Creating a Master-detail page


In this article I'll show you have you can quite easily make a master-detail page by nesting repeater controls. The data will be taken from the Northwind database, and the two tables we are going to use are 'Categories' and 'Products'.

First off we need to layout our plan, for how we're going to accomplish making this page:

What we need are the following:

  • A Repeater control for the 'Categories' table.
  • A Repeater control for the 'Products' table.
  • We also need a relationship between the two tables.
