I am retrieving data from a table and want have the value that I want as the selected value for a drop down. How do I loop through the drop down and make the value dtUserExist.Rows[0]["gender"].ToString() match what is in the options of the dropdown and then make it the selected index?
The name of the dropdown is called "Gender". Please advise?

try this
                  string data = dtUserExist.Rows[0]["gender"].ToString();
                  data = data.ToLower();
                  for(int index = 0; index < this.Gender.Items.Count; index++)
                  {
                        string item = this.Gender.Items[index].ToString();
                        if(item.ToLower() == data)
                        {
                              this.Gender.SelectedIndex = index;
                              break;
                        }
                  }
