Thank you so much for replying. I see what you are trying to do, unfortunately its not working for me since my situation is a little different than what you've posted above.

Below is a snippet of the MerchandiseServiceClient class definition inside of the Models folder
public class MerchandiseServiceClient
{
       private string BaseURL = "http://localhost:14000/MerchandiseService.svc/";
       public Merchandise FindMerchandiseByID(string id)
       {
           try
           {
               var webClient = new WebClient();
               string url = string.Format(BaseURL + "FindMerchandiseByID/{0}", id);
               var javascriptSerializer = new JavaScriptSerializer();
               return javascriptserializer.Deserialize<Merchandise>(jsn);
           }
           catch
           {
               return null;
           }
       }

       public List<Category> FindAllCategories()
       {
           try
           {
               var webClient = new WebClient();
               var jsn = webClient.DownloadString(BaseURL + "FindAllCategories");
               var javascriptSerializer = new JavaScriptSerializer();
               return javascriptSerializer.Deserialize<List<Category>>(jsn);
           }
           catch
           {
               return null;
           }
       }
       .
       .
       .
       .
}

The MerchandiseServiceClient class is one of many classes in the Models folder. The FindAllCategories() method of the MerchandiseServiceClient class gets JSON data from a RESTful WCF service and it returns a List of Category objects.

I tried to use this List of Category objects to populate the dropdownlist but it is not working. Please see my code below.

MerchandiseController
[HttpGet]
public ActionResult Edit(string id)
{
  MerchandiseServiceClient msc = new MerchandiseServiceClient();  
  ViewBag.categoryList = msc.FindAllCategories();
          
  MerchandiseViewModel mvm = new MerchandiseViewModel();
  mvm.Merchandise = msc.FindMerchandiseByID(id);
            
  return View("Edit", mvm);   
}

Edit View
<tr>
 <td>@Html.LabelFor(model=>model.Category.ID, "Category")</td>
 <td> @Html.DropDownListFor(model => model.Category.ID, (SelectList)ViewBag.categoryList, "Select A Category")</td>  
</tr>
