The React DropDowns, part of KendoReact, offer a highly customizable interface for users to select different items from a list, search in large lists, and more. All KendoReact DropDowns are following the best accessibility standards.

What's in this package (ToC):

React AutoComplete Component

The KendoReact AutoComplete component is part of KendoReact and lets your end-users type text into an input element and a list of suggested items will appear in a popup beneath. With suggestions turned on, the React AutoComplete will fill in the input field with suggestions from the underlying data, saving the user a lot of time when selecting data in the AutoComplete.

React ComboBox Component

The KendoReact ComboBox component is part of KendoReact and is a form component designed to let end users choose a predefined value from a list, and often is used as a much richer version of the select HTML element. Initially popularized by Material Design, Floating Labels have become so popular that almost any input can take advantage of their sleek look and feel. With the suggestion feature enabled, the KendoReact ComboBox will attempt to autofill the input element based on the closest available value.

React MultiColumnComboBox Component

The KendoReact MultiColumnComboBox component provides a dropdown component that displays information about items in multiple fields arranged in columns. The KendoReact MultiColumn ComboBox comes with filtering, grouping, virtualization and more handy features. When handling larger sets of data, it is very helpful to organize information in categories. With grouping enabled, the React MultiColumn ComboBox can group all data items by a particular field.

React DropDown List Component

The KendoReact DropDownList component is a form component that enables end users to choose a single predefined value from a list, without support for typing in values, and is a richer form of the select element. The KendoReact DropDownList can be bound to various forms of data, including datasets of objects, an array of primitive values or binding directly to a single value property. Additionally, the React DropDown List can bind separate fields to the displayed text and the underlying value. By Default, the KendoReact DropDownList will render an empty area if no value has been displayed. Some requirements may call for some sort of placeholder string indicating what the DropDownList component is for, which is where the default item feature comes in.

React DropDownTree Component

A combination of a TreeView and a DropDown component, the KendoReact DropDownTree component is perfect for forms that need to display complex data concisely. When users interact with this simple input element, the dropdown opens up to reveal a built-in TreeView with a hierarchical structure.

React MultiSelect Component

The KendoReact MultiSelect component is a form component that displays a list of options in a popup and allows for multiple items to be selected from this list. Each selected item is rendered as a tag in the input element. With the custom tags feature, the MultiSelect can customize what to display when an item is selected, including having a single tag representing all selected items.

React MultiSelectTree Component

The KendoReact MultiSelectTree component is a form component that lets you choose multiple predefined values from a hierarchical list and is a richer version of the select element. The component supports filtering, custom rendering, keyboard navigation, expand and collapse of the hierarchical data items.
