This chapter took you on a brief tour through some of the highlights of data binding with Web Forms. It is by no means a complete reference; an entire book could be written to discuss data access with ASP.NET. However, you now have a clearer idea of what is involved in binding to controls using ASP.NET and you can determine what additional information you need, if any.
This chapter showed you the basic binding syntax for simple binding, as well as how to bind to simple list controls like the DataList and Repeater. Then you moved on to see a simple DataGrid binding, and wrapped up the chapter with discussions of parent-child binding with DataGrids and ListBox controls.
