Chapter 5. ASP Control Details
Chapter 4 briefly discussed the different types of controls available in ASP.NET. It went into some detail on HTML server controls and gave an introductory example of ASP server controls. While the latter are sometimes also referred to as web server controls, in the context of this book we call them, simply, ASP controls to reflect the syntax used to implement them:
<asp:controlType id="ControlID" runat="server" />
Notice that the control tag always begins with asp:.
This chapter provides a wealth of detail about ASP controls. It discusses the features and properties common to many of these controls and surveys the specific details of all the ASP controls included with the .NET Framework.
