protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
protected void bindDropDownList()
string constr = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["yourConnectionString"].ToString();         
SqlConnection con =new SqlConnection (constr);
SqlCommand com=new SqlCommand ("select * from ROLEID",con); 
SqlDataAdapter da=new SqlDataAdapter(com);
DataSet ds = new DataSet (); 
DropDownList1.DataTextField = ds.Tables[0].Columns["ROLE"].ToString();         DropDownList1.DataValueField=ds.Tables[0].Columns["ID"].ToString();

Remember that you should use stored procedure in place of direct query.

I think you are a beginner and need ADO.Net knowledge first.
Please go through the basics of .Net development.
