How to get started easily with Syncfusion Angular 11 Dropdown Menu?

Platform: Angular - EJ 2 |
Control: DropDownButton

A quick start project that helps you to create an Angular 11 Dropdown Menu with a minimal code configurations.



Before start, we need following items to create Angular Dropdown Menu in Angular 11 application.



The angular 11 Dropdown menu is created from the Syncfusion ej2-angular-splitbuttons package from npmjs, which are distributed in npm as @syncfusion scoped packages.

Creating Angular Project


  1. Install Angular cli 11 using following command.


npm install -g @angular/cli@11.2.3



If you would like to follow and run the application in Angular 9, Angular 8, Angular 7, Angular 6 or Angular 5 or Angular 4, you need to replace the CLI command version number with the corresponding angular version number.


npm install -g @angular/cli@<CLI VERSION>



  1. Create a new Angular 11 project using Angular cli and navigate to that folder.


ng new angular11-app

cd angular11-app


Adding Angular Dropdown Menu


  1. After running the Angular 11 application successfully, configure the Angular Dropdown Menu in this application. Install Angular Dropdown Menu and EJ2 package using following command.
    npm install @syncfusion/ej2-angular-splitbuttons --save


 The --save command will instruct the NPM to include a Dropdown Menu package inside the dependencies section of the package.json.

  1. Import Dropdown Menu from installed package in app.module.ts.
  2. Import and inject the other required modules within the providers section of app.module.ts.


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

import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';

import { DropDownButtonModule } from '@syncfusion/ej2-angular-splitbuttons';

import { AppComponent } from './app.component';

import { enableRipple } from '@syncfusion/ej2-base';





  declarations: [



  imports: [




  providers: [],

  bootstrap: [AppComponent]


export class AppModule { }


  1. Add the given below angular Dropdown Menu’s styles in styles.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";


  1. Add the angular Dropdown Menu component in app.component.ts.


import { Component } from '@angular/core';

import { ItemModel } from '@syncfusion/ej2-angular-splitbuttons';



  selector: 'app-root',

  template: `<button ejs-dropdownbutton [items]= 'items' content='Clipboard'></button>`


export class AppComponent {

public items: ItemModel[] = [


          text: 'Cut'



          text: 'Copy'
