help! need advice on best way to do database driven add/edit/search type web forms...

Thanks to the lovely folks on this form, and way too much time.. I have now filled up my SQL tables from my old access tables, i have created a form that hooks into the database and pulls fields out to populate drop down boxes and have little red * that show up if a field isn't filled in...

my method:
create new form ->pull over listbox - connect to datasource to fill up listbox w/ topics... repeat several times -> pull over input text boxes -->drag over Submit button-->drag over 'RequiredFieldValidator' and set it to the list boxes....

1. (in VisWebDeveloper) input boxes do not show up in "control to Validate" (they are not hooked into db)
2. (up on the web) after required fields are filled in, submit does nothing --- i dont know how to specify "after validation"
3.i have 4 listboxes that are all being populated by the same table -- Topics ... each one has it's own SqlDataSource picking out rows with specific topic categories... should i be creating one master query and just separating to topic categories in some other property field?

i got a bit screwed up because i didn't specify code separate than the file so i'm trying to sort out the difference... don't know if that matters...?

Any input on the above would be Fantastic!!

Otherwise - what I really need is some direction!
seems to be so so many options on how to do stuff... I can't figure out if I'm doing combinations of 2 different "styles" of programming... Like should I be doing data grid->validate->insert OR

What do you all recommend for the below things I need to do? (3 word answers are ok)

Entry Form -->after all required fields are filled in -submit creates inset Query --data going into 3 separate tables. email is sent that entry was posted. 

Edit Form -->edit above info (in 3 tables) but only limited fields can be changed

Help! How to add a standard web control to a web form?
I have just created a web application using Visual Studio .NET 2008. I opened the Default.aspx in design view, but I noticed that if I drag any control under the standard control tab to the web form, the cursor changes to the shape ( a circle with a line across to it ) that tells me that I cannot do that.  Why? Did I miss something?  It seems this is the very basic thing people will do. Please help!     It could be because you designer view is out of sync with you source view. Try right clicking into your design and selected 'Refresh...

How to Make Web Forms from other Web Forms
In putting together an ASP.NET application for a biz application, we have come to the point where there are three different types of basic forms which have, for the most part, been perfected. Now its is a matter of cloning those forms for various uses and modifying or adding code to suit the particular need. Copy and paste works OK, but there is a lot of changing of certain words, etc. Is there a way in ASP.NET to take these basic forms, turn them into classes or templates, create forms from them, then add or overwrite code? ? (Anybody who is a Vis Fox Pro programmer would know imme...

Need Windows Form to Retrieve Information From Web Form
I have a cash and carry web site that customers can order products, the next day come in to the company to pay and pickup. I would like to create a windows application for the company to do two things: 1. download all the orders from the day before 2. upload price changes, product changes, category changes I've search the internet and forums and the only thing I can find that I think would actually link these two together would be a web service.

Need HELP with adding a System.Windows.Forms control to web form!
Howdy folks. I'm in need of some help. I wanted to add a nifty little Control I made for a Windows Form to an ASP.NET page. Now I went and saw Microsoft's quickstart tutorial, and followed the example... You know, compile it to .dll... blah, blah, blah, then use the <OBJECT> tag to insert it into the page. Well, I did all that... the control downloads... but I can't see a thing! :'( For example, here's some code ~ using System; using System.Windows.Forms; using System.Drawing; using System.Reflection; [assembly:AssemblyVersion("")] ...

Web Form vs. Web Content Form
If you don't mind, I would like to know what is the difference between those two items, when I go to add a new item I see both of those and I don't know what the difference is.  A content form is for use with a masterpage. A web form is a standalone web page. If you select web content form, you will then have to specify a masterpage for it. and what is a master page used for?  Hi, a master page is used to give a constant look and theme to a site, without having to duplicate code. So basically you can put your header, menu, nav and footer on a master page. Then a...

Web Form embedded in another Web Form
Hi,  I have programmed a Web Form which acts like a scientific calculator. I would like to embedd this calculator in the upper left hand corner of another accounting Web Form. I don't want to host the calculator on the same server as the accounting page. I.e. I want them to have distinct URLs. Classically, I would do this using frames, but is there a better way using ASP? Is there some sort of Panel which can display the webpage at a specific URL which I can just drag onto my accounting Web Form? Thanks,  P1000   Frames are the only way to embed a webform inside ano...

calling a web form from another web form
I would like to know what is the best way to open a web form from another web form. I would like to call it from a button control. Thanks Well, if I've grasped your question right, there are many methods to do that: 1)Response.Redirect > To navigate to another page from code and is equal to clicking a hyperlink. I suggest this as I think it's closer to your question. 2)Server.Transfer > This ends the current web form and begins a new web form. It's usable when you want to pass some variables i.e (Label1.Text) to the next immediate page. It's not safe though and not used to send p...
