I added a repeater control and gave its datasource a DS that has rows.

Repeater1.DataSource = DS

I added it to the form as shown in the HTML file attached.

Why doesn't the repeater show any data? or show anything at all on the screen for that matter.


<body>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <div>
    
        <table class="style1">
            <tr>
                <td class="style2">
                    &nbsp;</td>
                <td>
                    <asp:Repeater ID="Repeater1" runat="server">
                    <HeaderTemplate>
                    <TR>
                     <th>
                     Description
                     </th>
                    </TR>
                    </HeaderTemplate>
                    
                   <ItemTemplate>
                   <Td><%#Eval("Category_Name")%></Td>
                   
                   </ItemTemplate>
                    </asp:Repeater>
                </td>
                <td>
                    &nbsp;</td>
            </tr>
            <tr>
                <td class="style2">
                    &nbsp;</td>
                <td>
                    &nbsp;</td>
                <td>
                    &nbsp;</td>
            </tr>
            <tr>
                <td class="style2">
                    &nbsp;</td>
                <td>
                    &nbsp;</td>
                <td>
                    &nbsp;</td>
            </tr>
        </table>
    
    </div>
    </form>
</body>
