The ListView is a sort of hybrid between a DataGrid and Repeater that
combines the free form templating of the Repeater with the editing
features of the data grid. It looks interesting because it basically
allows you much more control over the layout than a DataGrid does while
still giving you many of the more advanced features of the data grid.
The ListView doesn't support paging natively, so the DataPager serves
as an external control to provide paging features. The advantage of a
separate control is that it gives you much more control about what the
pager looks like and where it can be placed on the page - anywhere
basically. The Pager is essentially an extender control that extends
the ListView with paging capabilities.

The ASP.NET Wiki was started by Scott Hanselman in February of 2008. The idea is that folks spend a lot of time trolling the blogs,
live-searching for answers to common "How To" questions. There's piles of fantastic community-created and MSFT-created content out there, but if it's not found by a search engine and the right combination of keywords, it's often lost.
The ASP.NET Wiki articles moved to CodeProject in October 2013 and will live on, loved, protected and updated by the community.
