how could I insert new line inside repeater ItemTemplate tag after showing the first two items, or four items, or ...
so the result looks like :
item_1       item_2
item_3       item_4
item_5       item_6

now I am getting this result :
item_1       item_2        item_3       item_4          item_5       item_6

what I am trying ( my code )  is  :
html code :
<%@ Control Language="vb" AutoEventWireup="false" Codebehind="ucCruise.ascx.vb" Inherits="GTC2.ucCruise" TargetSchema="http://schemas.microsoft.com/intellisense/ie5" %>
<asp:Repeater id="rpt1" runat="server">
            <TABLE id="Table1" cellSpacing="7" cellPadding="1" width="100%" border="0">
            <TD bgColor="#efecc2">
                  <table width="100%" border="0">
                              <td style="WIDTH: 156px" align="left">Top</td>
                              <td align="right">asd</td>
                              <td style="WIDTH: 156px" align="left"><img height="100" width="150"></td>
                              <td align="left">asd<br>
                              <td align="right" colSpan="2">More</td>
            <asp:Label id="Label1" runat="server"></asp:Label>
            <%if icount mod 2 = 0 then
            Label1.Text = "<br>"
            Label1.Text = ""
            Endif  %>
            </TR> </TABLE>

my code behind is :
    Public icount As Integer = 0
    Private Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
        Dim tmp_ds As DataTable = get_trips().Tables(0)
        rpt1.DataSource = tmp_ds
    End Sub
    Private Function get_trips() As DataSet
        Dim Conn_String As String = Configuration.ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings.Get("ConnString")
        Dim Conn As New SqlClient.SqlConnection(Conn_String)
        Dim ds As New DataSet
        Dim DA As New SqlDataAdapter("select * from GTCW_CruiseTrip where trip_id < 59", Conn)
        Return (ds)
    End Function

    Private Sub rpt1_ItemCreated(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.RepeaterItemEventArgs) Handles rpt1.ItemCreated
        icount += 1
    End Sub
End Class

Dear Ameerh24,
I'll suggest you using DataList control instead of repeater in this case.
You can control the layout as requested above, even display retrieved results in horizontally or vertically way.
Otherwise, you have to write a bunch of custom code just to control the layout above.
Please check this article regarding how you control the layout as mentioned:
