I have a requirement to create a display page with an unknown number of categories and sub-categories. It would be easy creating parent/child repeaters if I knew all of them. The web site is for used cars and trucks. My client wants a breakdown of vehicle manufacturer and model. Some display pages will be by manufacturer (e.g. Ford, Toyota, etc.) but the models are dependent on their inventory. Other display pages are by vehicle type (e.g. pickup truck, conversion van, etc.) and both the manufacturers and models are dependent on their inventory.
For manufacturer pages, how can I create a child repeater for each model where I don't know all of the models?
For the vehicle type pages, how can I create parent/child repeaters where I don't know either the manufacturer or model?
At first I thought I could use arrays to store the unique combinations in my code behind file but I don't know how to reference the arrays in my presentation page (ref: code behind file = mypage.aspx.vb, presentation page = mypage.aspx).
Now I am thinking about a 3 level nested repeater. Has anyone created a 3 level nested repeater?
Your help is greatly appreciated!!
