Hi Jeet, 

You need to use like this.For an Empty drop down list with out any value you should use.


@Html.DropDownList("statusList", new List<SelectListItem> { }, String.Empty, new { disabled = "disabled" })

and if you want to populate values as well you can use like this.



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

  list.Add(new SelectListItem {  Value="1", Text="Test Status"});


@Html.DropDownList("statusList", list , String.Empty, new { disabled = "disabled" })
