A material design button for selecting from a list of items.

A dropdown button lets the user select from a number of items. The button shows the currently selected item as well as an arrow that opens a menu for selecting another item.

The type T is the type of the values the dropdown menu represents. All the entries in a given menu must represent values with consistent types. Typically, an enum is used. Each DropdownMenuItem in items must be specialized with that same type argument.

Requires one of its ancestors to be a Material widget.
