Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe...

I propose that b-dropdown-item and all other dropdown subcomponents (b-dropdown-group, b-dropdown-text, ...) should accept a list-item-class prop, which consistently adds a class attribute to the component root elements. This makes it easier to style dropdown children.

Describe the solution you'd like

Adding list-item-class to any dropdown subcomponent should result in the following rendered markup


  <b-dd-group list-item-class="clazz" />

Rendered output

<!-- other properties omitted for clarity -->
  <li class="clazz" />

While adding a class prop currently works for <b-dropdown-item>, it does not work for many other dropdown subcomponents. Adding a class to e.g. a <b-dropdown-text> adds the class to the nested span element instead of the root li element.

Describe alternatives you've considered

I've considered using :nth-child selectors to style the dropdown children, but this seems hacky and also does not work for complex setups. (e.g. multi-column).

The <li>is the root element of all dropdown child components, hence you can just add class="foobar" to any of the dropdown child elements (i.e. <b-dropdown-item class="foo">).

Note if you are using scoped style classes to target child elements within the dropdown sub-component, you need to use Vue-Loader's deep selectors.

@tmorehouse Thank you for your response. Adding a class to a <b-dropdown item> works perfectly.

But this feature proposal aims at all the other possible dropdown child elements (e.g. <b-dropdown-group>) where this currently does not work.

I'll adjust where vue-functional-data-merge merges on the data
