Bound controls vs. Unbound Controls
Im doing this VB.NET tutorial that uses bound controls for a database application and find it quite easy to use and it seems to have quite a few features....I remember when programming in VB6 I was always told to stick to RecordSet manipulaton with unbound controls and to stay away from bound controls because they were supposedly fr the non-serious project\programmer and that bound controls offered more power and control as compared to unbound controls....so
a)When shd I use bound controls vs. Unbound Controls ?
b) What extra powers does rs manipulation with unbound controls provide ??
c) How is database programming done in the real world (professional applications)...in this context ?

I'm not sure if things have changed in .Net tho.
