I am using a Repeater Control . Now , I want to generate all Template for this Repeater Dynamically.

This is what I want accomplish (schema):

foreach (RepeaterItem repeatItem in Repeater1.Items)
{
 // Add ItemTemplate DataItems Dynamically
 if (.........)
 {
   //template1
   //ASP Table object here NOT LiteralControl  as  new LiteralControl("<table>"); In header Template  
  }
elseif (.......)
  {
  //template2
  //ASP CheckBoxList
  }
}

I`d like to do it form code behind.

To do that I'd put a LiteralControl or Panel in the item template and add the controls to it. But rather than loop, I would do this in the ItemDataBound event so that you had good access to the data too. So if you had a Panel in the item template you could do
	protected void repeater1_ItemDataBound(object sender, RepeaterItemEventArgs e)
	{
		Panel placeHolder = (Panel)e.Item.FindControl("panel1");
		// Add ItemTemplate DataItems Dynamically
		if (true)
		{
			//template1
			//ASP Table object here NOT LiteralControl  as  new LiteralControl("<table>"); In header Template  
			Table tbl = new Table();
			// Set the table options
			TableRow row = new TableRow();
			TableCell cell = new TableCell();
			cell.Text = "some text";
			row.Cells.Add(cell);
 
			// Cary on building the table.
			tbl.Rows.Add(row);
			placeHolder.Controls.Add(tbl);
		}
		else if (false)
		{
			//template2
			//ASP CheckBoxList
			CheckBoxList list = new CheckBoxList();
			list.Items.Add("add items here");
			placeHolder.Controls.Add(list);
		}
	}

Thank you for response.

But how can I put one control into another for example:

ASP CheckBoxList into ASP Table in particular row and column ?

like this:
Table tbl = new Table();
// Set the table options
TableRow row = new TableRow();
TableCell cell = new TableCell();
 
 
CheckBoxList list = new CheckBoxList();
list.Items.Add("add items here");
cell.Controls.Add(list);
 
row.Cells.Add(cell);
 
// Cary on building the table.
tbl.Rows.Add(row);
placeHolder.Controls.Add(tbl);
