    ViewData["feedback_for"] = new SelectList(allfeedbacks, "feedbackId", "feedbackName", selectedvalue);

    At least in MVC2.

    I had a problem though wich disappeared when i gave the dropdown the same name as the key. Ie.

    <%=Html.DropDownList("feedbackId", ViewData["feedback_for"] as SelectList, "--Select--", new { @class = "inputtext1" })%>
