I just created a small demo ASP .NET 4.0 Web Application, it uses:

– ASP .NET 4.0

– Ajax

– Declarative DataBinding using a EntityDataSource

– DetailsView (master – details view, by using a RadGrid and a DetailsView)

– Entity Framework 4.0

– Masterpage and contentpages

– Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 RTM sample database AdventureWorks

– Stylesheet for the master page and per contentpage 1 styelsheet

– Telerik RadGrid

 

Screendump Master View (ProductCategoryOverview)

When you click on the “Edit” link a new page will be shown (ProductCategoryDetails.aspx)

 

Screendump Detials View (ProductCategoryDetails.aspx)
