Good Afternoon,

I'm looking for some assistance with a Data Repeater in ASP.net.

The repeater I have contains an item template that has the the following code...

<tr>
                    <td>
                        <asp:Button ID="btnEdit" runat="server" Text="Edit" Width="50px" />
                    </td>
                    <td>
                        <asp:Label ID="lblLanguage" runat="server" Text=<%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"Language")%> />
                    </td>
                    <td>
                        <asp:Label ID="lblRegion" runat="server" Text=<%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"Region")%> />
                    </td>
                    <td>
                        <asp:Label ID="lblMsg_ID" runat="server" Text=<%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"Msg_ID")%> />
                    </td>
                    <td>
                        <asp:TextBox ID="txtPriority" runat="server" Width="40px" Text=<%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"Priority")%> />
                    </td>
</tr>

My question is that the txtPriority control gets populated with an integer from SQL Server per item in the repeater.

I need to be able to allow a user to click a save button after updating any of these values, and then I need to be able to reference each of the values, and update them in their respective records in the database.

The problem is that I can't reference txtPriority directly because it obviously does not use the same control id multiple times in the page.

If anyone can assist me with this issue it would be most highly appreciated.

Thank you in advance for your time!
