The MVC DropDownList widget offers a simple and lightweight single selection drop-down list of items. It uses advanced CSS rendering with list items, rather than HTML tables, to keep the page output clean and minimal. The semantic rendering improves app responsiveness and makes your web pages more SEO friendly.
Utilize the built-in client and server validation of ASP.NET MVC with the Telerik DropDownList component. This ensures you can properly display validation messages if a data processing error has occurred.
Using the Telerik DropDownList, you’ll leverage other standard Telerik Kendo UI framework features like a user-friendly end user experience, enhanced mobile, keyboard and RTL support, templates and rich API with a comprehensive set of events.
