This article demonstrated how to create an Entity Framework
4 model, use the EntityDataSource control to bind to a GridView control, use
EditItemTemplates to customize editing a record, and also use the validation
controls. Notice there was not one line of code or SQL needed for the entire
project. The controls in Visual Studio 2010 really make it easy to develop web
applications fast and are great for small applications. However, there are
many debates out there as to whether this is a good or a bad thing. I'll let
you decide that for yourself but at least you know the quick and dirty option
exists and works fairly well.
Good luck on your project and happy coding.
