I am absolutely new to the MVC application.I want a dropdown list on my form I have done it this way
"<%= Html.DropDownList("Categories", (IEnumerable<SelectListItem>)ViewData["Categories"])%>"
I am sending the
viewdata[Categories] from the controller class file.
IList allCategories = _dropdownProvider.GetAllCategories(); ViewData["Categories"] = new SelectList(allCategories, "catid", "catname");
Now my requirement is that when the user selects a particular category from the dropdownlist its id should get inserted in the database, The main problem is category id I want to insert the category id in the product table where the category Id is the foreign Key.
Please tell me how can I do this.
