RIP ASP .NET DataGrid (You served us well)
So the DataGrid is dead in Whidbey replaced by the GridView Control. While the new DataSource control helps simplify the retrieval and update of data, ASP.NET will also provide new controls that display data. The GridView control is a successor to the ASP.NET DataGrid that adds the ability to automatically handle paging, sorting, editing, and deleting of data. The DetailsView is a data-bound control that renders a single record at a time from its associated data source. Similar to the Form View of a Microsoft Access database, the DetailsView provides paging buttons to navigate between records. Developers can use the DetailsView control in a master-details scenario for updating and inserting new records where the selected record of the master control determines the DetailsView display record.
I guess I will have to start updateing my TechED Session Asp .Net DataGrid Drill Down (Code and Slide Download). I guess TechED Malaysia will be the last time I do this session.
But the REAL question on everyone's mind, will the cute and pink DataGrid Girl change her name???
