I need to convert the folllowing to work as a list view. I tried it out
and have problems.
HeaderTemplate and  FooterTemplate are giving me problems.

 <asp:ListView ID="lvList" runat="server" OnItemDataBound="lvList_ItemDataBound">
            <table width="100%">
            <tr onclick="testRedirect('<%#GetRedirectUrl(Eval("UserName").ToString(), Eval("ProfileID").ToString() )%>')" style="cursor: pointer"
                onmouseover="style.backgroundColor='LightBlue'" onmouseout="style.backgroundColor=''">
                <td align="center">
                    <div id="srdiv">
                        <div id="srtitle">
                        <br />
                        <div id="srpicdiv">
                            <a id="HLMainPicID" runat="server" navigateurl='<%#"~/Secure/UserProfile.aspx?FromUserName="+Eval("UserName") + "&UserFromProfileID=" + Eval("ProfileID") %>'>
                                <asp:Image ID="MainPicID" Style="vertical-align: middle" class="srpic" runat="server" />

with ListView you should be using LayoutTemplate like below instead of Header and footer.
    <table width="100%">
         <asp:PlaceHolder runat="server" ID="itemPlaceholder"></asp:PlaceHolder>
            <br clear="All">
   //your content as it is
Check this example:

if ((e.Item.ItemType == ListItemType.Item) ||
               (e.Item.ItemType == ListItemType.AlternatingItem)) // Get Primary Image

from a repeater to listview

  // make sure this is an item in the data list (not header etc.)
            if ((e.Item.ItemType == ListViewItemType.Item) ||
                (e.Item.ItemType == ListViewItemType.AlternatingItem)) // Get Primary Image

Error      3      'System.Web.UI.WebControls.ListViewItemType' does not contain a definition for 'Item'      C:\inetpub\wwwroot\OmegaLove.Web\OmegaLove.Web\Secure\WhosOnline.aspx.cs      77      54      OmegaLove.Web
Error      4      'System.Web.UI.WebControls.ListViewItemType' does not contain a definition for 'AlternatingItem'      C:\inetpub\wwwroot\OmegaLove.Web\OmegaLove.Web\Secure\WhosOnline.aspx.cs      78      54      OmegaLove.Web

check like this:
//no need of alternatingItem, just DataItem

if (e.Item.ItemType == ListViewItemType.DataItem)
 //your code.
