How to create web form items dynamically

I have a list item in database, I want to retrive the items, then create a web form, each item has two paralleled textboxes that allow user input budget and explanation, like

List Item -------------- Budget ----- -------------------Explanation

Travel ----------------- 2,500(textbox) -----------------Training Fee(Textbox)
Hardware------------- 1,500(textbox) -----------------PC(textbox)
Software-------------- 700(textbox)--------------------Photoshop(textbox)

List Item will come from database.
How can I do that? (I really want to back to CLASSIC ASP. .NET is so annoying!!!!)

If only thing you need is to retrieve the data and display them on the page then you need to read basic book or tutorial on ADO.NET and databinding.
You can strat with Quick Start tutorial:
Or lookup in Google for tutorials.
And don't give up. Once you start learning you'll never wish again to go back to classic ASP.

Thank you for your response, and especially thank you for your encouragement. 

At least, I think CLASSIC ASP is mora simple thatn ASP.NET in this issue. Let us take a look.
Suppose I got the data from database, then I use the following code
For i = 1 to WhateverQuery.RecordCount
<td><input type="text" name="Budget<%=i%>"></td>
<td><textarea name="Explanation<%=i%>"></textarea>
That is it! I have got the unique NAME for each item.
I am trying ASP.NET right now (Maybe it is not the best way). First, get data from database; second, set couple of PlaceHolder, third, create new LABEL, TEXTBOX like --
For i = 1 to whateverQuery.count
Dim lbli As Label = new Label
Dim newControllbl = FindControl("lblBudget" & i)
lbli.text = i
Dim txti As textbox = new textbox
Dim newControltxt = FindControl("txtBudget" & i)
txti.ID = i
txti.text = i
It works basically. But, I still have problem. First, I have to set PlaceHolder manually according to database record (I am trying to set up it in the above loop). Second, validation.
Please let me know if you have good iead.

Help getting started with a dynamic web form
I'm new to .NET so I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction. I have a form that needs to be dynamically created based on the contents of a XML file. The XML contains data for each 'row' to be created and what type of fields (textbox, custom select box, etc) should be displayed. The number of each type of field will vary from time to time. Using ASP I would have either used XSL to create a form or DOM to walk through the contents of the XML and display/name the proper fields. Using .NET I'm not sure what the proper method is to accomplish my goal. I can use XML c...

Dynamically created controls in web form
Hi there. This is bit of an open ASP.Net (C#) question with regards to dynamically created controls and in particular tabular or panel controls. What I currently have is a web page that creates between 1 and 6  tables, each of which holds specific data about a set of products, each table (or panel, if you want) has a couple of multi-line TextBoxes and a few other controls, all lined up in a set format. The number is determined by the data records returned from a database table. My question is what is a best way to create these tables of data at run time?  Has anybody else had e...

Implementing .Net Form into an web form, can this be done
I am new here, but have been searching for a while, and may not have the correct lingo to find what I am looking for.  I am tasked with implementing a .exe application that was writen vb6 then converted to .net into a new website my team is developing. The idea is to put each of the 3 different forms in this .exe application of 3 different .aspx pages. I have attempted multiple things to get this into the page and even started to just rewrite it as an web form, but even then I can't reuse any of the code since the System.Web.UI.Page doesn't inherit the sa...

How to Create Framed Web Forms in VS.NET?
Hi, I'm using Visual Studio.Net to create my web applications. In design view of a web form on the menubar there is a "Frames" option, but its contents are always disabled. I'm assuming that this option is there to let you create framed pages, right? Why is this option always disabled? Is it a setting in VS.NET that needs to be changed to enable them? How do you create framed pages in this environment? Is writing actual HTML the only way to do this? Any help is much appreciated.
