set the position of the dropdown menu relative to the trigger element choosing from top|right|bottom|left.
onHide Function Set a callback function when the dropdown has been hidden.
onShow Function Set a callback function when the dropdown has been shown.

Methods #

Use the methods from the Dropdown object to programatically show or hide the dropdown menu directly from JavaScript.

Method Description
show() Use this method on the Dropdown object to show the dropdown menu.
hide() Use this method on the Dropdown object to hide the dropdown menu.

Example #

Check out the following JavaScript example to learn how to initialize, set the options, and use the methods for the Dropdown object.

First of all, you need to set the main target element which will be the dropdown menu and the trigger element which will can be a button or a text.

After that, you can also optionally set an options object to set the placement of the dropdown menu and callback functions.

// set the dropdown menu element
const targetEl = document.getElementById('dropdownMenu');

// set the element that trigger the dropdown menu on click
const triggerEl = document.getElementById('dropdownButton');

// options with default values
const options = {
  placement: 'bottom',
  onHide: () => {
      console.log('dropdown has been hidden');
  },
  onShow: () => {
      console.log('dropdown has been shown');
  }
};

Create a new Dropdown object based on the options above.

/*
* targetEl: required
* triggerEl: required
* options: optional
*/
const dropdown = new Dropdown(targetEl, triggerEl, options);

Use the show and hide methods on the Dropdown object to programaticaly show or hide the dropdown menu directly from JavaScript.

// show the dropdown menu
dropdown.show();

// hide the dropdown menu
dropdown.hide();
