Microsoft® ASP.NET is the next generation technology for Web application development. It takes the best from Active Server Pages (ASP) as well as the rich services and features provided by the Common Language Runtime (CLR) and add many new features. The result is a robust, scalable, and fast Web development experience that will give you great flexibility with little coding.
Web Forms are the heart and soul of ASP.NET. Web Forms are the User Interface (UI) elements that give your Web applications their look and feel. Web Forms are similar to Windows Forms in that they provide properties, methods, and events for the controls that are placed onto them. However, these UI elements render themselves in the appropriate markup language required by the request, e.g. HTML. If you use Microsoft Visual Studio® .NET, you will also get the familiar drag-and-drop interface used to create your UI for your Web application.Web Forms are made up of two components: the visual portion (the ASPX file), and the code behind the form, which resides in a separate class file.
