New List View Features on ASP.NET 3.5

ListView is a new data bound control that is integrated in ASP.Net 3.5 / .NET Framework 3.5. ListView control is similar to GridView, Repeater, and DataList which helps us to display a table of data with awesome additional features.

We can use repeater control whenever we need to display the data in a custom format, as opposed to only tabular view in GridView control. The Repeater control lacks in certain features like edit, update and paging. Using GridView control it is possible to Edit/Update/Delete data but with a big limitation on the layout of the data display. There is no single control available in earlier versions of that accommodates all the above features. The introduction of ASP.Net 3.5 answers this with the new ListView control.

In short, ListView control can be thought as a hybrid between GridView and Repeater control. ListView control gives us more control on the rendered HTML output with edit/update/delete feature. Also, ListView control has a built in support for adding new row, sorting, etc. ASP.NET 3.5 applications are ideal to develop with the latest Visual Studio 2008 applications.
