Would like to Concatenate string value with '<%#Eval("Remaining_Seats")%>' to form the text of an asp.Table cell

I would like to concatenate string value of "Number Remaining:" with '<%#Eval("Remaining_Seats")%>' to form the text of an asp.Table cell.

Any ideas?

Simply type

"Number Remaining : " & <%#Eval("Remaining_Seats")%>

Sorry, but it didn't work when I typed

"Number Remaining : " & <%#Eval("Remaining_Seats")%>
That gave me (Parser Error  The server tag was not well formed.) error message.

Any other ideas

Hi, would you be able to use:

<td>Number Remaining:<%#Eval("Remaining_Seats")%></td>

or maybe

<td>Number Remaining:<%Eval('Remaining_Seats')%></td>

or, assuming "Remaining_Seats" was the name of a variable that was already assigned a value in ASP, maybe

<td>Number Remaining:<%Remaining_Seats%></td>

Regards,

Rob.

Sorry,  but I still can't get things to work.

Here is an example of an asp:Table cell that successfully displays the Remainind_Seats value:

<asp:TableCell ID="TableCell2" runat="server" ColumnSpan="2" VerticalAlign="Top" Text ='<%#Eval("Remaining_Seats")%>'>
</asp:TableCell>

Here is an example of an asp:Table cell that successfully displays "Number Remaining:"

<asp:TableCell ID="TableCell1" runat="server" Text='<strong>Number Remaining:&nbsp;&nbsp;</strong>'>
</asp:TableCell>

So what I am really trying to do is combine the two into one cell.

Hmmm, in that case, by all accounts, this should work.....in theory.....

<asp:TableCell ID="TableCell1" runat="server" Text='<strong>Number Remaining:&nbsp;&nbsp;<%#Eval("Remaining_Seats")%></strong>'>
</asp:TableCell>

Regards,

Rob.

The following is the only way that I have found to get the cell to appear the way I intended:

<asp:TableCell ID="TableCell11" runat="server" ColumnSpan="2">
    <strong>Remaining Seats:&nbsp;&nbsp;</strong>
    <asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("Remaining_Seats") %>'></asp:Label>
</asp:TableCell>
