Pass viewdata attribute in dropdownlist html designing code

Html.DropDownList("CarsList", new SelectList((IEnumerable)ViewData["CarsList"], "ID", "Name"))


first get required data from database and then pass the resultant data to view from controller using viewdata attribute

public ActionResult GetData()
var CarNames = from c in obj.Cars
select c;

ViewData["Carsist"] = CarNames;

return View();
