Hi BeerGod,

you can use datagrid, repeater or datalist - everything depends on the purpose
all of these controls has an event ItemDataBound (http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/cpref/html/frlrfSystemWebUIWebControlsDataListClassItemDataBoundTopic.asp) which is fired before the current row of the control is shown
so if you use this event  ( and the example of the given url ) you can pass a value from your datarow to the user control

Regards!

Inside the ItemTemplate for the Repeater you can add the markup for
your user control.

<ItemTemplate>
    <uc:MyControl runat="server" id="MyControl1"/>
</ItemTemplate>

Catch the Repeater's data binding event to manipulate your user
control in each row:

protected void Repeater1_ItemDataBound(
        object sender,
        RepeaterItemEventArgs e
    )
{
    // get the control
    MyControl c = e.Item.FincControl("MyControl1");
 
    // get the data container
    object o = e.Item.DataItem;

    // get o into c

}

Makeing some sense?
