I have an object that looks like this :

int frequency
string term
string eventtitle
string presenter
string phone
string email
DateTime begintime
DateTime endtime
.....etc.....

Now on my display page I have an array of these objects named events.

I would like the page to display as follows:

Monthly (frequency = 2)
-----------------------------------------------------
           Fall (term)
           ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
             Event 1 (eventtitle)      Joe Smith (presenter)     ...etc.....
             Event 3 (eventtitle)      John Jacobs(presenter)     ...etc.....
             Event 4 (eventtitle)      Mary Black (presenter)     ...etc.....

           Winter (term)
           ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
             Event 2 (eventtitle)      Bob Brown (presenter)     ...etc.....
             Event 6 (eventtitle)      Suzy Sanchez(presenter)     ...etc.....

Weekly (frequency = 1)
-----------------------------------------------------
           Summer(term)
           ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
             Event 10 (eventtitle)      George Jefferson (presenter)     ...etc.....

           Winter (term)
           ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
             Event 21 (eventtitle)     Jim Ploney (presenter)     ...etc.....
             Event 67 (eventtitle)     Henry Howards (presenter)     ...etc.....


So basically grouped first on frequency,
then within frequency grouped on term,
then within term ordered by event title


I can change the array of objects to a collection or some other structure, but cannot access the database tables directly (using a N-tier structure for our project) becaues we are isolating the presentation layer from the data and business layers.

How do I go about binding this data to a repeater or datalist in order to have the heirarchical display mentioned above.

Thanks!!

OKay apparently no one here knows the answer...

I came up with a work around which is to write a function in the presentation layer that manually calculates whether it is a new group or not.

A very clumsy/clunky work-around, but it works
