Hi,

yes, the correct solution for your scenario is by using FindControl method like this in the ItemDataBound event

if  e.Item.ItemType = ListItem.Item Or e.Item.ItemType = ListItem.AlternatingItem Then
 UserControlType uc = Ctype(e.Item.FindControl("UC", UserControlType)
 uc.empID = your value
End If

where the UserControlType is the name of the class of the user control

No i am still not able to get it..here is my code


 If (e.Item.ItemType = ListItemType.Item Or e.Item.ItemType = ListItemType.AlternatingItem) Then

         
            Dim P As New usercontrolType

            P = CType(e.Item.FindControl("UC"), usercontrolType)
            P. empID = 1234


    End If

-------------------------------------------------
and on myusercontrol page_load code i wrote

response.write ("ID=" & empID)

which shows empty

where do you write reponse.write in your usercontrol?
i think that it is before the empID property be assigned

try this

 Public Property empID() As Integer
        Get
            Return ID
        End Get
        Set(ByVal Value As Integer)

            ID = Value
            Response.Write ( "ID=" & ID & " on the setting" ) 'hope this will work
        End Set
    End Property

no, you sould not do that
where in the user control you try to access the empID property?

the problem is that the onclick event of the user control's button is executed after it's page load
so may be you recreate the user control between the Pageload event of the page and the onclick event
you have to recheck your code
