"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

That's nice. What's the question, though?

It will be difficult to populate the controls asynchronously.  In order to populate any aspx control, you must make a round trip from the client back to the server.   Once you have the data for the control, you must populate the control and refresh the client's browser.

Certainly you could do this, but I think it would be easier and more efficient to populate all of the controls at once instead of refreshing the client's browser 4 or 5 times.

Looks like I'll have to perform some testing, because I also have multiple data sources on different platforms, which semi-rules-out batch queries, although I could do cross-server queries.
