I'm new to .NET and need help with the following..

I am using a Repeater to display the results of a zipcode locator, I would like to insert the results of a function call, with the argument coming from the result set, but cannot get it working..any help is appreciated. I'm using VB

<tr><td align=right><font color=blue><%# myFunctionCall(Container.DataItem("value"))%> miles</font></td></tr>

Thanks

I think I may have figure this out, but I am still open to suggestions on the following...

<td><%# distance(lat1, lon1, DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "lat").ToString(), DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "lng"), "M") %> miles</td></tr>

the best would be to use the following:

<tr><td align=right><asp:Label id="mylabel" Text='<%myFunctionCall(DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"value"))%>' runat="server" /></td></tr>

you can use any stylesheet or set the attributes of your label to match your display needs
