Walkthrough: Filtering Table Rows in Dynamic Data

This walkthrough shows how to perform table row filtering in an ASP.NET Dynamic Data Web site. Filtering lets users display subsets of the data that is displayed by Dynamic Data, which you can implement without creating and executing new queries every time that the user selects a new filter value. By default, Dynamic Data includes templates that let you specify filtering for Boolean values and for foreign-key values.

From the walkthrough you can download a complete application that contains the examples described in the topic.

Note, there are some typos in the published in-line code. For the correct version, refer to this location.

How to: Filter Table Rows Using Values from a Parent Table in Dynamic Data

ASP.NET Dynamic Data enables you to use page markup to filter the child table rows to display based on the foreign-key values that the user selects in a parent table, this without requiring knowledge on your part of the data source control and of the database query details. When the user selects a value in the parent table only the child table rows that contain that value are displayed.

How to: Create Table Action Links in Dynamic Data

You can create dynamic hyperlinks that are based on the table actions that are enabled by Dynamic Data. When a user clicks a link, a page is displayed that enables the user to perform the action that is specified by the link, such as listing detail data rows or editing a data item.
