Dear programming community,

I am trying to populate the dropdown list by calling a method from the controller.
The reason why i am doing this is because i want to pass it an id and therefore ill be getting a different list for each record.


grid.Column(header: "Wards", format: @<text>@Html.DropDownList(@Url.Action("getDoctorsWards", "Doctor", new { id = 1 }), "Ward_id")</text>


public ViewResult getDoctorsWards(int id)
            var myModel = db.Wards.Where(a => a.Doctor.Doctor_id == id).ToList();
            return View(myModel);

Any comments or suggestions are welcome.

You have to return the result in JSON format from controller. Then at the client side use JQuery to populate the values in the dropdown list using the JSON resultset.
