    below is the property which i was define,
    please find the attached screen shots where I am only getting first value of enum property in text box.

     public ColorType Color { get; set; }
     public enum ColorType { Black, Blue, Red, Green, Purple, Gray, Yellow }

    I am using sitefinity version 5.2.

    actually I want property data appear in drop down list when i clicked at usercontrol edit option.

    Hi Suyash,

    You could try to use this code to bind to the DropDownList:

    Array itemValues = System.Enum.GetValues(typeof(ColorType));
    Array itemNames = System.Enum.GetNames(typeof(ColorType));
    for (int i = 0; i <= itemNames.Length - 1 ; i++) {
        ListItem item = new ListItem(itemNames[i], itemValues[i]);

    Kind regards,
