BLinq - a simple web GUI generator using DLinq as an ORM and ASP.NET 2.0 bound controls as UI building blocks


If you’re into automated generation of data manipulation UI, then you must check out BLinq, written by Polita Paulus of Microsoft, at

In short, it uses DLinq to generate a DAL, and then builds simple ASP.NET pages using GridView and DetailsView Controls (developed by Polita herself), to manipulate all of the tables from the database.

In my opinion, it serves as a great prove of concept for the whole ASP.NET and Linq technologies, as the fastest RAD tool for web application development.

Just build a database, and in an eye Blinq, you have a way to manipulate it through web app.

I find it great. Aren’t you?
