    ​Hi there, I was wondering if someone could help me.  How can I bind my dropdown list to a viewbag to ensure it's getting it's data from the right place?  I found a couple of guides but they didn't work for my scenario.  Here is my code.

    // #DDL - Broker Companies
          IEnumerable<SelectListItem> thestats = seabrokersData.tbl_requirement_status
              .Select(c => new SelectListItem
                  Value =,
                  Text = c.thet_status
          ViewBag.theStatus = theStatus;


    I would like my Kendo Dropdown to use the above viewbag to populate itself.  How can I do this?

    Many thanks
