I am just getting in ASP.net having come from a PHP background in terms of web dev. One thing I did alot of in PHP was creating a table which was a list of Request i.e The Table consisted of a Name, Email and Edit Column. The information was pulled from the database and populated. The edit column was a link field which appended the Row ID to the URL and posted the user to this url.
At this URL i.e. www.mydomain.com?uid=134 the code would go away and look for entry 134 in the db (Using PK). And return the data so that it could be edited in a form.
I have been toying with the GridView, but I seem to have to break it to make it work basically, so I wondered if someone could suggest a solution, or point me to a tutorial which may do similar to what I want. I am not overly keen on the Databound stuff as most of the information is pulled directly from Classes. But I am open to having my mind changed if I can see advantages.
Any help / advice would be great.
