    Hi, I couldn't find a Kendo UI for React forum so I thought I might try to post this here. I am trying to create a toolbar with multiselect dropdowns that have a remote datasource. The intent is to give options for custom filtering for a grid. I tried to go off the examples available but there are no dataSource examples for React for a dropdown/multiselect template in a toolbar. I've tried doing a basic local dataSource example to get started and even that isn't working. Can someone help? 

    Here is an excerpt from my code of how I define and render the toolbar. The end goal is to replace the dataSource with a remote dataSource.


    const toolbarOptions = {

    items: [

        { template: "<label for='dropdown'>Materials:</label>"},
              template: "<select id='material-dropdown' style='width: 150px;' />",
              dataSource: [{ item: "Item 1", value: 1 }, { item: "Item 2", value: 2 }],
              dataTextField: "item",
              dataValueField: "value",
              overflow: "never"





       <div className="toolbar">

             <ToolBar {...toolbarOptions}/>

    Hello, Kara,

    This Kendo UI forum currently can be used for a React and Vue questions as well.

    The Kendo UI ToolBar currently does not support the provided configurations in the code snippet. Please check its available options:

    In this scenario, I can suggest saving the data from the remote service in a variable and then pass that variable to the menuButtons which will create a DropDownList:

    Also, the native React ToolBar should support placing another component(in this case MultiSelect) inside its template, but the release date for the native ToolBar is not confirmed.
