I don't add the operation contract there because I thought it will be easier for experts to understand what I am trying to do. For sure, the code is working and I tested it in WCF test client already. I just don't know how to consume it :-( in List.

Both url you mentioned, I already read long time ago. It does not help me to resolve this question.

To get the list:
ServiceRef.ServiceClient sc = new ServiceRef.ServiceClient();
List<State> states =  sc.GetStateList();

Open in new window

and you consume the states variable in your code

Regarding dropdown binding, typically you build a IEnumerable<SelectListItem> as per link below:

Keep in mind that for building the dropdown items Text = Value = item.stateName  , because you only have one property in your State object.
