Why MVC?

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 03, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

In a few months we will finish our current project which has been going on since March and start a new one.  A number of people are talking about MVC.  I have sat through several introductory demos of 90 minutes or so including a live Hanselman appearance and none of them get further than showing a few textboxes on the screen. At least Hanselman was entertaining.

My current project has two relatively complex webforms with heavy use of AjaxControlToolkit, mulitiple update panels for partial postbacks, Modal Popup extenders which make WCF calls through JQuery Posts and TabControls with several nested tabs containing GridViews with lists of contacts, child items and attached documents from a SharePoint site.

I trust the answer is available somewhere, but I have not seen anything yet telling me why I should abandon these controls and go with MVC. How is building tables element by element easier than saying "GridView1.DataBind()"? Not to mention the JavaScript (Excuse me...  JQuery) required to respond to its events.

I have spent a great deal of time learning to build advanced AJAX pages. Does someone have an advanced demo showing me how my life would be changed forever if I went with MVC?
