I have a project where they want me to display data from SQL queries using individual controls instead of data-bound controls like a GridView. Similar to what I used to do with VB
apps where you read a row in a query result and put the various cell values each into their own individual text box for the user to edit, then save after editing.
I assume I have to use code-behind (VB
) to do this? I have the gridview working, but it's not the kind of "look and feel" the users want. They want a desktop application style interface, where they can tab from box to box as they make edits to the data values, then click a save button.
Any tips? Is it really just a matter of using code behind to talk to the database, then addressing the ASP controls from the code behind page to place the values into a text box??
