Data source components offer an alternative to the classic ASP.
NET binding model based on a programmatic and explicit binding between enumerable data and the Data Source property of data-bound controls. NET 2.0, all data-bound controls support data source components for fetching, but only a few of them are designed to use data source components for other operations such as insertion, deletion, and update.
As soon as you exit the wizard your entities are ready to used. You may notice that changes have been made to your Web.config file. Add a new Web Form named Default and make sure it has a code behind file.
Your page with these two control should look like this right now.
Request your page in a browser and make sure it works fine. Instead of dropping a List View control in our page, something most developers do, here we will choose a different approach.
As a developer, you can control any HTML markup that the control outputs, without being bound to any predefined schema such as a form or a grid view. NET, the List View is designed to leverage an external component for paging and sorting.
This component is the Data Pager control added in ASP. The List View is currently the only control aware of the data pager standard interface.
