hi there,
I have tried using the repeatlayout using the flow option although it seems to insert a line break after each element.  The code segment produces the following html.
               
                <span id="myfavourites"><span>
                    <div class="fav-box">
                        <img src="" alt="" />
                        <div class="fav-title">
                            test video
                        </div>
                        <div class="fav-content">
                           
                        </div>
                    </div>

                </span><br /><span>
                    <div class="fav-box">
                        <img src="/x" alt="" />
                        <div class="fav-title">
                           dsa
                        </div>
                        <div class="fav-content">
                            dsa
                        </div>
                    </div>

                </span><br /><span>


As you can see the last line for each record </span><br /><span> which I dont want.  Can this be removed?  Or can I use a different asp control to get around this?  

Many thanks

<asp:DataList ID="myfavourites" runat="server" RepeatLayout="Flow">
                <ItemTemplate>
                    <div class="fav-box">
                        <img src="<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "") %>.jpg" alt="" />
                        <div class="fav-title">
                            <%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "") %>
                        </div>
                        <div class="fav-content">
                            <%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "") %>
                        </div>
                    </div>
                </ItemTemplate>
                </asp:DataList>

Hi, set the following properties in your DataList:

RepeatDirection="Horizontal"
RepeatColumns="# of items in your datasource"

I think that should do the trick.

in the rendered html .net creates the following

                    <ul>

                        <span id="ctl07_TopNav_DataList"><span>
                            <li>xxx</li>
                        </span><span>
                            <li>xxx</li>
                        </span><span>
                            <li>xxx</li>
                        </span></span>

                    </ul>


any ideas how I can remove the
                        "<span id="ctl07_TopNav_DataList"><span>"

it brakes my validation with w3c!
argh!

thanks
