Hi,

I'm trying to setup an itemtemplate for a repeater.   What needs to happen is if the database field "inventory" equals 0, then the item should say "(backordered)" otherewise it should display a textbox someone can enter an amount they want to order.  I

 have no idea how to start this since I don't know how to get an if statement to use a database value without erroring out, or how to setup a function to call other database values from inside the repeater control.  I am using C# if that makes a difference.

Any help is appreciated

// IN CS
//========================================================
protected bool Display(object dataItem)
    {

        if ((string)DataBinder.Eval(dataItem, "inventory") == "0" )
            return false;
        else
            return true;

    }
========================================================
IN ASPX
Visible="<%# Display(Container.DataItem) %>"
//=======================================================
assuming you have two controls one label with  text backordered and one text
you can set them visible based on that if condition
