align the images in a repeater control

siddhuoops asked
Last Modified: 2010-08-05
I am using a repeater control to display thumbnails from a database. When the page loads, it displays 25 thumbnails. What I want to do here is display 4 images per line and the position should be fixed. What would I have to do to make this happen? Any other images should go to the next line but only 4 in a line. I hope I am cleared.

Assuming you're using flow layout, you can create an HTML table in your repeater template,  insert an asp:literal control in your item template, then set the literal to "<tr>" before every 4th item and "</tr>" after every 4th item.
