Tailwind CSS: How to Create a Hoverable Dropdown Menu
A dropdown menu is a toggleable menu that allows the user to select an option or go to a link from a list of items. A hover dropdown menu will be opened when the user’s mouse hovers over a certain area (e.g., a button). It will help your website save space and only show the menu as needed.
- We add the peer class to the button so that we can style the menu based on the button’s state (with the peer-hover modifier). In the beginning, the menu is hidden (with the hidden utility). When the mouse cursor hovers over the button, the menu will show up (with peer-hover:flex).
- The menu still needs to be displayed when the mouse pointer moves over its items. That’s why we use hover:flex.
- In addition to the above important points, we also give the menu a drop shadow and style its items to make it more elegent.
