How you bind your dropdowns?

dropdown1.DataSource = ds; (ds is DataSet object);
dropdown1.DataTextField = "ItemName"; (Text you want to display)
dropdown1.DataValueField = "ItemId"; (Id )
dropdown1.DataBind();

Now if you do,
dropdown1.SelectedItem.Text you will get the selected text from user.
dropdown1.SelectedItem.Value will give you the Id of the selected text.

Secenario 2:
dropdown1.Items.Add("Your string");
