react-md - Menu - Installation


Create accessible dropdown menus that auto-position themselves to stay within the viewport. The menus are entirely navigable with a keyboard along with some additional behavior:

  • ArrowUp and ArrowDown to focus the previous/next MenuItem that also allows wrapping
  • Home and End to focus the first/last Menuitem in the menu
  • type the starting letters of a MenuItem to focus it


npm install --save @react-md/menu

You will also need to install the following packages for their styles:

npm install --save @react-md/theme \
  @react-md/typography \
  @react-md/icon \
  @react-md/list \
  @react-md/button \
  @react-md/states \


import { render } from "react-dom";
import { DropdownMenu, MenuItem } from "@react-md/menu";

const App = () => (
  <DropdownMenu id="example-dropdown-menu" buttonChildren="Dropdown">
    <MenuItem onClick={() => console.log("Clicked Item 1")}>Item 1</MenuItem>
    <MenuItem onClick={() => console.log("Clicked Item 2")}>Item 2</MenuItem>
    <MenuItem onClick={() => console.log("Clicked Item 3")}>Item 3</MenuItem>

render(<App />, document.getElementById("root"));
