remove comma from repeater when city is null

-Dman100- asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-09
I have a repeater that displays job postings by category, like the following:

Account Executive
 Austin, TX, US

The city field is not required and sometimes it is not input, so the display looks like this:

Account Executive
 , TX, US

It has the extra comma when the city is not entered and looks weird.

How can I remove that comma?

See below for the repeater code:

<asp:Repeater ID="Repeater2" runat="server">
                            <h4><%# Eval("CategoryName") %></h4>
                            <asp:Repeater ID="Repeater1" runat="server" DataSource='<%# GetJobsByCategory((int)(Eval("CategoryID"))) %>'>
                                    <li><a href='<%# Eval("URL") %>' target="myIframe" onclick="javascript:document.location.href='#desc'"><%# Eval("JobTitle") %></a></li>
                                    <p style="text-indent:15px;font-size:small;"><%# Eval("City") %>, <%# Eval("State") %>, <%# Eval("Country") %></p>


private ADP.JobsDataTable allJobs = null;

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        JobCategoriesBLL categoriesAPI = new JobCategoriesBLL();
        Repeater2.DataSource = categoriesAPI.GetCategories();

protected ADP.JobsDataTable GetJobsByCategory(int categoryID)
        if (allJobs == null)
            JobBLL jobsAPI = new JobBLL();

            return jobsAPI.GetJobsByCategory(categoryID);

        allJobs.DefaultView.RowFilter = "CategoryID = " + categoryID;
        return allJobs;
