In this article I will demonstrate the efficiency of using the Generic List. Keep in mind that this is a precursor to the more elegant features of the List<T> but mandatory in understanding its elegance.
About 2 years ago I stumbled upon the little gem known as the Generic List. To be specific; System.Collections.Generic.List. It is my hope after your done reading this series of articles that you will come to stop using the bloated ADO.Net objects and start writing efficient code. Stick with me to find out!
If you read the internet and all of the websites dedicated to Asp.Net you will inevitably read about the wonders of the DataGrid, DataList, and Repeater controls. While each of these has its place, if you are only displaying data there is a much faster and more efficient means to do so.
A collection of resources for web programming. I often spend time at these sites so check them out often.
Miles Davis Says:
You can’t play nothing on modern trumpet that doesn’t come from him, not even modern shit. I can’t even remember a time when he sounded bad playing the trumpet. Never. Not even one time. He had great feeling up in his playing and he always played on the beat. I just loved the way he played and sang. (On Louis Armstrong)
