    public enum PeriodTypes
    {
        Monthly = 1,
        Weekly,
        Daily,
        Yearly,
        BiYearly
    }

Can I fill a DropDownList using this enum, either by looping or straight assignment?

If I delete, modify, or add to the enum ... would the drop down list pick up the change?

And is it a "good idea" to do it that way? Or am I asking for trouble down the road?

In this case it'd be Enum.GetNames(typeof(PeriodTypes))

The drop down should pick up the change so long as you re-compile after the change (assuming you deploy by pre-compiling).
