import { DropDownList } from '@progress/kendo-react-dropdowns';

class AppComponent extends React.Component {
    sizes = [ "X-Small", "Small", "Medium", "Large", "X-Large", "2X-Large" ];

    render() {
        return (
                <div>T-shirt size:</div>
                <DropDownList data={this.sizes} />

    <AppComponent />,
