(I don't like dropdowns)Dropdown doesn't show selected value

Dropdown is my least favorite control :)

This is MVC/C#.

This is the code
<select class="form-control zone1" name="Schedules[@i].DefaultTimeZone">
						var selectedId = anySavedSchedules ? item.DefaultTimeZone : Model.UserDefaultTimezone;
						foreach (var zone in ViewBag.Timezones)

							<option @(zone.Id == selectedId ? "selected=\"selected\"" : "") value="@zone.Id">@zone.DisplayName</option>

Open in new window

I see the "selected" but when the page loads, I don't see the value in the dropdown What am I missing?

You shouldn't need selected=""selected"", just selected should be fine.

<option @(zone.Id == selectedId ? "selected" : "") value="@zone.Id">@zone.DisplayName</option>

Open in new window

But, it should still show the selection.  Something in JS or CSS somewhere that doesn't like that?  In the console, if you grab the element can you return the selected value?

Let me take a look again. I'll copy the select element from Console to another page and see if that works.
