I am not able to bind the selected value to dropdown on th etime of edit. I am Explaining my whole procedure I have One Textbox named Occupanytype,one another textbox named Tariff and dropdownlsist named secondaryOccupancy. To fill data in Occupanytype i use jquery autocomplete. I have writtten the code in source property of autocomplete. On selection of the data from Occupanytype,my textbox named Tariff will get filled and my dropdownlist will have items filled in it. After That i will select one item from Dropdownlist and will Save the Data.
