Details View control is often used in master/detail scenario with Grid View control. To work with records, first we need to connect Details View control with some data source.

Sql Data Source control above uses a database with Products and Categories tables.
The Details View control allows you to edit, delete, and insert records.
The idea with this sample (based on the Movie Database) is to design a form which has a drop down list for picking a movie category and then a subform (which appears only once a category has been selected) that contains the movie data for all movies with the selected category.

For example, you might want to let the user pick from the different movie categories (action, comedy or drama) and then let them iterate through only that subset of the Movie Database.
