Chapter 6. Using ASP.NET List Controls

I l @ ve RuBoard

As you've discovered in previous chapters, one of the greatest advantages of ASP.NET is the separation of your business logic from presentation markup. Perhaps no other set of controls illustrates this better than the ASP.NET list controls: DropDownList , ListBox , CheckBoxList , and RadioButtonList . The purpose of this chapter is to give you an overview of these four controls and get you started using them in your ASP.NET applications.

In this chapter you will learn:

  • What the properties, methods , and events of ASP.NET list controls are

  • How to databind both the items collection and the selection property of each control

  • How to change the layout and display of these controlss

NOTE

The purpose of this book is to get you up and running quickly with ASP.NET by providing an example-driven discussion of the platform. Therefore, this book cannot adequately cover some of the advanced Object-Oriented Programming (OOP) principles upon which the entire .NET platform was built. Although you don't have to be an OOP expert to start building real-world applications with ASP.NET, I encourage you to explore some of the new OOP features of VB.NET and C# on your own by consulting the other resources listed in this book. If you have extensive experience with other OOP languages such as C++ or Java, you should already be up to speed on these concepts.
