I am taking some line item information from the user pertaining to driving violations.(Date of Conviction,Offense,Location, Type of Vehicle Operated) I have to make it so the user can enter pretty much an unlimited amount of line items. Does anybody have any suggestions or examples on the best way to accomplish this in C# and asp.net. Any help or advice would be most appreciated.

are you writing that to the file or entering into a data structure.

If data struucture, try ArrayList

It will be written to data. Yes , I need to figure this out as well. However, I guess I was thinking more about the user interface first. To your point, whatever I choose I will most likely end up iterating through something. However, I'm not sure if I'm even that far just yet.

A multine textbox should be suffice for you.

I used an EssentialObjects data grid that lets me add as many items as possible. It also keeps a list of added, edited , deleted items on the client before commiting to the database with a postback
