  • ASP.NET MVC DropDownList Overview

    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.
