I just want to know if there is any problems with this code

<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "diaryEntry").ToString().Substring( 0, DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "diaryEntry").ToString().Length < 255 ? DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "diaryEntry").ToString().Length : 255 ) %>

I basically want to limit the post preview to just a few characters.

fallenarmies,
Put all this in a function.
eg:
<%#PostData(DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "diaryEntry"))%>

public string PostData(string strItem)
{
  if(strItem.Length<255)
    return strItem
 else
   return strItem.Substring(0,255)
}

should this be inline or in codebehind?

fallenarmies ,
Both work for inline or code-behind as well.
