Data Source Web Server Controls

Data-bound Web server controls can be bound to a data source control to make it easy to display and modify data in an ASP.NET Web application. Data-bound Web server controls are composite controls that combine other ASP.NET Web controls into a single layout, such as Label and TextBox controls.

The topics in this section provide information about the built-in data source controls in ASP.NET and how to use them to connect to data sources.

For information about the declarative syntax of Web server controls, see Web Server Control Syntax.
