ASP.NET provides a few very rich Web server controls that create form and produce function that would take tons of code in any other environment. But in ASP.NET they can be achieved with a single tag. Chapter 1 touched on the Calendar Web server control; in this section you’ll see that and the AdRotator Web server control, as well.
Anyone who has had to manage banner ads will love ASP.NET’s AdRotator object. This Web server control enables you to deliver and maintain banner ad campaigns, filter what ads are delivered, and control how many times they are delivered, all through the use of a controlling XML file. Table 7.14 lists and describes its properties.
