One of the new controls in ASP.NET 3.5 that I think will be
very popular is the <asp:ListView> control. The ListView control
supports the data editing, insertion, deleting, paging and sorting semantics of
higher-level controls like the GridView. But - unlike the GridView - it
provides you with complete control over the html markup generated.
The ListView control, when combined with the new Web Designer and rich CSS support in VS 2008, enables
you to build much cleaner HTML UI. Over the next few weeks I'll be
putting together several blog posts that show off how you can use it.
