First let me say that I am a super newbie so if you provide assistance, please give it in a detailed format so I know how to implement it.  :-)

I have a Repeater that I finally got to work, but I want to "hide" a table row (TR) if the value of a field (show_notes) is equal to "no".

Below is the code I am using. I read a bunch of tips but I cannot get it to work. Some of them had code behind solutions but I was not sure how to implement them.

I also included some of the code behind code if needed.

Thanks.

Mitch
<asp:Repeater ID="rptrExample" runat="server"> 
<HeaderTemplate>
</HeaderTemplate>
<ItemTemplate>
<table>
     <tr>
          <td>Notes:</td>
          <td>
               <%#DataBinder.Eval(Container, "DataItem.notes")%>
          </td>
     </tr>
and so on ...
 
Code Behind:
 
sql = String.Format("SELECT * FROM [vw_get_customers] WHERE [custid] = {0}", theCriteria)
conn = New SqlConnection(ConfigurationManager.AppSettings("connection_string"))
conn.Open()
cmdCourse = New SqlCommand(sql, conn)
 
rptrExample.DataSource = cmdCourse.ExecuteReader()
rptrExample.DataBind()

Regretfully this is not working.

When I replace:

<%#DataBinder.Eval(Container, "DataItem.notes")%>

With:

<%#IIf(DataBinder.Eval(Container, "show_notes") = "yes", DataBinder.Eval(Container, "DataItem.notes"), "")%>

None of the information in my repeater is displayed.

Also...I want to make the entire <tr>...</tr> not visible if "show_notes" = no

ok, I take it that the column your wanting to display is "Notes" so, that being the case try the following:

<asp:Repeater ID="rptrExample" runat="server">
<HeaderTemplate>
</HeaderTemplate>
<ItemTemplate>
<table>

<%#IIf(DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "show_notes") = "yes", "<tr><td>Notes:</td><td>" & DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "notes") & "</td></tr>", "")%>


fingers crossed!! :D
