Adds a "selected" attribute to an <option> if its Value (if non-null) or Text matches the first non-null value found in: the ModelState entry with full name, or the expression evaluated against Model. See NameFor<TResult>(Expression<Func<TModel,TResult>>) for more information about a "full name".

expression
Expression<Func<TModel,TResult>>

An expression to be evaluated against the current model.

selectList
IEnumerable<SelectListItem>

A collection of SelectListItem objects used to populate the <select> element with <optgroup> and <option> elements. If null, uses the ViewData entry with full name and that entry must be a collection of SelectListItem objects.

optionLabel
String String String
