I am having this problem with split button where I put a template in the popup that contains DropDownComponent (basically any component that has its own popup) and when I select something in dropdown the split button popup gets closed as well.

I prepared an example to showcase my problem: https://stackblitz.com/edit/angular-146139-sample-modified-vk282w?file=app.component.html

To recreate:
1.) click on the button to open popup.
2.) select an item from dropdown list
3.) both popups get closed (problem)

I need a work-around or help with implementation so that only the child element popup will close first and then if i focus out of the split button only then the main popup closes.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Marko, 
Thank you for the patience. 
We have checked your reported scenario and it can be achieved using workaround solution in the beforeClose event as like in the below code example, 
Code Example 
public beforeClose(args: any): void { 
    if(closest(args.event.target, '.e-ddl')){ 
        args.cancel = true; 
For your convenience, we have prepared a sample. Please check the sample in below link, 
Could you please check the above sample and get back to us if you need any further assistance on this?
