17.8. The Last Word

In this chapter, you considered everything you need to build rich data-bound pages. You took a detailed tour of the GridView and considered its support for formatting, selecting, sorting, paging, using templates, and editing. You also considered the DetailsView and the FormView, which allow you to display and edit individual records. Using these three controls, you can build all-in-one pages that display and edit data, without needing to write pages of ADO.NET code. Best of all, every data control is thoroughly configurable, which means you can tailor it to fit just about any web application.
