Data Controls In ASP.NET

data - Copy

In our daily routine we do lot of spends. But at the end we make reports of all that spends. Like, in my family my mother has the responsibility of making the report of the monthly expenses and then comparing it with the monthly income of the family so that we can analyze our economic condition and can control our extravagant expenses for using it as our future savings. But she does it in manual form. If I talk about small scale organization they keep their records in excel file where they can analyze their Profit and losses easily. But when we talk about the large scale organizations, they can’t do it in manual form or in the excel file. That’s why they develop website for their organization where they keep, analyze and modify the data on large scale using controls known as data controls. Today, I tried to introduce you with those data control which .net developer generally used in their websites.

One of the important goals of the language is code minimization. Data controls play an important role in this purpose. Data controls used to display the records in the form of reports.

Some of the Data controls are:

  1. Repeater data control
  2. Detailsview data control
