Chapter 8. Working with Data Source and Data-Bound Controls

Chapter 8. Working with Data Source and Data-Bound Controls

In the previous chapter, you learned about using ADO.NET for accessing data in your business applications. ASP.NET also provides a number of server controls that build on top of the features of ADO.NET. These controls simplify the development of data-driven Web applications. They make it easier to build Web pages that access, display, manipulate, and save data. Using these controls can provide development efficiency when building Web-based business applications that rely heavily on data.

This chapter first presents the ASP.NET data source controls. You use these controls to configure access to data that you intend to use on a Web page. A data source can be a relational database, data stored inside of in-memory objects, Extensible Markup Language (XML)-based data, or data you retrieve via language-integrated query engine (LINQ). The second lesson in this chapter demonstrates how you can bind to data to allow users to interact with it. This includes using Web server controls like GridView, Repeater, DetailsView, and many more.
