Hii Everyone..
I want to send the select item from a drop down list to the database in mvc.

my only requirement is that how can all the values of drop down list {male, female}
will get save into the database.

I m new to MVC so please suggest me simple way to solve this issue
thnx in advance

What I have tried:

This is View

@{var listItems = new List<SelectListItem>
new SelectListItem {Text="Select Your Gender", Value="1"},
new SelectListItem {Text="Male", Value="2"},
new SelectListItem {Text="Female", Value="3"}


This is My HomeController

public ActionResult Create(Student s)
            Sample dbContext = new Sample();
            var v = dbContext.Students.Add(s);
            return RedirectToAction("GetAllStudent");

Only the selected item is included in a form submission so if you want to know what the non-selected values are you'll need to re-create the data yourself. As your list appears to be hard-coded it's fairly easy to work out what the non-selected values are.

From your description it is not clear what you are trying to do. However, considering you are trying to bind some list to dropdown and save selected value to database, refer and try the below.
