  • Question

  • HI,

    How to create a dropdownlist in ASP.net MVC View.

    I am using somthing like this

    <% using (Html.BeginForm()) { %>
        <%= Html.DropDownList(“lstProducts”, new SelectList((IEnumerable)ViewData["ProductList"], “Name”)) %>
        <input type=”submit” value=”Submit” />

    <% } %>

    where ProductList is a List<> that is fetched through LINQ from the tables and "Name" is the Coloumn Name which will show in DropDownList.

    My View Page is Something like this......


    ViewBag.Title = "Selector";



    h2>This is Selector Page</h2>

    i am using it but when i m seeing my application in running mode so its not showing anything...

    plz tell me where i am wrong and where this code should use in View...

    Thanks in advance!!

  • Hi Max,

    Are you certain that the List<Products> is being populated in your model or controller to be sent to the page? Also, are you sending the the ProductList to your view from your controller?
