ASP.NET Basics (part 7): Command And Control
Dynamically generate forms using ASP.NET's server controls and Request object.

| Applying The Theory |

Last time out, I gave you a crash course in better software design, by showing you how to abstract parts of your C# code into reusable functions. You've already learned how to add flexibility to your functions by allowing them to accept different arguments, and how to obtain one (or more) return values from them. You also know a little bit more about variable scope, and have a better understanding of how C# treats variables inside and outside functions.

Enough theory then - let's get into something practical. Over the course of this article, I'm going to initiate you into using ASP.NET in your Web development, by showing you how the technology can be used in one of the most common applications of a Web development language - form input. Throughout the following pages, I'm going to devote lots of space to a discussion of how ASP.NET can be used to extract and use data from HTML forms, and how it can be used to programmatically generate forms using so-called "server controls", which let you build everything from simple text fields to drop-downs and check boxes.

How to do Everything with PHP & MySQL
How to do Everything with PHP & MySQL, the best-selling book by Melonfire, explains how to take full advantage of PHP's built-in support for MySQL and link the results of database queries to Web pages. You'll get full details on PHP programming and MySQL database development, and then you'll learn to use these two cutting-edge technologies together. Easy-to-follow sample applications include a PHP online shopping cart, a MySQL order tracking system, and a PHP/MySQL news publishing system.
