DataGrid/GridView Paging and Sorting Using A DataReader


In conclusion, we have established two very resource and memory friendly approaches in binding a DataGrid and  .NET 2.0's GridView, without sacrificing some of its more common features. Both methods discussed are quick, fast, and not to mention agile, and in the end, when judiciously used, you'll end up with some very scalable apps.

Until next time. Happy .NETing! </>
