ASP.Net Panels: Good? Bad?
Hi, I'm just curious as to how others are using Panels. I read a quick article on how one person used it in a wizard framework. Each panel represented a page... and at the end all the data was accessible. That sounds great.
I tend to do this a lot, but I'm pretty sure that the overwhelming majority of people who look at my ASP.NET pages are using broadband (and we don't get anywhere near enough traffic to make reducing bandwidth use on our end important), so I'm not hugely sensitive to bandwidth issues.
A Panel is a <div>. So I guess they're good :-). Turn off ViewState using:
I prefer using placeholder because when I try using panel it works fine but I could not see that in design mode in Dreamweaver. But with placeholder control, I was able to see it visually. It maybe due to the way Dreamweaver handle these controls.
