Hi All,

I have got a nested repeater within another repeater and I am getting the following error mesage .

Server Error in '/' Application.

The relation is not parented to the table to which this DataView points.

I could not find what is wrong . attached is the code snippet. any help will be apreciated..

This is the .aspx file 
<%@ Page Language="C#" MasterPageFile="~/MideaMaster.master" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="ProductType.aspx.cs" Inherits="ProductType" Title="Untitled Page" %>
<asp:Content ID="Content1" ContentPlaceHolderID="MideaContentBody" Runat="Server">
 <div id = "ProductTypeMainImage">
<asp:Repeater ID="DepartmentRepeat" runat="server" OnItemDataBound="Department_DataBound" >
 <ItemTemplate><li><strong><%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "ProductId") %> - <%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "ProductName") %></strong></li>
      <asp:Repeater ID="CategoryRepeat" runat="server" >
  <ItemTemplate><li><%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "ProductId") %> - <%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "Subcategory") %></li></ItemTemplate>
And this is my code behind file 
public partial class ProductType : System.Web.UI.Page
    SqlConnection MideaConnection;
    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        MideaConnection = new SqlConnection("Data Source=ACCPAC\\CASTEL;Initial Catalog=Midea;uid = WebLogin;pwd=cepre#dae#");
        SqlDataAdapter MideaDataAdapter = new SqlDataAdapter();
        DataSet MideaDataSet = new DataSet();
        SqlCommand MideaProductCommand = new SqlCommand();
        MideaProductCommand.Connection = MideaConnection;
        MideaDataAdapter.SelectCommand = MideaProductCommand;
        MideaProductCommand.CommandText = @" Select * from Product";
        MideaDataAdapter.Fill(MideaDataSet, "Product");
        DepartmentRepeat.DataSource = MideaDataSet.Tables["Product"];
        SqlCommand MideaSubcategoryCommand = new SqlCommand();
        MideaSubcategoryCommand.Connection = MideaConnection;
        MideaDataAdapter.SelectCommand = MideaSubcategoryCommand;
        MideaSubcategoryCommand.CommandText = @"Select distinct ProductID,SubCategory from Models";
        MideaDataAdapter.Fill(MideaDataSet, "SubCategory");
        DataRelation drv = new DataRelation("myRelation", MideaDataSet.Tables["Product"].Columns["ProductId"], MideaDataSet.Tables["SubCategory"].Columns["ProductId"]);
        //Dim rpt as repeater = Ctype(DepartRepeat.Items(0).findcontrol("CategoryRepeat"),Repeater)
    protected void Department_DataBound(object sender, RepeaterItemEventArgs e)
        RepeaterItem item = e.Item;
        if ((item.ItemType == ListItemType.Item) || (item.ItemType == ListItemType.AlternatingItem))
            Repeater r = (Repeater)item.FindControl("CategoryRepeat");
            DataRowView drv = (DataRowView)item.DataItem;
            r.DataSource = drv.CreateChildView("myRelation");

"Problem Solved, If anybody is interested to know what went wrong, when using nested items in .Net with a data relation,you need to make sure you create the relation explicitly before you create your view and before you bind to the repeater, otherwise the relation will mysteriously appear to be active but will not be bound."

Does that help?
