Today, we released the ASP.NET 3.5 Extensions Preview, which includes the exciting Dynamic Data feature.
A lot has happened since we released an early version of Dynamic Data Controls in the May ASP.NET Futures release. While it was already an exciting feature, it was not very customizable and was limited to a small set of scenarios.
While this new version preserves the essence of the original, it is also completely different. Not only it addresses the limited customization, but it also brings a lot of new things.
Since most of you are likely new to Dynamic Data, let me start with a quick introduction of what it is about. The core purpose is to make it easy to write powerful and extensible data driven web application. Here are some of the steps involved (not all of them are necessary):
Well, this should be enough for a quick introduction. I'll try to have a screencast available tomorrow, which will run through some of the basic scanerios. I'll then follow up with more specific posts and screencasts that go deeper into specific areas.
