Chapter 31. Web Forms Data Binding
This section of the book is focused entirely on ADO.NET and dealing with data in various forms. Data binding is a very broad topic, especially when you are talking about data binding within the .NET Framework.
Both Windows Forms and Web Forms (ASP.NET) have completely unique implementations of data binding. Rather than this being a hindrance to developers, it is actually very helpful. The reason for the difference is that web applications have different data binding needs than Windows applications, and the data binding mechanisms supplied for each application type are optimized for that.
ASP.NET data binding is a lengthy subject that we can't provide complete coverage for in a chapter of this size in a book this size. However, this chapter aims to provide a good summary of the code and design involved in binding your data to ASP.NET controls.
