A collapsible list of buttons.

In the image below you see a template editor with a label "Dropdown" and the dropdown component right below the label. When the dropdown is first added to the template it is rendered with just an icon.

In the appearance group you can change the text displayed in the buttons to your own text or change it to an expression as label. Here you can also add an icon to the button and chance the color of the button text and icon.
