Drop

Position any element in relation to another element.

Usage

Any content, like a button, can toggle the drop component. Just add the uk-drop attribute to a block element following the toggle.

<button type="button"></button>
<div uk-drop></div>

A dropdown can be enabled by hovering and clicking the toggle. Just add the mode: click option to the attribute to force click mode only. If you want to group the toggle and the dropdown, you can just add the .uk-inline class from the Utility component to a container element around both.

<div class="uk-inline">
    <button type="button"></button>
    <div uk-drop="mode: click"></div>
</div>

Note The Drop component has no default styling. In this example, we've used a card from the Card component for visualization.

    <div class="uk-inline">
        <button class="uk-button uk-button-default" type="button">Click</button>
        <div uk-drop="mode: click">
            <div class="uk-card uk-card-body uk-card-default">Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt.</div>
        </div>
    </div>

Grid in drop

You can place a grid from the Grid component inside a drop. Just wrap the content with a <div> element and add the uk-grid attribute. If the grid should stack automatically, whenever the drop no longer fits its container, just add the .uk-drop-grid class.

<div class="uk-width-large" uk-drop>
    <div class="uk-drop-grid uk-child-width-1-2@m" uk-grid>...</div>
</div>

Use one of the classes from the Width component to adjust the drop's width.

Boundary

By default, the drop flips automatically when it exceeds the viewport's edge. If you want to flip it according to a container's boundary, just add the boundary: .my-class option to the uk-drop attribute, using a selector for the container. That way you can determine any parent element as the drop's boundary.

<div class="my-class">
    <button type="button"></button>
    <div uk-drop="boundary: .my-class"></div>
</div>
  • Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt.
    Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt.
  • <div class="boundary uk-panel uk-placeholder uk-width-2-3@s">
    
        <button class="uk-button uk-button-default uk-float-left" type="button">Hover</button>
        <div uk-drop="boundary: .boundary">
            <div class="uk-card uk-card-body uk-card-default">Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt.</div>
        </div>
    
        <button class="uk-button uk-button-default uk-float-right" type="button">Hover</button>
        <div uk-drop="boundary: .boundary">
            <div class="uk-card uk-card-body uk-card-default">Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt.</div>
        </div>
    
    </div>

Boundary alignment

You can also align the drop to its boundary. To do so, add the boundary-align: true option to the attribute.

<div class="my-class">
    <button type="button"></button>
    <div uk-drop="boundary: .my-class; boundary-align: true"></div>
</div>
  • Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt.
    Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt.
  • <div class="boundary-align uk-panel uk-placeholder">
    
        <button class="uk-button uk-button-default uk-float-left" type="button">Justify</button>
        <div uk-drop="pos: bottom-justify; boundary: .boundary-align; boundary-align: true">
            <div class="uk-card uk-card-body uk-card-default">Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt.</div>
        </div>
    
        <button class="uk-button uk-button-default uk-float-right" type="button">Center</button>
        <div uk-drop="pos: bottom-center; boundary: .boundary-align; boundary-align: true">
            <div class="uk-card uk-card-body uk-card-default">Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt.</div>
        </div>
    
    </div>

Offset

To define a custom offset between the drop container and the toggle, add the offset option with a value for the offset, measured in pixels.

<div uk-drop="offset: 80"></div>
  • Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt.
  • <button class="uk-button uk-button-default" type="button">Hover</button>
    <div uk-drop="offset: 80">
        <div class="uk-card uk-card-body uk-card-default">Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt.</div>
    </div>

Animation

Apply one or more animations to the dropdown by adding the animation: uk-animation-* option with one of the classes from the Animation component. You can also determine the animation's duration. Just add the duration option with your value.

<div uk-drop="animation: uk-animation-slide-top-small; duration: 1000"></div>
  • Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt.
  • <button class="uk-button uk-button-default" type="button">Hover</button>
    <div uk-drop="animation: uk-animation-slide-top-small; duration: 1000">
        <div class="uk-card uk-card-body uk-card-default">Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt.</div>
    </div>
