Fill DropdownList through JSON data using jQuery

Hi all,

try this example to Fill DropdownList through JSON data using jQuery

1) Open VS2008 and create a new website and add new web page

2) From Toolbox drag Lable and DropdownList

 <asp:DropDownList ID="DropDownList1"runat="server"/>
 <asp:Label ID="msg"runat="server"></asp:Label>

3) In Code behind add the following code :

public static List<Employee> fetchData()
 return new List<Employee>()
 new Employee{ Fullname="Aamir Hasan", ID=1},
 new Employee{ Fullname="Awais Ahmed", ID=2},
 new Employee{ Fullname="Mahwish Khan", ID=3},
 new Employee{ Fullname="Saba Khan", ID=4},
 new Employee{ Fullname="Hina Ahmed", ID=5},
 new Employee{ Fullname="Gill Gate", ID=6}

public class Employee
 public string Fullname { get; set; }
 public int ID { get; set; }

4) Now add this script to fill Dropdownlist

<script src="Scripts/jquery-1.4.1.js"type="text/javascript"></script>
 <script language="javascript">
 type: "POST",
 url: "Default.aspx/fetchData",
 data: "{}",
 contentType: "application/json; charset=utf-8",
 dataType: "json",
 success: function (response) {
 var Dropdown = $('#<%=DropDownList1.ClientID %>');
 Dropdown.append(new Option("SELECT", 0));
 $.each(response.d, function (index, item) {
 Dropdown.append(new Option(item.Fullname, item.ID));
 error: function () {
 alert("Failed to load data");

$(document).ready(function () {
 var dropdown = $('#<%=DropDownList1.ClientID %>');
 dropdown.change(function () {


Now run your page

Hope this helps

Good Luck
