Data-binding in ASP.NET 1.x was strictly read-only: it could automate displaying data in controls, but when it came time to write changes back to the data source, you were stuck with tedious hand-coding.

ASP.NET 2.0 introduces the GridView, FormView and DetailsView controls which allow for automatic two-way data binding. We’ll look at how to use these controls to speed the creation of your presentation layer. We’ll also go beyond the drag-and-drop demos to discuss the limitations of this approach and how to work around them.
