Post your question to a community of 469,572 developers. It's quick & easy.

Recommendation for CRUD functionality?

After being spoiled by Ruby on Rails, I'm seeking a similar rough
implementation in ASP.NET 2.0. I don't want a half-baked solution like Castle
on Rails.

I assumed it would be as easy as defining a SqlDataSource, dropping a
GridView on the page, and enabling Edit and Delete. Unfortunately, it doesn't
work. The table displays properly (for reading and editing), but clicking
both 'Edit' or 'Delete' does nothing. It chokes with an error message if the
source table contains TEXT fields.

Are there additional steps involved in making this work? Is there a better
approach?

Thank you.
