I have a requirement to use a DetailsView control to display a shedload of data, more than can reasonably be displayed in the available screen real estate.

So, I thought, "I'll use a TabStrip and split the data up". But, and this is where I wanted some input, would the best option be to:
  1. Put multiple DetailsView controls in my control; one per PageView with different sets of TemplateFields in each DetailsView control, or
  2. Try and put a TabStrip/MultiPage control inside a single DetailsView?

I have to admit to having tried neither of the options I just wondered if anyone had had a similar requirement and had some thoughts about which route to take.

TIA,

Hi, just wanted to ask how did you managed to put RadTabStrip inside DetailsView? Because DetailsView doesn't have ItemTemplate like FormView does.

Ok :) Thanx anyway. I was thinking about putting multiple DetailsViews into multiple tab pages, and bind them to the same EntityDataSource. But then again, I don't know how EntityDataSource is gonna behave. If you could just give me a hint, or come accros solution to this problem, please, post it here.
Thanx.
