The React Dropdown Menu is a graphical user interface component that lets users choose from a list of actions that can be triggered. It has built-in support for icons and their positioning, various sizes, separators, RTL, and UI customization.

You can make use of different dropdown button sizes (default and small).

Users tend to perceive visual information better than text. The React Dropdown Menu has built-in options to include an icon to the left or above the text, or provide an icon-only button.

The popup menu is a toggleable container that holds a list of action items or custom content that will open or close when the button is clicked. You can customize all the items in a dropdown menu.
