User Interfaces and Server Controls
In Chapter 2, we examined the architecture and purpose of web forms, and discussed how they improve the concept of a web page. You began to see how, in combination with the IDE provided by VS .NET, ASP.NET’s server (or server-side) controls can transform web page design into the drag-and-drop ballet that our colleagues in the Windows desktop programming department have enjoyed for so long. The way that server controls work is ingenious. While you’re designing your web application, they behave like any other controls, allowing you to position them and set their properties through the familiar Properties browser. At runtime, they generate the HTML code necessary to render themselves identically in web browsers, using nothing but standard HTML elements and possibly client-side scripts if needed.
