    Many years ago I developed a web site in 1.1. Then I switched
    to a database position.

    Now, for job reasons, I have to go back to programming in ASP.NET. I
    would use framework 4.0.

    My web application in 1.1 used a lot of datagrid controls. I
    suppose that datagid control is now deprecated. What would be the new
    better control that replaces datagrid in framework 4.0?

    I would say GridView.

    Also note that besides ASP.NET Web Forms now you can also choose

    Thanks for your opinion.

    I heard that learning MVC is more difficult than web forms, do you
    think so?

    No. Especially not if you have experience with a PHP/Java/Ruby/Python
    MVC web framework.

    Yes, it has a learning curve. Once u get adjusted with it, you will have a better architecture to work with.
