ASP.NET Data Presentation Controls Essentials: Joydip Kanjilal: Books
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.
