Looking for a beginners tutorial or guide on using GRIDVIEW control with FORMVIEW control

what i want to be able to do is add a gridview control onto the page.. have it display my results

then have a link to take me to another page where they can edit the data if needed

I have a current project im working on that i have a search function on the top part and that value us passed into the GRIDVIEW below it and displays records.. each of those records has a link to a edit page.. since the gridview is merely a small teaser of all the data for the records.. the next page will display ALL fields for that record within a FORMVIEW..

The itemtemplate displays all the data in a nice format.. if its ok.. they leave it alone, if they want to edit they click edit and takes them to the edittemplate which has all the data bound to text boxes and so on.. and they can make updates and submit them..

if this is the wrong way of doing it, then i would like to see a good example of accomplishing this task..

using controlS to control a gridview
This question is probably posted but i did not bother to look at 10,000+ posts so i am sorry. I've seen the tutorial where he builds a dataset and uses a gridview and controls the gridview with the drop down list box. What i am trying to do is to control the gridview with 2 drop down list boxes. First select the Country you life in and then the State. I've looked at the grid view properties but couldn't find where i can add another parameter. Is it possible to control a grid view (or any form of displaying the information) with more than 1 controller? Thank You.  ...

What control do I use (or do I not use a control at all...)
Okay so here's the story so far. I am making a blog to be incorporated into a website. Well, I'm doing the blog from scratch. I'm using MySQL to source all the data via MySQL .NET/Connector. Now while developing the script, I used DataReader and Response.Write to show the blog topics. Now that it has come to put it under a design (I'm using a Master Page for that), I've hit the problem. Response.Write shows all the topics before any of the design elements could be incorporated. So that (more or less) is out of question. So next I looked into the data presentation controls. I looked up GridVi...
