Telerik.Web.UI.RadDataForm

Telerik.Web.UI.RadDataForm is designed to give your the freedom to specify
predefined or customized type of layout for the items displayed in
the control and in the same time gives you integrated paging and editing. You can embed various
controls of your choice in RadDataForm's templates and model their
appearance in a custom manner. Thanks to its innovative architecture
Telerik.Web.UI.RadDataForm is extremely fast and generates very little output.
