20.8. Case Study: Database-Driven ASP.NET Guestbook

Many websites allow users to provide feedback about the website in a guestbook. Typically, users click a link on the website’s home page to request the guestbook page. This page usually consists of a form that contains fields for the user’s name, e-mail address, message/feedback and so on. Data submitted on the guestbook form is then stored in a database located on the server.

In this section, we create a guestbook Web Form application. The GUI (Fig. 20.31) contains a GridView data control, which displays all the entries in the guestbook in tabular format. This control is located in the Toolbox’s Data section. We explain how to create and configure this data control shortly. The GridView displays abc in Design mode to indicate data that will be retrieved from a data source at runtime. You’ll learn how to create and configure the GridView shortly.
