Here is a GREAT quick read on ASP.NET Data Controls for you.

PACKT is not one of the “big” publishing companies, which can be a good thing because that often publish books on specific topics that are left un-covered by the usual suspects. One of their slogans is “Community Experience Distilled” which I think really nails them.

This book is spans about 240 pages exclusivly on ASP.NET Data Presentation controls.

It covers things like …

  • Data Binding
  • Repeater Control
  • List Controls
  • Data Grid
  • Grid View
  • Form View
  • Detail View

Bets of all it contains coverage of both 2.0 and 3.5 concepts like LINQ, the new 3.5 ListView & DataPager controls and using VS 2008.
