This code drop is part of a smash and grab series. If you're in a rush, you can just grab this code and insert it into your application, no understanding is required. When you have some time (ya, right), you may want to review the source code.
I recently needed to enter latitude and longitude information into a
GridView control, and so I wrote this ASP.NET 2.0 server control. The top part of the graphic shows the various input formats which you can toggle between using the spinners to the right. The bottom part shows the control in use in a

SmashGrab / Redux series
I have recently started two series of articles here at CodeProject. Smash&Grab is intended as a series of short articles on one specific code technique. Redux is intended as a series of longer articles which attempt to reduce a complicated topic (like
GridView) into its basic constituent parts and show that once you have all the information, it wasn't really that hard after all. To find the Smash&Grab articles, search for the keyword SmashGrab. To find the Redux articles, search for keyword Redux. I welcome any contributions to either series, but please follow the guidelines when submitting articles to either.
