I am trying to query the UserGroups.asmx web service in SharePoint 2007. I would like to pull group membership information on users, so I am using a DVWP to accomplish this. What I can't seem to figure out though, is how to bind a text box or a dropdown box control to the dataview to filter the data in an ad hoc manner.
I've read this post: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sharepoint2010customization/thread/6e36fc8a-7976-42f5-8961-97d73fb7cf07/?prof=required which is essentially my same issue. But I didn't see a good answer to it.
Also, I am familiar with how to filter a DVWP, I've read the posts on those. My particular issue is how to use, or bind a asp.net control to a SoapDataSource. Every time I try to do this, it only displays the following: "Microsoft.SharePoint.WebControls.XmlDataSourceNodeDescriptor". Why won't it return my data?

The post you refer to is in a 2010 forum and was asked by someone using 2010.
It would be wiser in this pre-2010 forum to refer to articles / threads where the person asking the question has a pre-2010 SP product,
I don't want this thread to go off-topic with discussions of how things work in SP 2010 ...

How do you bind a SoapDataSource, which exposes a web service call (as opposed to a SQL server call), to a control (e.g. a textbox - for a single result or listbox - for multiple results) in a SharePoint web page?

OK, well lets approach this from a different angle:
How do you do this in MOSS? The problem is much the same anyway. I'll quite happily post this again somewhere else if I have to: This question has not, to my knowledge, been answered anywhere for any version of SharePoint! If it is not possible to bind anything to a SoapDataSource in an ASPX page, I think we should be told definitively. It would help me and many others to be able to do this.
I would like to know if anyone from Microsoft can supply this information.For your information, I do develop on MOSS as well as SharePoint 2010 and so I do fit the above criterion as a user of pre-SP2010 products.
