The last lesson presents the new Dynamic Data features of ASP.NET that allow you to easily create websites for working with the create, read, update, and delete (CRUD) operations of an entire data model that exists as either a Data Context (such as LINQ to SQL) or an Object Context (such as LINQ to Entities).
NET that allow you to easily create websites for working with the CRUD operations of an entire data model that exists as either a Data Context (such as LINQ to SQL) or an Object Context (such as LINQ to Entities). NET provides several server controls that build on top of the features of Microsoft ADO. These controls simplify the development of data-driven websites.
When optimizing for these considerations, you might find that building data-bound applications by using the server controls in ASP.
Remember, there’s a script file in the control that should open automatically (if it doesn’t, click the gray arrow on the upper-right corner of the control or right-click the control and choose Show Smart Tag), check all the available check boxes, shown in Figure 13-4.

You can move to another page in the grid by clicking the numbers at the bottom. Click the Edit link for one of the genres, change the name in the text box that has appeared, and click the Update link.
The You didn’t manually write any code to interact with the database in this exercise, but you got a lot of functionality simply by dragging and dropping a database table.
Can you please add it to the solution or should I download it separately? I'll update the article text when I get a chance to include it, thanks for pointing this out.
