One of the things that maddened ASP developers was coping with pages that mixed code and content: tough to manage, easy to foul up. With ASP.NET, there's an alternative: server controls. These babies let you encapsulate complex user interface functionality in one line of code, calling separate code that reacts to events, works with data and input -- you name it.
ASP.NET doesn't just provide its own server controls: it encourages you to build your own, which all benefit from basic functionality you needn't reinvent. Server controls are powerful stuff -- and Professional ASP.NET Server Controls is the first book to focus entirely on them.
Wrox's author team first introduces ASP.NET's control-based architecture, the classes your controls will inherit from, and the interfaces they may need to implement. Next, you'll walk through rendering server controls (including ASP.NET's powerful new validation controls); event handling; managing state; templated controls and styles; controls that implement data binding; and design-time support. There's a full chapter on deployment (you can XCOPY, or add your control to the Global Assembly Cache); and finally, a start-to-finish case study. Goodbye, spaghetti code -- forever! (Bill Camarda)
