Can't Use DynamicFormView RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-1425666379 posted

    I'm creating a new Dynamic Data Web Application with a Custom Page. I want to use a FormView on this page and figured that I might get more coolness out of the DynamicFormView control that I see in my Toolbox in VS2008 sp1. But the compiler complains that DynamicFormView doesn't exist in System.Web.Dynamic data even though I can drop it on the form and set properties declaratively.

     What is the obvious thing I'm missing here? I think I have a reference to everything on my box now.

    DynamicFormView was the control relased in the CTP last December, but this was removed from the current release. With the VS2008 SP1, you should use the normal FormView control with a DynamicDataManager and DynamicControls.

    For a sample, see http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc488554.aspx.

    I hope this helps.
