Using Model Binding in ASP.NET Data Controls
ASP.NET Web Forms became popular due to the wide range of data bound controls such as GridView, DetailsView and ListView. The earlier versions of ASP.NET, however, were a bit rigid about how data was bound to these controls. Most of the time developers had to use one or the other data source control (SQL Data Source, Object Data Source, Entity Data Source etc.) to bind data from the underlying data store with the data bound controls. ASP.NET 4.5 provides a flexible alternative to data bind these controls - model binding. Using the new model binding features you can use methods instead of data source controls to perform CRUD operations. This article explains how the new model binding features can be used. You will also learn to use strongly typed data controls.
