I am having some trouble grasping some concepts behind the MVC framework. I am doing a very simple application which categorizes products.
The Creation screen will simply use a dropdown list showing the list of categories, the name of the product and submit.
On a normal .Net app, I would databind a server dropdownlist in the Page_Load, but in a MVC app, what is the best way to retrieve my categories from the database and add them to the dropdown list?
(Sorry, my question is extremely noobish but unfortunately resources are spare on MVC, and examples are often broken due to early changes)
