Icons

DropdownButton can have an icon to provide the visual representation of the action. To place the icon on a DropdownButton, set the iconCss property to e-icons with the required icon CSS. By default, the icon is positioned to the left side of the DropdownButton. You can customize the icon’s position using the iconPosition property.

In the following example, the DropdownButton with default iconPosition and iconPosition as Top is showcased:

In this following example, e-image class is added with background url of the sprite image along with X and Y positions. The width and height of the element set as 32px.
