10 May 20234 minutes to read

Items in popup can be grouped in SplitButton by templating entire popup with ListView. To achieve grouping in ListView, check ListView Grouping documentation. To template ListView in popup, create ListView with id listview and provide it as target for SplitButton.

The following example illustrates how to group items in popup using ListView component.

import { SplitButton } from '@syncfusion/ej2-splitbuttons';
import { ListView } from '@syncfusion/ej2-lists';
import { enableRipple } from '@syncfusion/ej2-base';

enableRipple(true);

let listItems: { [key: string]: Object }[] = [
    {
        'text': 'Cut',
        'category': 'Basic'
    },
    {
        'text': 'Copy',
        'category': 'Basic'
    },
    {
        'text': 'Paste',
        'category': 'Basic'
    },
    {
        'text': 'Paste as Formula',
        'category': 'Advanced'
    },
    {
        'text': 'Paste as Hyperlink',
        'category': 'Advanced'
    },
];

let listView: ListView = new ListView({
    dataSource: listItems,
    sortOrder: 'Descending',
    fields: { groupBy: 'category' }
}, '#listview');

let splitBtn: SplitButton =  new SplitButton({ content: 'ClipBoard', target: listView.element }, '#element');
