I'm trying to create a directory user profile information (based on's Membership Services) with the following needs:

- The data should be in a list format
- It should be searchable so that the output can be limited based on lastname, firstname, etc..
- I want to a button in the first or last column that I can code to open up page to edit the selected user's profile.
- It should be sortable.

I've figured out how to create a DataTable, populate it with Users' profiles and then bind a GridView control to that datatable.

Unless I'm missing something, though the Grid View does not seem very flexible.

Is there a better approach or more suitable controls that I should be using for this (why/why not)?
