The Angular Dropdown List is a quick replacement of the HTML select tags. It has a rich appearance and allows users to select a single value that is non-editable from a list of predefined values. It has several out-of-the-box features, such as data binding, filtering, grouping, UI customization, accessibility, and preselected values.
