Example 3 - Data Grids

Sooner or later, it will be necessary for an application to show a list of data. Occassionally, these are short, simple lists, like a list of countries. These lists can be displayed using a number of built-in web controls, such as radio buttons, check boxes, or even selection lists. But beyond these simple mechanisms, things become more complex. Often, an application will need to display complex data that users will wish to view, inspect, and change. In this situation, a more advanced structure is needed, and that advanced structure is called a data grid.
