My code

View

HTML
<div class="editor-label">
                @Html.LabelFor(model => model.TaxID)
            </div>
            <div class="editor-field">
                @Html.DropDownList("Tax", "select Tax class")
                @Html.ValidationMessageFor(model => model.TaxID)
            </div>


controller for loading values from database to Dropdown

ViewBag.Tax = new SelectList(db.SHP_Taxes, "TaxID", "TaxName");


for Save in controller

[HttpPost]
        public ActionResult NewProduct(Product newProduct)
        {
                        if (ModelState.IsValid)
            {
                try
                {
                    SHP_Product pro = new SHP_Product();
                    var max = db.SHP_Products.Select(x => x.ProductID).Max();
                    int inter = Convert.ToInt32(max);
pro.TaxID = newProduct.TaxID;

Please debug for the get method. In the view you must return the UserID and other model properties for the data to load and available in the form/view.
Please check post back your comments.

Instead of:
@Html.DropDownList("Tax", "select Tax class")
@Html.ValidationMessageFor(model => model.TaxID)

Try:
@Html.DropDownListFor(model => model.TaxID, ViewBag.Tax)
@Html.ValidationMessageFor(model => model.TaxID)

1 solution

Thank you all

C#
@Html.DropDownListFor(model => model.TaxID, (SelectList)ViewBag.Tax)


This one worked out for me. thank u Nathan Minier..
