The Telerik UI SplitButton TagHelper and HtmlHelper for ASP.NET Core are server-side wrappers for the Kendo UI SplitButton widget.

The SplitButton combines the functionality of a button with that of a dropdown element. It allows users to either click on the primary button and run its default behavior, or to open the drop-down popup and choose from a list of additional actions.

Initializing the SplitButton

The following example demonstrates how to define the SplitButton.

    @(Html.Kendo().SplitButton()
        .Name("splitButton")

        .Items(items => {
            items.Add().Id("keep-text").Text("Keep Text Only").Icon("paste-plain-text");
            items.Add().Id("paste-html").Text("Paste as HTML").Icon("paste-as-html");
            items.Add().Id("paste-markdown").Text("Paste Markdown").Icon("paste-markdown");
            items.Add().Id("paste-default").Text("Set Default Paste");
        })
    )
    <kendo-splitbutton name="splitButton" text="Paste" icon="paste">
