    Hi Mallik,

    have a look at the Using ASP.NET Dynamic Data MSDN help topic. It contains plenty of walkthroughs to get you started with the basics of Dynamic Data. I would also recommend Stephen Naughton's blog, which has a lot of samples and solutions to common issues.

    I don't have a ready solution for you, but you could try defining something like a TabAttribute that takes in a string parameter that will contain the tab's name. Then you can annotate each property with that attribute, where properties with the same value for the tab name will be placed in the same tab.

    <STRIKE>Then in your page template you will need to declare a </STRIKE><STRIKE>MultiView</STRIKE><STRIKE> (or a similar 3rd party control), and programatically in the code behind populate each of the views with the right set of DynamicControls for each column.</STRIKE>

    If you are familiar with the AJAX Control Toolkit, you could also try using the TabsContainer to create your set of tabs. The advantage here over the MultiView approach would be that switching tabs would not cause a postback.

    Edit: Didn't notice you were asking about AJAX
