C # - Drop a list in a drop-down list

advertisements
List<String> nameList = new List<String>();
DropDownList ddl = new DropDownList();

List is populated here, then sorted:

nameList.Sort();

Now I need to drop it into the dropdownlist, which is where I'm having issues (using foreach):

foreach (string name in nameList){
    ddl.Items.Add(new ListItem(nameList[name].ToString()));
}

No workie - any suggestions? It's giving me compile errors:

Error - The best overloaded method match for 'System.Collections.Generic.List<string>.this[int]' has some invalid arguments 

Error - Argument '1': cannot convert from 'string' to 'int'


Replace this:

 ddl.Items.Add(new ListItem(nameList[name].ToString()));

with this:

 ddl.Items.Add(new ListItem(name));

Done like dinner.
