In this chapter, you learned how to create real-world WebPart pages. Such pages include requirements such as personalization as well as a modularized structure through WebParts that enable the user to select exactly the information that should be displayed. You also learned what WebPartManagers, WebPartZones, and WebParts are and what their tasks are.
Then you learned about important advanced features such as connecting WebParts and authorizing WebParts. You also know how to add custom properties to WebParts that will be stored on a per-user or shared basis, and you created custom editors for editing those properties.
The ASP.NET 2.0 WebParts Framework provides you with a huge set of functionality. You never have to implement your own portal framework, as it is already included with the framework. And, as it is part of the .NET Framework, you get this all for free!
