Customize Drop-Down Button

Use the dropDownButtonTemplate to customize the drop-down button.

This demo illustrates three customization cases:

  • Custom image
    Declare an img element in the template.

  • Load indicator
    Declare the load indicator and a regular icon in the template. Display the load indicator while hiding the icon, and vice versa.

  • Icon that depends on the selected value
    Declare the default and the selected item's icon in the template. If there is a selected item, display its icon; otherwise, show the default icon.
