Hello all,
I have many dropdowns in my forms like designation , department , state etc.I know how to populate dropdown from database but for some dropdowns I need not maintain tables.I am thinking whether it will be good to populate these dropdowns from XML file.Any suggestions if it is a good idea & how to do it.Any help will be highly appreciated.Thanks in advance.
