cd my-app

Installing Syncfusion DropDownButton package

To install DropDownButton package, use the following command.

npm install @syncfusion/ej2-angular-splitbuttons --save

The above package installs DropDownButton dependencies which are required to render the component in the Angular environment.

Adding DropDownButton module

Import DropDownButton module into Angular application(app.module.ts) from the package @syncfusion/ej2-angular-splitbuttons.

import { NgModule }      from '@angular/core';
import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';

// Imported Syncfusion dropdown button module from splitbuttons package.
import { DropDownButtonModule } from '@syncfusion/ej2-angular-splitbuttons';
import { AppComponent }  from './app.component';

@NgModule({
 imports:      [ BrowserModule, DropDownButtonModule ], // Registering EJ2 Dropdownbutton Module.
 declarations: [ AppComponent ],
 bootstrap:    [ AppComponent ]
})
export class AppModule { }

Adding Syncfusion DropDownButton component

Modify the template in app.component.ts file to render the DropDownButton component.

import { Component } from '@angular/core';
import { ItemModel, MenuEventArgs } from '@syncfusion/ej2-angular-splitbuttons';

@Component({
    selector: 'app-root',
    template: `<!-- To render DropDownButton. -->
               <button ejs-dropdownbutton [items]='items' content='Clipboard'></button>`
})

export class AppComponent {
   // Initialize action items.
   public items: ItemModel[] = [
        {
            text: 'Cut'
        },
        {
            text: 'Copy'
        },
        {
            text: 'Paste'
        }];

}

Adding CSS reference

Add DropDownButton component’s styles as given below in style.css.

@import "../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-base/styles/material.css";
@import "../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-buttons/styles/material.css";
@import "../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-popups/styles/material.css";
@import "../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-splitbuttons/styles/material.css";

Running the application

Run the application in the browser using the following command:

ng serve

The following example shows a basic Button component.

@Component({

    template: `<!-- To render DropDownButton. -->
               <button ejs-dropdownbutton [items]='items' content='Clipboard'></button>`
})

export class AppComponent {
   // Initialize action items.
   public items: ItemModel[] = [
        {
            text: 'Cut'
        },
        {
            text: 'Copy'
        },
        {
            text: 'Paste'
        }];

}
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { DropDownButtonModule } from '@syncfusion/ej2-angular-splitbuttons';
import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
import { enableRipple } from '@syncfusion/ej2-base';

enableRipple(true);

/**
 * Module
 */
@NgModule({
    imports: [
        BrowserModule,
        DropDownButtonModule
    ],
    declarations: [AppComponent],
    bootstrap: [AppComponent]
})
export class AppModule { }
import { platformBrowserDynamic } from '@angular/platform-browser-dynamic';
import { enableProdMode } from '@angular/core';
import { AppModule } from './app.module';

enableProdMode();
platformBrowserDynamic().bootstrapModule(AppModule);
