Hello I need help with the following scenario...
Given a class called Product with a shared method GetProducts() that returns an IEnumerable collection of Product objects with the properties ID and Desc, how would you populate a drop down list?

Hello, thank you for your help!

I have never worked with an IEnumerable collection of objects. From your post I gather it binds to the DDL just like any other call to get data like this for example:

Dim Products As IList = ProductManager.GetProducts
DropdownList.Datasource = Products
DropdownList.TextField = "Desc"
DropdownList.ValueField = "ID"
DropdownList.DataBind()

Thanks again!
