Using fields with the GridView controlThe GridView control is used to render an HTML table containing a list of data items. However, when the GridView controls renders its columns automatically, control over column formatting is lost. To maintain control over column formatting, following column field elements are used. Using these elements we can display DropDownLists or HyperLinks or Images in GridView columns.
Note that these are the only fields which we can use in a GridView control.
