    /// <reference path="./ColumnMenu.d.ts"/>
    import * as React from 'react';
    import { GridColumnMenuFilter } from '@progress/kendo-react-grid';
    export default class ColumnMenu extends React.Component<Readonly<ColumnMenuProps>, {}> {
        render() {
            return (
                    <GridColumnMenuFilter columnMenu={this.props.columnMenu} expanded={true} />


    I am importing this into my main class and using it here:

    02.    data={process(this.props.users, this.state.gridDataState)}
    03.    {...this.state.gridDataState}
    04.    onDataStateChange={this.handleGridDataStateChange}
    05.    style={{ height: "300px" }}
    06.    pageable={true}
    07.    sortable={true}
    09.  <GridColumn  field="email" title="Email" filter={'text'} columnMenu={ColumnMenu}/>
    10.  <GridColumn  field="givenName" title="First name" />
    11.  <GridColumn  field="sn" title="Last name" />
    12.  <GridColumn  field="managerOf" title="Manager of" />


    No matter how I try to run this, I get the same error:

    1.TS2326: Types of property 'columnMenu' are incompatible.
    2.Type 'typeof ColumnMenu' is not assignable to type 'ComponentType<GridColumnMenuProps>'.
    3.Type 'typeof ColumnMenu' is not assignable to type 'StatelessComponent<GridColumnMenuProps>'.
    4.Type 'typeof ColumnMenu' provides no match for the signature '(props: GridColumnMenuProps & { children?: ReactNode; }, context?: any): ReactElement<any>'.


    Any idea how I get past this TS issue?

    For anyone stuck on this issue, this was the fix for me:

    import GridColumnMenuProps to the ColumnMenu,tsx and pass to the class

    import { GridColumnMenuFilter, GridColumnMenuProps } from '@progress/kendo-react-grid';
    export default class ColumnMenu extends React.Component<Readonly<GridColumnMenuProps>, {}> {

    Thank you for sharing the resolution with the KendoReact community, it is highly appreciated.

    The type of component can be seen in the API section. This should be null or a component that expected props from type "GridColumnMenuProps"

    As our components are written on TypeScript, these types come built into components and we export them in the package.
