Displaying a variable

I simple do not know how to display a variable on a page. The DAL approach I am using is code-behind TableAdapters.

I know how to use a TableAdapter and bind that to a repeater, table, etc. but I want to display a variable, possibly in a label, without using Design Mode, and without inline coding any sql statements.

Is it possible to accomplish this using the TableAdapter method, and do I have to assign some object the variable, or can I just display it in the presentation layer?

If you have the variable in the code behind then follow this:
In the code behind (somewhere in the Page_Load):
string variableToDisplay = "I want this on the web page";
label1.Text = variableToDisplay;

In the aspx:
<asp:label id="label1" runat="server" Text="" />

Does that answer your question??

Using the tableadapter method, I have the following, which I am not able to make work:

azjobsiteTableAdapters.seekerProfileTableAdapter seeker = new azjobsiteTableAdapters.seekerProfileTableAdapter();
        Label1.Text = seeker.GetResumeViews(Convert.ToInt32(Session["rUserID"]));

My presentation layers looks like this:
<asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server" Text="<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "datePosted") %>"></asp:Label>

The error I get is that the server tag is not well formed.

You need to use single quotes when calling some code eg.

<asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server" Text='<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "datePosted") %>'></asp:Label>
