I am developing a type of portal web app. I have a question about getting and using data on my pages. Each portal can customize each of the modules with their own header and footer text. What is the best way for me to get that data. I only need to get a single row from a the dataset and I need to use one column at the top of the page for the header and one other column for the footer. I have seen alot of samples using the datagrid, the datalist and the repeater. But the main content from the page will be a user control. So I can&#039;t just use the header and footer templates of the data controls. At least, I don&#039;t think I can. So, can someone help by pointing me in the right direction? <BR><BR>I hope that made sense. Thanks.
