Hi there,

I'm trying to add an ID tag to an html element that is an incremental number (such as the current row index) in the ItemTemplate of a ListView in ASP.Net.

Does anyone know how to do this? I'm a bit new to all of this and not sure if it can be done using the Eval statement. Does it need to be programmatically in the code file?

Thanks for any help!

Regards,

Jason
<asp:ListView ID="thumbList" runat="server">

        <LayoutTemplate>

          <div class="jcarousel-control">

            <asp:PlaceHolder ID="itemPlaceHolder" runat="server"></asp:PlaceHolder>

          </div>

        </LayoutTemplate>

        <ItemTemplate>

            <img ID="1" src="/lib/img/prod/s/<%#Eval("SKU")%><%#Eval("Label")%>.jpg"></a>

        </ItemTemplate>

        <EmptyDataTemplate>

        </EmptyDataTemplate>

    </asp:ListView>

Hi there! Thanks for your help... in the end I used:
<%# Container.DataItemIndex %> as ItemIndex isn't a member of ListViewDataItem.
