    I have a form with a drop down list inside of it.  When the form is posted I want the data in the drop down list to be written into Class B, which is an attribute of Class A on the MVC side.

    Can this be done?  Is there any way to format or pull the data from the Drop down list directly into Class B, which is inside of Class A?  Is there some way to map the input from the drop down list to this element?

    Hello Jared,

    You can achieve this either by using a custom model binder on the server side, or by subscribing to the form's submit event and modifying the values before posting them.
