The SplitButton is part of Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core, a professional grade UI library with 110+ components for building modern and feature-rich applications. To try it out sign up for a free 30-day trial.

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.

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