don't want to use databinder.eval when binding to repeater

I have a repeater in asp.net/C#. I dont' want to use <%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"Name") %>.

Instead, i want to use
<%# Container.DataItem("Name") %> (what i use in VB.net) but i get an error: System.Web.UI.WebControls.RepeaterItem.DataItem' denotes a 'property' where a 'method' was expected

then I use
<%# Container.DataItem["Name"] %>
 Cannot apply indexing with [] to an expression of type 'object'

what the heck is the right syntax

in C#, everything is strongly typed.... so you need to cast before you can use it....
if you bind to dataset, you need to do something like

<%# ((DataRowView)Container.DataItem)["Name"] %>
