Drop-down Custom Component

Hello Thunkers,
I am happy to share a drop-down component made using a custom component.

The components I used are label, list view, and group.

The blocks:

Inside the “when Component Initialized” block I created the list of whatever items you want to display in our drop-down menu.

I set the list view invisible and made it visible when you click the label.

When a list item is selected I set the label of the list item and made the List Viewer invisible.

To make the custom component work with a dynamic list of options I added a property called “dynamiclist”:

As it is a string I converted it into a list using the “make list from text” block:

I set the list of items on the custom component after adding it to a project here:

To get the selected option I added an event with “selecteditem” as a parameter:

To use the parameter on the project I added the “When DropDown selecteditem” block and set the label to “selecteditem”:

You can see the project where I used the custom component here: Thunkable

To use this custom component you will need to click here and remix it

Let me know which other functionalities you would like to see implemented as custom component!

Functionally, it’s great. Visually, it’s not. Is there a way you can improve the look of it?

Hello @tatiang :wave:
Thanks for your feedback!
Every creator can remix the custom component I shared and customize the design.
Happy to see how you can improve it.

Hi @ioannis
I imported your custom component but couldn’t understand how can I use it to make a list of values in the spreadsheet to be drop down list… could you help?

Hello @c.7ooda6r
After you add the custom component to your project you can set the list of items on the custom component here:

Thanks … it works good , but unfortunately it covers other labels and text input boxes on the screen.

I have one as well if anyone wants to use it

Edit: Version 2 using updated property blocks.
