How to use it?

1. Install the component with npm.

npm install react-bootstrap-dropdown-menu --save

2. Include the Bootstrap library if not included in your project.

<link href="https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.3.7/css/bootstrap.min.css" rel="stylesheet" media="all">

3. Import the component.

import React from 'react';
import { DropdownMenu, MenuItem } from 'react-bootstrap-dropdown-menu';

4. Create the drop-down menu as following.

class SettingsMenu extends React.Component {
  constructor() {
    this.deleteAccount = this.deleteAccount.bind(this);
    this.logout = this.logout.bind(this);

  deleteAccount(e) {
    console.log("Deleting Account")

  logout(e) {
    console.log("Logging out")

  render() {
    return (
      <DropdownMenu userName="Chris Smith">
        <MenuItem text="Home" location="/home" />
        <MenuItem text="Edit Profile" location="/profile" />
        <MenuItem text="Change Password" location="/change-password" />
        <MenuItem text="Privacy Settings" location="/privacy-settings" />
        <MenuItem text="Delete Account" onClick={this.deleteAccount} />
        <MenuItem text="Logout" onClick={this.logout} />

export default SettingsMenu;
