Hi experts

I used to show product in rows with datalist
like

img 1   / product1e  / detailed information /price
img 2   / product1e  / detailed information /price
img 3   / product1e  / detailed information /price
...
...
img 87   / product1e  / detailed information /price  

each row for one product
I wonder if I can show 4 product in one row
shows like this
                    img1     |    img2   |  img3   | img4
 row1          name    |   name2| name3| name4
                    price    |   price2  | price3| price4
                   -----------------------------------------
                   img5     |    img6   |  img7   | img8
 row2          name5    |   name6| name7| name8
                    price5    |   price6  | price7| price8

data are read from database
dont know how many products in total
is there a solution for that?

thx

You should be able to do that with the DataList already simply by setting the RepeatDirection to "Horizontal" and the RepeatColumns to "4".

For the page, use a repeater instead of a datalist. Use the following code:

<table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100%">
            <asp:Repeater ID="rptTest" runat="server" OnItemDataBound="rptTest_ItemDataBound">
                <ItemTemplate>
                    <asp:Label ID="lblHeader" runat="server" Text="<tr>" Visible="false" />
                    <td style="width:25%;">
                        Image<br />
                        Name<br />
                        Price<br />
                        <br />
                    </td>
                    <asp:Label ID="lblFooter" runat="Server" Text="</tr>" Visible="false" />
                </ItemTemplate>
                <AlternatingItemTemplate>
                    <asp:Label ID="lblHeader" runat="server" Text="<tr>" Visible="false" />
                    <td style="width:25%;">
                        Image<br />
                        Name<br />
                        Price<br />
                        <br />
                    </td>
                    <asp:Label ID="lblFooter" runat="Server" Text="</tr>" Visible="false" />
                </AlternatingItemTemplate>
                <FooterTemplate>
                    <asp:Label ID="lblFooterCleanup" runat="server" Text="" Visible="false" />
                </FooterTemplate>
            </asp:Repeater>
</table>

You'll want this in the code behind:
 protected void rptTest_ItemDataBound(object sender, RepeaterItemEventArgs e)
        {
            if (e.Item.ItemType == ListItemType.Item || e.Item.ItemType == ListItemType.AlternatingItem)
            {              
                if (e.Item.ItemIndex % 4 == 0)
                {
                    ((Label)e.Item.FindControl("lblHeader")).Visible = true;    
                }
                else if (e.Item.ItemIndex % 4 == 3)
                {
                    ((Label)e.Item.FindControl("lblFooter")).Visible = true;
                }
            }
            else if (e.Item.ItemType == ListItemType.Footer)
            {
                if (rptTest.Items.Count % 4 == 0)
                {
                    ((Label)e.Item.FindControl("lblFooterCleanup")).Text = "<td style=\"width:25%;\">&nbsp;</td><td style=\"width:25%;\">&nbsp;</td><td style=\"width:25%;\">&nbsp;</td></tr>";
                    ((Label)e.Item.FindControl("lblFooterCleanup")).Visible = true;
                }
                else if (rptTest.Items.Count % 4 == 1)
                {
                    ((Label)e.Item.FindControl("lblFooterCleanup")).Text = "<td style=\"width:25%;\">&nbsp;</td><td style=\"width:25%;\">&nbsp;</td></tr>";
                    ((Label)e.Item.FindControl("lblFooterCleanup")).Visible = true;
                }
                elseif (rptTest.Items.Count % 4 == 2)
                {
                    ((Label)e.Item.FindControl("lblFooterCleanup")).Text = "<td style=\"width:25%;\">&nbsp;</td></tr>";
                    ((Label)e.Item.FindControl("lblFooterCleanup")).Visible = true;
                }
            }
        }

Though if @carl_tawn's solution works, that would be more elegant. I started working on my solution before he posted his, so figured I'd post mine anyway.
