Hi

 

I new to web development and have a Listview and a complicated Formview on my page. I have managed to work out the functionality of the controls to display the data. However I need to style the controls and make the styling editable externally. I have look at skins but can not find examples or tutorials of how to do this. All the examples and tutorials seem too basic. Please can you help point in the right direction to simple examples or tutorials to make Listviews and complicated Formviews controls and then style them.

 

A work college says do not bother with Skins just apply CSS to the control when it is rendered. Is this better then using Skins ?   If so should I even be bothering with ASP controls ?

PS I am using VS 2008

Cheers
