Backstage coding

Dec 24, 2011 at 12:48 PM

I am coding using VB.NET and attempting to set up a backstage page for table maintenance.

Firstly, the file type of ASCX mean what?   Is this a special naming convention for user controls?

Secondly, it appears that I cannot use regular ASP tags like GridView, etc.   I am new to user controls and not sure exactly what I can or cannot put in the control.

I would appreciate some guidance here.   I really like this concept of web applications and want to make full use of all the controls and features available in OfficeWebUI.
