Hi,

How do I programmatically set HeaderTemplate for DataList? For example, I want to programmatically create the "<HeaderTemplate>" tags for the DataList below (see code below) and set its value to "Product Information", e.g.,  "<HeaderTemplate><b>Product Information</b></HeaderTemplate>", during Page_Load.

Thanks a lot.

<asp:DataList 
            ID="dlProducts" CssClass="dataView" 
            Runat="server">
            <ItemTemplate>
            <h4><%#Eval("ProductName")%></h4>
            Description: <%#Eval("ProductDesc")%><br />
           Price: <%#Eval("ProductPrice")%>
            </ItemTemplate>
        </asp:DataList>

you can create a user control (say YourUserControl.ascx) containing the html <b>Product Information</b>.
then you can load this control to your datalist header template dynamically with following (for example in aspx page_load before databinding):
            dlProducts.HeaderTemplate =  LoadTemplate("YourUserControl.ascx");

Hope this helps!
