ASP.NET 2.0 enhancements increase productivity in the development of Web applications and improve the infrastructure for creating custom server controls. As in ASP.NET 1.1, server controls, or Webcontrols, are not additions to ASP.NET's infrastructure; they are at the heart of its architecture. Development of custom Webcontrols has not been embraced by all ASP.NET developers, but learn about these new enhancements and you'll be hooked. Understand how you can integrate templates, smart tags, auto formatting, Web resources, and Ajax-based callbacks into your own Webcontrols with ease.
