SharePoint Web services - get choice field values Using GetList() method

Below is the code to get the values of a choice field in a sharepoint list . You can save these values into a datatable and can bind the datatable with a Drop-down control.

//get choice field values from sharepoint list
protected void GetDrpDownValuesFromList()
SPWebservice.Lists FMService = new SPWebservice.Lists();
FMService.Credentials = System.Net.CredentialCache.DefaultCredentials;
XmlNode ndLists = FMService.GetList("MyList"); //add list name

XmlDocument doc = new XmlDocument();

XmlNamespaceManager mg = new XmlNamespaceManager(doc.NameTable);
mg.AddNamespace("sp", "");
mg.AddNamespace("z", "#RowsetSchema");
mg.AddNamespace("rs", "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:rowset");
mg.AddNamespace("y", "");
mg.AddNamespace("w", "");
mg.AddNamespace("d", "");

XmlNodeList FieldsInList = doc.SelectNodes("//sp:Field", mg);

foreach (XmlNode Field in FieldsInList)
if (Field.HasChildNodes)
if (Field.Attributes["Name"].Value == "choiceFieldName")
foreach (XmlNode node in Field.ChildNodes)
if (node.HasChildNodes)
foreach (XmlNode Newnode in node.ChildNodes)
_addToDataTable(Newnode.InnerText); // Add node value to datatable
} } } } } } }
