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>

Dropdown menu left and right align

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 alight the dropdown menu we are using the left and right props. The dropdown menu can either be left aligned (default) or right aligned concerning the button above it. To have the dropdown aligned on the right, we are using the right props. 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 text="Select City" left 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-item>Kerala</b-dropdown-item>
          </b-dropdown>

          <b-dropdown text="Select City" right 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-item>Kerala</b-dropdown-item>
          </b-dropdown>
        </b-col>
      </b-row>
    </b-container>
  </div>

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