    I've been given several articles that include text and a picture that I need
    to place into a web control. This web control will be displayed on a news
    page. I only want to display one article at a time. At the bottom of each
    article I need to have a previous button (if applicable) and a next button.
    Also, I don't want to always display the same article every time this news
    page is first loaded.

    Does anyone have any suggestions how I can make this functionality work? I
    was thinking data grid, but how would I randomize which article is displayed
    when the control is frist loaded?

    As always, your help is much appreciated

    Just as a side note... if its "random" you can get repeats.....

    Beyond that, you will need to log the articles hit. To get a random
    first one, gather the IDs from the articles and look at the functions in
    the framework for generating a random number....
