ASP.NET DataGrid - Custom Paging using the Cache Object - Part II

ASP.NET 2.0 MultiView Control - No more TabStrip / Panel Show-Hide
One of the most ignored or rather not talked about control in ASP.NET 2.0 (no more code name "whidbey") is the MultiView Control.

The solution for this in ASP.NET 1.X versions is to either go for a Tabstrip control or have a Button, Image Button etc., and have Panels which you can show and Hide. Neither of the two were ......
