Default Data view web part

Hi all

I am fairly new to sharepoint development and I have recently created a data view web part which gets its data from a list.

On my web part page I have created a connection between 2 web parts using date as the connection. The data view web part displays a document with its date. The other web part is a menu that displays the entire group of documents by date.

The user can then navigate through the available documents using the menu web part that lists the documents by date. Depending on which date the user selects then a different document will be displayed in the other webpart on the page.

The problem I have is that since I created the data view web part new documents have been created and when the user opens the page the very recent document does not display. It always reverts to the document that was the latest document at the time I created the data view web part. So on that day if it was 25/01/2010 no matter if there is an entry in the list for today and no matter that the menu web part displays that document date as a choice to select, the other web part that displays the documents that was created using a data view web part its still displaying the 25/01/2010 document.

Does anyone know how to make sure the latest document is always displayed in the data view web part?

Default How to pass data from one webpart to another webpart in sharepoint?

In certain situation we need to pass data from webpart to another webpart present in the same site. To implement the connection functionality between WebParts, we should create an Interface .This interface will be implemented by both the provider and consumer classes.

Then we will use the ConnectionProvider and ConnectionConsumer attribute to make the connection between the two webpart.

1. Interface :

public interface Test
string Name { get; set; }

2. The provider class :

public class Provider : WebPart, Test
TextBox tb = new TextBox();
Button btn = new Button();
string _Name = "";

public string Name
get{return _Name;}
set{_Name = value;}
