I'm going to betray my "newbie"-ness here in a big way, but that's alright.
Am getting the hang of displaying data using the FormView, GridView, etc, following Scott Mitchell's excellent tutorial.
But what I need to do now is create a form that doesn't display any records, but simply allows a web page user to enter a new record, validate the data, insert the data in an SQL table as a new record, and display a confirmation to the user (and send an email confirmation).
Is there a tutorial somewhere that can walk me through this? I have the SQL database ready to go, have a dataset and Table Adapter with my insert query all set in my Visual Studio 2010 Web Application Project, have the DataSource established on the page, have the text boxes for the user input and a submit button.
I just need a little guidance on how to tie everything together. Have searched in vain for a step-by-step online somewhere. If you could point me to one, I'd be much obliged.
Or if some saint has the patience to hold my hand and walk me through the final steps here, I'd be eternally grateful.
