jQWidgets is a JavaScript framework for making web-based applications for PC and mobile devices. It is a very powerful, optimized, platform-independent, and widely supported framework. The jqxDropDownButton is used to illustrate a jQuery widget that contains a number of selectable as well as expandable items displayed in the dropdown button.

The template property is used to specify the template of the displayed dropdown button which is used as an option of the default styles. It is of string type and the default value is ‘default’.

There are several possible values that are applicable with the template property that is given below:

  • default: As the name suggests, this is the default template. The style will depend only on the value of the “theme” property.
  • primary: For displaying an extra visual weight, it uses a dark blue for styling.
  • success: For displaying the successful or positive action, it uses the green color for style.
  • warning: The orange style is used to indicates caution.
  • danger: For indicating a dangerous or negative action, it uses the red color for style
  • info: It is a blue button that is not tied to a semantic action or use.


  • It is used to set the template property.
$("Selector").jqxDropDownButton({ template: 'primary'});
  • It is used to get the template property.
var template = $('Selector').jqxDropDownButton('template');
