Hi experts,

In Datalist, I assigned Label named "lblWarning" with Visible = "False". When entered quantity is over than available quantity, I want to change Visible = "True" in .aspx.vb code.
How can I do it?

Followings are my codes.

========== 1. DEFAULT.ASPX CODE ===========
     <asp:DataList ID="DataList1" runat="server" RepeatColumns="3" Width="99%" RepeatDirection="Horizontal">
        <ItemTemplate>
          <table style="width: 99%;" cellpadding="4">
           <tr>
             <td>    
                <asp:Literal ID="litID" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("ID") %>' Visible="false"/>          
                Available:<asp:Literal ID="LitAvailable" runat="server" Text='<%# String.Format("{0:g}", Eval("Available")) %>' />
            </td>
            <td>              
                <asp:TextBox ID="txtQuantity" runat="server" Width="30px" OnTextChanged="txtQuantity_TextChanged" ></asp:TextBox>
                <asp:Label ID="lblWarning" runat="server" Text="*" ForeColor="Red" Visible="False"></asp:Label>
            </td>
           </tr>
          </table>
        </ItemTemplate>
        <ItemStyle VerticalAlign="Top" />
      </asp:DataList>

.========== 2. DEFAULT.ASPX.VB CODE ===========
Imports System.Data
Partial Class _Default
    Inherits System.Web.UI.Page
    Dim Quantities(pubVars.dliRowCount, 2) As Integer
.
.
.
    Protected Sub txtQuantity_TextChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) 'Handles txtQuantity.TextChanged
        Dim ddl As TextBox = DirectCast(sender, TextBox)
        Dim dli As DataListItem = DirectCast(ddl.NamingContainer, DataListItem)
        Dim lbl As Literal = DirectCast(dli.FindControl("LitID"), Literal)      'ProductID
        Dim _productId As Integer = Convert.ToInt32(lbl.Text)
        lbl = DirectCast(dli.FindControl("LitAvailable"), Literal)              'Available Inventory
        Dim _available As Integer = Convert.ToInt32(lbl.Text)
        Dim ix As Integer = dli.ItemIndex
        Dim iy As Integer = ddl.Text            'Order Quantity Entered
        If iy > _available Then                 'If Quantity > Avaialbe,
            iy = _available                     'then Quantity := Available
            lblWarning.Text.Visible = "True" ========================> I want to show * mark when quantity is over than available  ========> How can I do this?
        End If
        Quantities(ix, 0) = ix                  'Index
        Quantities(ix, 1) = iy                  'Quantity
        Quantities(ix, 2) = _productId          'Product
    End Sub
