I am having trouble getting data returned from a Stored Procedure to display in a Repeater.

I know the Stored Procedure is working and I know it is returning data, I tested it with a label, its shown in the code snippet.

how do you get returned data to display in the repeater?

Thanks :D

------ ASPX Code
 
    <asp:Label ID="UserIdLabel" runat="server" Text=""></asp:Label>
   
   <hr />
    
<asp:Repeater id="ListProfiles" runat="server" EnableViewState="False">     
    <HeaderTemplate>
    </HeaderTemplate>
    <ItemTemplate>
                <%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "UserId") %>
    </ItemTemplate>
 
</asp:Repeater>
 
------ Behind VB Code
                       Using myConnection As New SqlConnection(ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings("AGConnectionString").ConnectionString)
 
                Using myCommand As New SqlCommand("AGProfileSearchName", myConnection)
 
                    myCommand.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure
                    myConnection.Open()
 
                    myCommand.Parameters.AddWithValue("@SearchName", SearchName)
 
                    Dim dr As SqlDataReader = myCommand.ExecuteReader()
                    dr.Read()
 
                    UserIdLabel.Text = dr("UserId").ToString().Trim()
 
 
                    ListProfiles.DataSource = dr
                    ListProfiles.DataBind()
 
                    dr.Close()
 
                    myConnection.Close()
                End Using
            End Using

You need a while loop around your data reader. See this example http://www.csharpfriends.com/Articles/getArticle.aspx?articleID=1

brwwiggins seems to be right; I've encountered the same behavior and solution a while back.

My guess is the problem is starting here ----   Response.Write(dr("Field"))

How do you get the returned data to display in the repeater?
