I have a repeater that is loaded with a sql data reader in my start page. One of the fields I need is the price of the product and when I use the repeater, I can only access the data via <%#Container.DataItem("dblBasePrice") %>

 Is there a tag in ASP that I can put between the container.dataitem to format the number as currency?

Thanks,
LR

You can use syntax

<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "dblBasePrice", "{0:C}") %>

You could do either of these:

<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "dblBasePrice", "{0:c}") %>

or this (faster):

<%# String.Format("{0:c}", ((DataRowView) Container.DataItem)["dblBasePrice"]) %>

Good Luck,
Steve

Thank you both for your help.

Where can I find more information on the DataBinder.Val method? as well as for the DataRow View method?

Thanks,
