The Telerik UI SplitButton HtmlHelper for ASP.NET MVC is a server-side wrapper 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");
