Using ASP Application Objects to Create an Admin Page

Aimed at giving you quick access to sophisticated interactivity without having to rely on the various panels that encompass all the objects, application objects are basically predesigned Web components that you can use within your application. Application objects are easy to use; in fact, you already used some of them and may not have even known it. Some of the Application objects that we'll be using include the following:

  • Recordset Launches the Recordset dialog box that you would normally receive when selecting the Recordset server behavior from the Bindings panel.

  • Dynamic Table Enables you to quickly create and format a table complete with bound data from your recordset on-the-fly.

  • Recordset Navigation Bar Inserts First, Last, Previous, and Next pagination server behaviors complete with the Show Region behavior attached.

  • Recordset Navigation Status Displays a status message for the record the user is on while paging.

  • Repeated Region Creates a repeated region for a dynamic table.

  • Master-Detail Page Set Arguably the most widely used application object, the master-detail page set allows a developer to create a low detail page that links to a second more detailed page for a particular record.

  • Record Insertion Form Enables you to quickly build a form, complete with form objects that you specify, that when submitted, inserts into a table within the database.

  • Record Update Form Similar to the Record Insertion Form application objects, the Record Update Form enables you to build a form, complete with bound form objects, that allows your users to modify information within the database.
