Vision and Mission,
and Innovation History
The introduction of a data source control in ASP.NET 2.0 left one critical need
unfulfilled – without the ability to support multiple tables, it could not meet
the needs of hierarchical data retrieval presented by sophisticated controls such
Intersoft’s WebGrid and WebTreeView. To overcome this limitation, Intersoft has
pioneered its own data source control: ISDataSource.
In addition to powering Intersoft’s hierarchical data retrieval, support for multiple
tables in ISDataSource translates into easier organization and less work. By binding
tables in one ISDataSource instance, you can change settings either for a single
table, or all tables, greatly reducing both coding and debugging time.
The multiple table support of ISDataSource is used extensively in both WebGrid and
WebScheduler. Both Intersoft products rely heavily on multiple table support to
extend their features. Optimized to support their specific needs, ISDataSource connects
perfectly to Intersoft databound controls such as WebCombo, WebGrid, and WebScheduler.
Simplify operations by creating a single composite object to be passed to the Update,
Insert and Delete methods. Automatically bind generic collections to .NET controls
through an ISDataSource control. Enjoy the extra time on your hands with rapid development
ISDataSource not only supports Intersoft data bound controls, but also extends its
power and flexibility to standard ASP.NET databound server controls, such as GridView
and FormView. The process of binding to the ASP.NET server controls is just as simple
as it is when using the standard .NET data source control.
ISDataSource's advanced caching mechanism boosts performance by using locally cached
data instead of retrieving it from the server. You enjoy granular control over the
extent of caching though settings which affect cache data duration, expiration,
Organized into separate sections to define Schemas, Methods/Tables, and Parameters,
this simple yet powerful tool can make setting up multiple tables for use with an
ISDataSource a breeze. In just a few clicks, you can create all the required definitions
directly from the table schemas and be ready to attach your favorite Intersoft component.
