Starting with MVC4, the following are the basis of the study notes!

The finished result like this, the data source is already some Database.


public ActionResult Index()

            SqlConnection DbErp = new SqlConnection(ErpString); //Create a database connection
            SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand("select dep,name from dept",DbErp); //Enter the SQL command
            DbErp.Open(); //Open database connectivity

            var reader = cmd.ExecuteReader(); //Remove the result set

            List<SelectListItem> depts = new List<SelectListItem>();

            while(reader.Read()){ //Note read data written to the List
                //(0)=dep ; (1)=name
                depts.Add(new SelectListItem { Text = reader.GetString(1), Value = reader.GetString(0)});

            DbErp.Close(); //Close the database connection

            ViewBag.DeptType = depts;

            return View();


<h2>Repair requisition</h2>
