        <DropDownMenuItem Text="Edit"></DropDownMenuItem>
        <DropDownMenuItem Text="Copy"></DropDownMenuItem>
        <DropDownMenuItem Text="Paste"></DropDownMenuItem>

@code {
    public string IconCss = "";
    private void beforeOpen(BeforeOpenCloseMenuEventArgs args)
        this.IconCss = "e-caret-up";
    private void beforeClose(BeforeOpenCloseMenuEventArgs args)
