Bootstrap 4: Multilevel Dropdown Inside Navigation

What's the easiest way to make a multilevel dropdown in Bootstrap 4? All the examples I managed to find on SO were either too messy or not included in nav.

I've tried just placing a dropdown inside a dropdown, but that doesn't seem like it's working. Can someone help me with this one?

Here's the basic outline of my code:

    </ul>
  </div>

I use the following piece of css and javacript. It uses an extra class dropdown-submenu. I tested it with Bootstrap 4 beta.

It supports multi level sub menus.

$('.dropdown-menu a.dropdown-toggle').on('click', function(e) {
  if (!$(this).next().hasClass('show')) {
    $(this).parents('.dropdown-menu').first().find('.show').removeClass('show');
  }
  var $subMenu = $(this).next('.dropdown-menu');
  $subMenu.toggleClass('show');


  $(this).parents('li.nav-item.dropdown.show').on('hidden.bs.dropdown', function(e) {
    $('.dropdown-submenu .show').removeClass('show');
  });


  return false;
});
.dropdown-submenu {
  position: relative;
}

.dropdown-submenu a::after {
  transform: rotate(-90deg);
  position: absolute;
  right: 6px;
  top: .8em;
}

.dropdown-submenu .dropdown-menu {
  top: 0;
  left: 100%;
  margin-left: .1rem;
  margin-right: .1rem;
}

Updated 2018

Here is another variation on the Bootstrap 4.1 Navbar with multi-level dropdown. This one uses minimal CSS for the submenu, and can be re-positioned as desired:

https://www.codeply.com/go/nG6iMAmI2X

.dropdown-submenu {
  position: relative;
}

.dropdown-submenu .dropdown-menu {
  top: 0;
  left: 100%;
  margin-top: -1px;
}

jQuery to control display of submenus:

$('.dropdown-submenu > a').on("click", function(e) {
    var submenu = $(this);
    $('.dropdown-submenu .dropdown-menu').removeClass('show');
    submenu.next('.dropdown-menu').addClass('show');
    e.stopPropagation();
});

$('.dropdown').on("hidden.bs.dropdown", function() {
    // hide any open menus when parent closes
    $('.dropdown-menu.show').removeClass('show');
});

See this answer for activating the Bootstrap 4 submenus on hover


I found this multidrop-down menu which work great in all device.

Also, have hover style

It supports multi-level submenus with bootstrap 4.

$( document ).ready( function () {
    $( '.navbar a.dropdown-toggle' ).on( 'click', function ( e ) {
        var $el = $( this );
        var $parent = $( this ).offsetParent( ".dropdown-menu" );
        $( this ).parent( "li" ).toggleClass( 'show' );

        if ( !$parent.parent().hasClass( 'navbar-nav' ) ) {
            $el.next().css( { "top": $el[0].offsetTop, "left": $parent.outerWidth() - 4 } );
        }
        $( '.navbar-nav li.show' ).not( $( this ).parents( "li" ) ).removeClass( "show" );
        return false;
    } );
} );
.navbar-light .navbar-nav .nav-link {
    color: rgb(64, 64, 64);
}
.btco-menu li > a {
    padding: 10px 15px;
    color: #000;
}

.btco-menu .active a:focus,
.btco-menu li a:focus ,
.navbar > .show > a:focus{
    background: transparent;
    outline: 0;
}

.dropdown-menu .show > .dropdown-toggle::after{
    transform: rotate(-90deg);
}

The following is MultiLevel dropdown based on bootstrap4. I tried it was according to the bootstrap4 basic dropdown.

.dropdown-submenu{
    position: relative;
}
.dropdown-submenu a::after{
    transform: rotate(-90deg);
    position: absolute;
    right: 3px;
    top: 40%;
}
.dropdown-submenu:hover .dropdown-menu, .dropdown-submenu:focus .dropdown-menu{
    display: flex;
    flex-direction: column;
    position: absolute !important;
    margin-top: -30px;
    left: 100%;
}
@media (max-width: 992px) {
    .dropdown-menu{
        width: 50%;
    }
    .dropdown-menu .dropdown-submenu{
        width: auto;
    }
}
