CSS Question

How can I make the submenu in the MaterializeCSS dropdown?

I am trying to have a submenu dropdown inside a dropdown, using MaterializeCSS framework. I tried with the following code, but it didn't work.

<!-- this the main dropdown -->
<ul id="MainDropDown" class="dropdown-content">
<li><a href="#" class="dropdown-button" data-beloworigin="true" data-contrainwidth="false" data-gutter="30" data-alignment="right" data-activates="drop1">Dropdown1<span class="right caret">&#9658;</span></a></li>
<li><a href="#" class="dropdown-button" data-beloworigin="true" data-contrainwidth="false" data-gutter="30" data-alignment="right" data-activates="drop2">Dropdown2<span class="right caret">&#9658;</span></a></li>
<li><a href="#" class="dropdown-button" data-beloworigin="true" data-contrainwidth="false" data-gutter="30" data-alignment="right" data-activates="drop3">Dropdown3<span class="right scaret">&#9658;</span></a></li>
</ul>
<ul id="drop1" class="dropdown-content">
<li><a href="#">Create</a></li>
</ul>
<ul id="drop2" class="dropdown-content">
<li><a href="#">Create</a></li>
<li><a href="#">Update</a></li>
</ul>
<ul id="drop3" class="dropdown-content">
<li><a href="#">Create</a></li>
</ul>

Answer

I was having the same issue myself. Turns out it's as simple as nesting another dropdown link, setting an appropriate gutter, and making sure the overflow of dropdown-content is set to visible.

Here is a link to the modified jsfiddle linked in Nested dropdowns in materialize

https://jsfiddle.net/fb0c6b5b/

$('.dropdown-button2').dropdown({
      inDuration: 300,
      outDuration: 225,
      constrain_width: false, // Does not change width of dropdown to that of the activator
      hover: true, // Activate on hover
      gutter: ($('.dropdown-content').width()*3)/2.5 + 5, // Spacing from edge
      belowOrigin: false, // Displays dropdown below the button
      alignment: 'left' // Displays dropdown with edge aligned to the left of button
    }
  );
.dropdown-content{
    overflow: visible !important;
}

    <li><a class='dropdown-button2 d' href='#' data-activates='dropdown2' data-hover="hover" data-alignment="left">Drop Me!</a></li>
</ul>
<ul id='dropdown2' class='dropdown-content'>
    <li><a href="#!">one</a></li>
    <li><a href="#!">two</a></li>
    <li class="divider"></li>

</ul>
