Is the datagrid the only control that can be used for modifying data?

    I have a form that has one record with 22 fields. A grid is not the answer,
    either several small tables or combinations of textboxes and labels, so the
    user can edit all the editable fields then click on Save. I cannot use a
    grid because then it scrolls across the screen forever and ever.

    So my questions are: How would I use a repeater to allow editable data? or
    how can I use textboxes to get data in and out?

    In v1.1 you typically have to write a page with 22 differtent controls and
    then write all the code to go back and forth from your back end data store.
    In v2.0 there's a control called a DetailsView that automates this.
