This should probably be an easy question for most of you. I'm brand new to .net but not to asp.
Backend - SQL2000
Language = VB
I'm doing your basic Search - View Search Results / use hyperlink to view the details of a single record so that I can update said record.
I'll describe it in a 3 file approach:
search.aspx - > SearchResults.aspx (many records) -> Record Detail.aspx (retrieved via hyperlink on SearchResults.aspx)
The problem I'm having is that every example I've read or watched for this type of Update uses a Grid View or DetailsView grid and I don't want to be stuck in a grid. I want to have control over where I place textboxes, dropdowns, checkboxes etc... I would like absolute control if possible. I was able to do this in .asp with tables etc...
What is the best method for displaying record Details (1 record in view) in a way which I can have some control on how they are displayed? For example, I don't want any of the template / grid style views.
Can anyone point me to an example or a method for displaying the cell information in a way which I can manipulate the placement of my fields?
I know, probably a very easy answer, but I just haven't come across it!
