I'm drawing a blank on how I should proceed with the final steps in completing my website. I guess to sum it up is I would essentially like to let the users be able to submit something that shows up on the home page and stays there (this being text that they've entered in a textbox).
I was originally going to do this through an arraylist in VB but my instructor said that it would be pretty nasty using an AL because I would have to code around the fact that I'm not going to know every specific ID that is being created since the controls would be created dynamically.
Then he mentioned just having them saved to a database and then running a stored procedure that would cycle through the saved items and have them displayed through a data view control.
What do you guys think would be the best, and simplest, way to make this happen?
Here is the run-down: I have 2 textboxes and a button. The first textbox is the title of what the user is writing and the other is the actual story. When the button is clicked I want it to take what was written in those 2 boxes and then make them appear in newly created labels (since it will be read only) and stay after post back.
I'm not asking for code as that would really defeat the purpose of me trying to learn how to do it and do it correctly but more or less just some suggestions on how to do it correctly.
