repeat region

I've designed my webpage with the following layout:

product 1    Product 2


How can I setup a repeat region so that both products are next to each other? everytime I try I end up with:

Product 1   Product
Product 2   Product
Product 3   Product
Product 4   Product

I need something like:

Product 1   Product 2
Product 3   Product 4
Product 5   Product 6
Product 7   Product 8


is this possible?? :(

hi,

a fast way i can think of is to do 2 seperate tables with 2 seperate recordsets..

this is a Fast way .....

odd in one Recordset evens in the other....

will be better ways but this would be a quick fix and not to complex...

gabss I have to disagree with you, you are saying double the Page Load time and resources. if you want it to act as a quick fix maybe it will for you.

any experience with asp?
if yes then you can use the MOD operator

set up a variable before the LOOP

j = 1

then in the LOOP do this

if j MOD 2 = 1 then
"</td><td>"
j = j+1
next

so, we defined a variable and then we increasing the value of that variable everytime it loops through the records, MOd function will take care of the MATH, if j is divided by 2 then Close the Table Cell and OPEN the new CELL, so you might have to play with HTML a little but.

Let me know if you ned help.

I agree with you gabss, we are dealing with DW, But sometimes we can not do everything and count on Editiors:). I am sure you had that experience as well.

hi,
try this, suppose that you have a recordset RS from your database;
first you define your looper:
***********************************************
<%
Dim HLooper1__numRows
HLooper1__numRows = -2
Dim HLooper1__index
HLooper1__index = 0
RS_numRows = RS_numRows + HLooper1__numRows
%>
***********************************************
and now you just put your table with the recordset fields:
***********************************************
<table>
  <%
startrw = 0
endrw = HLooper1__index
numberColumns = 2
numrows = -1
while((numrows <> 0) AND (Not RS.EOF))
      startrw = endrw + 1
      endrw = endrw + numberColumns
 %>
  <tr align="center" valign="top">
    <%
While ((startrw <= endrw) AND (Not RS.EOF))
%>
    <td> <%=(RS.Fields.Item("Product").Value)%> </td>
    <%
      startrw = startrw + 1
      RS.MoveNext()
      Wend
      %>
  </tr>
  <%
 numrows=numrows-1
 Wend
 %>
</table>
***********************************************
if you want more simple, try to get the Horizontal Looper Extensions for DW from MM website

hope helpe you,
