    ViewBag.Title = "dynamicDropdown";
}

<script src="@Url.Content("~/Scripts/jquery-1.7.1.min.js")" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script src="../../Scripts/jquery-ui-1.8.20.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <link href="../../Content/themes/base/jquery-ui.css" rel="stylesheet" />

<h2>Dynamic Dropdown using Jquery</h2>

<div id="div_cntr">
</div>


<script type="text/javascript">
    $(function () {

        //get the list of items
        var deliverydrpDown = @Html.Raw(Json.Encode(@ViewBag.Fruits));

        var dd1 = document.createElement("select");
        dd1.name = "dynmcdrp_fruits";
        dd1.id = "dynmcdrp_fruits";
           
        $.each(deliverydrpDown,function(index,item)
        {
            //alert(item.Text);
            dd1.options[dd1.length] = new Option(item.Text, item.Text);
        });

       //for dropdown onchange event
        dd1.onchange = function() {
            var drp = document.getElementById('dynmcdrp_fruits');
            var selValue = drp.options[drp.selectedIndex].value;
            customDialog("Information","Selected fruit is:- "+selValue);
        };
        
        //to set the selected item
        //for (var i = 0; i < dd1.options.length; i++) {
        //    if (dd1.options[i].text == text) {
        //        dd1.selectedIndex = i;
        //        break;
        //    }
        //}

        $('#div_cntr').append(dd1);

    });

    //jquery custom dialog box to display  exception
    function customDialog(headerValue, message) {

        //remove the existing div
        var divs = $('body').find('div[id="div_customDialog"]');

        $.each(divs, function (index, divItem) {
            $(divItem).remove();
        });

        //add new div
        $('body').append('<div id="div_customDialog"></div>');

        $('#div_customDialog').html(message);

        $('#div_customDialog').dialog({
            draggable: true,
            modal: true,
            resizable: false,
            width: 'auto',
            title: headerValue,
            minHeight: 75,
            buttons: {
                OK: function () {
                    $(this).dialog('close');
                    $(this).dialog('destroy');
                }
            }
        });

        $('#div_customDialog').dialog('open');
    }

</script>


Controller:-
    public ActionResult dynamicDropdown()
        {

            List<SelectListItem> fruits = new List<SelectListItem>();
            fruits.Add(new SelectListItem { Text = "Apple", Value = "Apple" });
            fruits.Add(new SelectListItem { Text = "Orange", Value = "Orange" });
            fruits.Add(new SelectListItem { Text = "Mango", Value = "Mango" });
            ViewBag.Fruits = fruits;

            return View();
        }
