I have an ascx search control on a masterpage on an mvc2 app.  It comprises of a dropdown to select an option and then click input button.

However I cannot get it to post the selected value to the controller, what am I doing wrong

<% using (Html.BeginForm("actionName", "controllerName"))
 { %>

 <%= Html.DropDownListFor(x => x.CustomerSelectList, Model.CustomerSelectList)%>

   <input type="Submit" id="cust" value="Search" />
