Learning more about C# logic everyday. I needed a dropdown that would display dates in a reverse order so how do you do this.

for (int i = DateTime.Now.Year; i >= 2000; i--)

Simple thanks to the MVP at the forums in MSDN

I am building a dropdown select box for year and want to render the dropdown

in C#

Any help would be great.

if (!this.IsPostBack)
{
for (int i = 2000; i <= DateTime.Now.Year; i++)
{
int intSubtractTerm = 0;
ListItem newListItem = new ListItem();
intYear = DateTime.Now.Year;
intSubtractTerm = intYear - i;
intYear = intYear - intSubtractTerm;
newListItem.Value = intYear.ToString();
newListItem.Text = intYear.ToString();
DropDownListYear.Items.Add(newListItem);
}
}
