Is there anything in particular you are confused about? Here are a few things to consider:
  1. It's a tough question to answer without knowing the specifics of your application.
  2. HTML controls do not have as many features with their web server control counterparts.
  3. HTML controls could be a good idea if you were converting some existing web pages that used html controls.
  4. There are many more web controls to choose from that offer functionality that just cannot be found with html controls. Just have a look at your toolbox in Visual Studio.
  5. Web controls have properties and methods that are much more consistent with the .NET way of doing things.
  6. If you plan on extending controls and customizing information, web server controls are the way to go.
  7. Web controls can be hooked up with validation controls.
If you have any specific concerns then just ask.

For example, I just use some labels to display some information. As you guys said, all I need is to use the html controls?

If that is all you are doing then sure, html controls will be just fine.

if the label is static text, sure.

If you need to set it from the code, then no, use a Web/Asp: control

Web control in web control
Hi,There are two simple web user controls A and B, where B contains A. They just display the bunch of text boxes, so I do not need them even in tool pane. They sit in the same project next to web form.I noticed that web user control put on ASPX page does not appear in code behind, but if I create it with protected keyword and name being exactly the same as id it works fine. I can access such a web control from code behind and see the value assigned in IE. The problem is that the same routine does work for my A web control in B. When I assign the value IE, I keep getting null reference. ...

controlling an object in a web control from the page the web control is placed in

Who uses Web Controls/HTML Controls?
I'm currently making the migration from ColdFusion to and I have a few questions. 1. Does anybody really use the Web/HTML Controls? CF has something similar <cfform> but I never use it because I'm a believer in separating html from application logic/control. And I like being in control of what goes on in my apps. However, I find the Web/HTML Controls interesting. 2. Is there a standard framework that people use to organize their code? I like using MVC (Model, View, Controller) to create true N-tier applications. Just wondering what others use. 3. Is anybody using Flash...

Html controls vs. Web controls
Can someone give me some examples if when it is best to use html controls over web controls and vice versa? Thanks, tdnxxx444 Web controls show up as <asp:class runat=server> (the "asp" may be replaced by other prefixes). They may have a corresponding HTML tag that they represent, but generally they are there to build all the HTML necessary for an idea. For example, something simple like the CheckBox web control still outputs several tags when you View Source: <span><input type=checkbox><label for>. Something like the Calendar control generates an en...
