I have a label control in the footer of a repeater that lists a number of items. The repeater has items, quantities prices and extended prices. In the ItemDataBound event, I am putting the total price of the items in a label in the footer. I have a link button that resets all quantities to zero. I loop through the repeater items and update the quantities and extended prices, but I cant get to the total price label in the footer to set the text to zero.

I have tries Page.FindControl, Controls(0).FindControl, etc, but no luck.

Dim FooterItem As RepeaterItem = rptr.Controls(rptr.Controls.Count - 1)    'where rptr is the rptr

Yep&that was it.

I added:
lbLabel = FooterItem.FindControl("lblTotalPrice")
If Not lbLabel Is Nothing Then
lbLabel.Text = "$0.00"
End If
