The ASP.NET Core Dropdown List is a quick replacement of the HTML select tags. It has a rich appearance and allows users to select a single value that is non-editable from a list of predefined values. It has several out-of-the-box features, such as data binding, filtering, grouping, UI customization, accessibility, and preselected values.
You can bind data from a variety of data sources in an array from primitive data, JSON data collections, or a remote data source using different kinds of adaptors such as OData, OData V4, URL, JSON, and Web API. The control uses the data manager to manage data and has customization options for data requests and processing.
