Add dropdown color variant

For adding dropdown button size 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 different dropdown color variants. we are using the variant props and its value is success, primary, info, danger, link, outline-dark etc. for the dropdown color variant in BootstrapVue. And the default variant color is secondary.Let’s see the code example:

FirstComponent.js

<template>
  <div>
    <b-container fluid>
      <b-row>
        <b-col md="6" offset-md="3">
          <h1>Welcome to sortoutcode.com</h1>
          <b-dropdown variant="success" id="dropdown-1" text="Select City" class="m-md-2">
            <b-dropdown-item>Mumbai</b-dropdown-item>
            <b-dropdown-item>Kolkata</b-dropdown-item>
            <b-dropdown-item>Delhi</b-dropdown-item>
          </b-dropdown>

          <b-dropdown variant="info" id="dropdown-1" text="Select City" class="m-md-2">
            <b-dropdown-item>Mumbai</b-dropdown-item>

            <b-dropdown-item>Delhi</b-dropdown-item>
          </b-dropdown>

          <b-dropdown variant="danger" id="dropdown-1" text="Select City" class="m-md-2">
