The following sample script is useful to transform a list that contains many action links into a single dropdown select box.

Place these codes in Userview Builder > Settings.

Custom Javascript
window.addEventListener('load', function () {

        $("tbody:visible > tr:visible").each(function(){
            actionLink = $("li.action-link-modal").clone();
            if($(this).find("td.row_action a").size() > 0){
                $(this).find("td.row_action a").each(function(){
                    $(actionLink).find("ul").append( "<li>" + $(this).prop("outerHTML") + "</li>");
                $(this).find(".footable-last-column").append( actionLink );
                $(this).find(".footable-last-column .row_action_inner").remove();
        if($("tbody:visible > tr:visible").size() > 0){
    }, 1000);

}, false);

The script above will affect all datalist in the app. If you want to only apply it to a certain datalist, change lines 4 and 18 accordingly by prepending the datalist ID.

This is how line 4 will look like after appending the datalist ID.

$("#requestListAll > tbody:visible > tr").each(function(){

This is how line 18 will look like after appending the datalist ID.

if($("#requestListAll > tbody:visible > tr:visible").size() > 0){
