Dropdown

A dropdown is the bit that drops down, and contains links or actions, NOT selected values.

To keep in mind

  • Dropdowns contain links or actions, not selected values.

When to use

  • When you’re short on space and need to provide further links or actions.

When not to use

  • When you’re actually selecting a value from a list of options, use a Select instead.
