I have now successfully connected to a database and displayed the results in a datagrid... what other controls can i use besides this? is there a definitive list somewhere that i can use as a reference? I don't want a tutorial just a document that sets out each control and how i use it... preferably with an example...

can you help

    why don't you just use the combination toolbox, help and the objectbrowser from visual studio.

    the toolbox shows all the common controls you can use on a form

    i am not using Visual Studio - i am using WebMatrix

    and when i drag a label onto the page i can't then get it to display the data from my dataset - so i need a resource that will tell me how to do this for each control

    DataList and Repeater are similar to the DataGrid, except they do not support paging
