Getting Started with KendoReact ListBox

The KendoReact ListBox enables you to display lists of items and to move the items between multiple lists.

The ListView component displays a list of data items that are contained in a box and allows selecting, reordering, deleting, as well as the dragging and dropping of items. You can also connect a ListBox with another ListBox or ListBoxes. You can customize the component with the use of item rendering, toolbar positioning, and localization of its toolbar tools buttons messages.
