datalist, datagrid or repeater

in asp.net, visual studio 2005 provides you with 3 controls to view data from a source.. all three controls are populated by using a datasource (which can be a database, xml, odbc sources..) by using the databind() method.

1. repeater is the basic of all the three

2. datagrid is easy to use. u can connect to a datasource and view a display in just 2 lines of code.. but there are limitations on specifying the display of the DataGrid’s data

3. datalist is the most flexible.. u can specify a header, footer, seperator, edititem and alternatingitem templates.. u can also specify the layout (vertical or horizontal) and the number of columns.. really cool..
