A new article is up online “Build an RSS DataList Control in ASP.NET“.

Learn how to create a server control based on the DataList to provide a self-contained and manageable way of consuming RSS feeds within your ASP.NET applications with this step-by-step tutorial.

One of the challenges of writing such a control is always how the deal with the multitude of different syndication formats that exist. I noticed that many articles that have appeared on consuming feeds only seemed to concentrate on one feed format, instead of producing an extendible way of supporting many formats. In this way, the article highlights how to use XSLT to support both the consumtion of RSS and RDF feeds.

Hope you like :)
