In this example, we will see how to make use of FormView Control of ‘Asp.Net to retrieve the data from the database. We will use SQLDataSource Control to supply the data for it. We will also look at modifying its Templates. This Control allows us to place the data-bound controls wherever we want. It is just like designing the form for calculating the Electricity Bill based on unit consumption. Now think of getting the table columns from the database and placing that freely on the web page wherever we want. This is achieved by the FormView Control.
In this Example, we will see the usage of the ObjectDataSource Control. We will create a web page with a GridView Control and link that control to the ObjectDataSource control. The user will perform data handling through the GridView control. The GridView intern uses the ObjectDataSource to delete or change a record.
The Web.config file supplies the Website settings required for the ASP.Net web sites. These settings are like connection strings, how many users allowed, etc. Sometimes the situation arises where we need to add or remove the configuration settings without re-starting the server. This is to avoid website’s down-time. In this article, we will see a demo of how to change web config file when the site is running. Imagine that web admin of the site will access the page which we will create in this example. The goal is to add an extra web setting dynamically, and in the meantime, the server must function as usual with no re-start.
Web configuration (Web Config) files are important for all the ASP.net hosted websites. Every application requires settings that tells the application how it should behave. Also, it will be handy to use as all the settings go in one place and if somebody wants to change some settings, they know this one stop place. What if we don’t use these Web Config files? We should do it through the code. Now we will think of a situation of 100 settings for a website. If it is done in the code, anyone requires configuration change out of these 100, first need to search and pinpoint the piece of code that requires the changes. Then they should compile the binaries of the website and re-launch it. This requires a website maintenance window & during that time the website will be down. The ‘Web Config’ files avoid rebuilding the websites assemblies and keeps...
In this Example, we will read employee information from SQL Server and display that in the ASP.Net Web Page using SqlCommand and SqlDataReader.
