ASP website Forms
Webforms, data collection

Msg#: 4111083 posted 10:46 pm on Apr 6, 2010 (gmt 0)

Hi Everyone,

I am (almost) totally new to ASP.net and have been tasked to create a new site for the company. I'm trying to create a user profile form that adds records directly into an existing DB. Think data collection form that is beyond the standard login fields. From what I gather the gridview, dataview, formview controls won't quite cut it.

To the best of my knowledge Visual Studio does not offer a nifty wizard for ASP.net sites (only for projects and ASP apps). My only thought is to add labels/ textboxes to the form (or master page), point the textboxes to the appropriate source and then create a button that saves the data to the DB. Agreed, or is there any easier method?

I'm not an ASP.NET guru, but I believe those *view controls you mentioned are containers for other controls. They would not be used to collect data as you mentioned. If you want to collect data, what you mentioned sounds reasonable in my opinion. Whether or not it's the best solution, I couldn't tell you.
