SplitButton with Embedded Icons

You can also use custom icons (image or font icons) and fine-tune their position, color and size.

For live example of how SplitButton works with Icons check out our demo - Icons


To make the control easier to use, Telerik provides a large set of built-in icons. To use them, set the Icon.CssClass property (Example 1) to one of the predefined CSS class names, and the respective icon will be shown inside the Button part of the control.

To use built-in icons in the ContextMenu options of the SplitButton, enable the EnableImageSprite property of the corresponding MenuItem and set the icon class in the SpriteCssClass preceded with the "p-icon" class name.

Declaration of SplitButton shown in the image above:

<telerik:RadSplitButton ID="RadSplitButton1" runat="server" Text="Button with Icon">
    <Icon CssClass="rbOk" />
            <telerik:RadMenuItem Text="Ok" EnableImageSprite="true" SpriteCssClass="p-icon rbOk"></telerik:RadMenuItem>
            <telerik:RadMenuItem Text="Add" EnableImageSprite="true" SpriteCssClass="p-icon rbAdd"></telerik:RadMenuItem>
            <telerik:RadMenuItem Text="Remove" EnableImageSprite="true" SpriteCssClass="p-icon rbRemove"></telerik:RadMenuItem>
            <telerik:RadMenuItem Text="Edit" EnableImageSprite="true" SpriteCssClass="p-icon rbEdit"></telerik:RadMenuItem>
