I've never used FDO providers for Web neither I've used FDO .NET API,
so I have no idea how to use it to access Shapefiles. But if you are 
looking for general samples about how to read attributes of features 
stored in FDO enabled datasource,
you can find some in the FDO guides (FDO Developers Guide, The Essential 


Here [1] you can find a bunch of very simple samples in form of command 
line  programs written in C++. Among others, there is also sample 
presenting use of FdoISample command and reading attributes.
Perhaps you will find it helpful to translate to the C# .NET.
