I`d like to change my existing GridView to Repeater. Below is a code:

<asp:GridView ID="GridViewMoreNews" runat="server" DataSourceID="SqlDataSourceMoreNews" AutoGenerateColumns="False" ShowHeader="False" GridLines="None">
      <asp:TemplateField ItemStyle-CssClass="longBar text11">
          <font id="fontImportance" runat="server" ondatabinding="checkImportance"><%# Eval("longNews") %></font>      
              <div id="addNewsText">Data dodania: <%# Eval("addDate", "{0:dd/MM/yyyy}") %></div>
          <br />
<asp:SqlDataSource ID="SqlDataSourceMoreNews" runat="server" ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:bmWebPageConnectionStringReader %>" SelectCommand="SELECT [idNews], [longNews], [addDate], [importance], [position], [status] FROM [news] WHERE [status] = 1 ORDER BY [addDate] DESC"></asp:SqlDataSource>

Code behind:
    protected void checkImportance(object sender, EventArgs e)
        HtmlGenericControl font = (HtmlGenericControl)sender;
        GridViewRow row = (GridViewRow)font.NamingContainer;

        int colorCode = Int32.Parse(DataBinder.Eval(row.DataItem, "importance").ToString());

        if (colorCode == 1)
            font.Attributes.CssStyle.Add("color", "red");

Simply I change row color according to "importance"

Thanks in advance.
