The DropDownList enables you to bind to a list of possible values.
To configure and provide the DropDownList suggestions locally, bind it to a local data array by using the Kendo UI Data Source component.
To initialize the DropDownList by binding it to a remote data service, use the Data Source component. Remote data binding is appropriate for larger datasets, so that items are loaded on demand when displayed. You can use the DataSource for serving data from a variety of data services such as XML, JSON, and JSONP.
