Please refer this code to bind the DropDownList in MVC.



This is my first MVC application
<br />
List of Employees name
<%: @Html.DropDownList("ddlEmployees", (IEnumerable<SelectListItem>)ViewData["Employees"])%>


using System.Configuration;
using System.Data;
using System.Data.SqlClient;


public class Default1Controller : Controller
    public ActionResult Index()
        ViewData["Employees"] = GetEmployees();
        return View();
    public List<SelectListItem> lst = new List<SelectListItem>();
    public IEnumerable<SelectListItem> GetEmployees()
        string constr = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["conString"].ConnectionString;
        using (SqlConnection con = new SqlConnection(constr))
            using (SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand("SELECT EmployeeId, FirstName FROM Employees", con))
                using (SqlDataAdapter da = new SqlDataAdapter(cmd))
                    DataSet ds = new DataSet();
                    lst.Add(new SelectListItem() { Text = "--Select--", Value = "" });
                    foreach (DataRow dr in ds.Tables[0].Rows)
                        lst.Add(new SelectListItem() { Text = dr["FirstName"].ToString(), Value = dr["EmployeeId"].ToString() });

        return lst;

Keep you View inside shared folder of View.
