I'm doing a query such as the following:
SELECT TOP(3) ItemName FROM Items WHERE merchantCategory='Travel' ORDER BY NEWID()
to display inside a formview. I would like the results to display as follows:
Item1 | Item2 | Item3
However, they're automatically going to display like this inside the formview:
Item1
Item2
Item3
How do I custom format the results using the formview?

if your main purpose is to display, then you should use listView, since it will give better control over presentation

Sorry, I meant DataList not listView
you can specify RepeatDirection="Horizontal" , for horizontal alignment of data

you can use it like this.

I m attaching the code.
U must convert form view into template mode .
By default Item template get displayed. I m attaching only that code .
It will make u'r FORMVIEW READONLY.
Let me know if u've any difficulty.

                            <asp:Label ID="UserNameLabel" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("UserName") %>' />
                        </td>
                        <td>
