Fill the ddl directly after creation

Do you know a way to retrieve data right after the creation and without the need to click on the arrow ?

Here's my sample :

<EjsDropDownList ID="ddlTest" @Ref=@ddlTest Width="150px" >
    <EjsDataManager Offline="true" Url="http://localhost/BlazorTests.Server/api/values" Adaptor="Adaptors.WebApiAdaptor" CrossDomain="true"></EjsDataManager>
    <DropDownListFieldSettings Text="text" Value="value"></DropDownListFieldSettings>

Hi Brice,   
Greetings from Syncfusion Support. 
Yes, you can retrieve the DopDownList data on initial loading (without interaction) by setting the Index property as “-1”. If you set a positive value for the index property then, the specified value in the given index value will be updated in component as preselect value.  
Please find the below code 

<EjsDropDownList ID="ddlTest" Width="150px" Index=-1> 
    <EjsDataManager Url="https://ej2services.syncfusion.com/production/web-services/api/Employees" Adaptor="Adaptors.WebApiAdaptor" CrossDomain="true"></EjsDataManager> 
    <DropDownListFieldSettings Text="FirstName" Value="EmployeeID"></DropDownListFieldSettings> 

Please find the sample below link
