using an unicode char

.test:after {
  content: '\2807';
  font-size: 100px;
  }
<div class="test"></div>

Try this complete source code for 3 dot menu:

index.html

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <html>
        <head>
            <title>Three Dot Menu</title>

            <script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.3/jquery.min.js"></script>

            <style>
                *{margin: 0;padding:0px}

                .header{
                    width: 100%;
                    background-color: #0d77b6 !important;
                    height: 60px;
                }

                .showLeft{
                    background-color: #0d77b6 !important;
                    border:1px solid #0d77b6 !important;
                    text-shadow: none !important;
                    color:#fff !important;
                    padding:10px;
                }

If you are using font-awesome, it is as easy as including the .fa-ellipsis-v style. Further documentation is found here: http://fontawesome.io/icon/ellipsis-v/.


  1. With fontawesome.css

    <i class='fa fa-ellipsis-v'></i>
    
  2. With Glyphicons

    <span class="glyphicons glyphicons-option-vertical"></span>
    
  3. With css

    .textSpan:after {
     content: '\2807';
     font-size: 3em;
     color: #2e2e2e
    }
    

HTML

<div class="dot"></div>

css:

.dot{
    width: 10px;
    height: 10px;
    background: red;
    -moz-border-radius: 5px;
    -webkit-border-radius: 5px;
    border-radius: 5px;
}

<script> <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1"/>
 <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/font-awesome/4.7.0/css/font-awesome.min.css"></link></script>

 <i class="fa fa-ellipsis-v col-2 mt-3 .text-light fa-lg" style={{"float":"right"}}></i>

This can be used to see three dots.This can be used in cards in react
