New to ASP.NET and C#, but seasoned database developer. What's the best way to pass query results from the C# layer to the presentation layer (ASP.NET)? Assuming an unknown # of rows and potential column additions on the fly (on the database side).

Thanks in advance!

I use a DataTable for most everything. Easy to bind to a GridView and many other controls. Easy to transform columns.

When passing rows to an ASP.NET control you only need worry about overloading  the web page (too much data/slow render times).
