Adding new options in Dropdown dynamically using ReactJS
Creating our own options in the dropdown means that whenever the user types any new value other than the values shown in the options, that new value should be added to the drop down menu as an option. Material UI for React has this component available for us and it is very easy to integrate.

npx create-react-app foldername

Step 3: After creating the ReactJS application, Install the material-ui modules using the following command:
npm install @material-ui/core npm install @material-ui/lab
