A drop-down list can be used with custom widgets. It allows you to display a list of widgets under a displayed widget. Unlike other toolkits, the list of widgets can contain any type of widget: simple buttons, images etc. The positioning of the drop-down list is fully automatic: we will always try to place the dropdown list in a way that the user can select an item in the list. Some important points to keep in mind while making a drop-down list:
- When adding widgets, we need to specify the height manually (disabling the size_hint_y) so the dropdown can calculate the area it needs.
- All the buttons within the dropdown list will trigger the dropdown DropDown.select() method. After being called, the main button text will display the selection of the dropdown.
