Create FirstComponent.vue and import it into App.js

Create the new component in the src/components/ components folder. the component name is FirstComponent.vue and imported into the App.js file:

App.js

<template>
  <div id="app">
    <FirstComponent />
  </div>
</template>

<script>
import FirstComponent from "./components/FirstComponent.vue";
export default {
  name: "App",
  components: {
    FirstComponent,
  },
};
</script>

<style>
#app {
  font-family: Avenir, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;
  -webkit-font-smoothing: antialiased;
  -moz-osx-font-smoothing: grayscale;
  text-align: center;
  color: #2c3e50;
  margin-top: 60px;
}
</style>

Add a split button link in the dropdown

For adding the dropdown we are using the BootstrapVue b-dropdown component.<b-dropdown> components are toggleable, contextual overlays for displaying the links. This button is toggled by clicking or pressing space or enter when focused. And the <b-dropdown-item> sub-component will show the action items that provide click, link functionality. This will work as a <a> tag. In short, Renders is an <a> element by default.

And to add the dropdown button link we are going to use the split-href props. The split dropdown on the left side defaults to a button type. To convert this button into a link or <router-link> we specify the split-href props or router link to value via the split-to props, while maintaining the button look. Let’s see the code example:

FirstComponent.js

<template>
  <div>
    <b-container fluid>
      <b-row>
        <b-col md="6" offset-md="3">
          <h1 class="m-5">Welcome to sortoutcode.com</h1>
          <b-dropdown split split-href="https://sortoutcode.com/" text="Split Dropdown With link" class="m-2">
            <b-dropdown-item>Mumbai</b-dropdown-item>
            <b-dropdown-item>Kolkata</b-dropdown-item>
            <b-dropdown-item>Delhi</b-dropdown-item>
            <b-dropdown-item>Kerala</b-dropdown-item>
          </b-dropdown>
        </b-col>
      </b-row>
    </b-container>
  </div>

</template>
<script>
export default {
  name: "FirstComponent",
};
</script>

For now, let’s check the output.
