I have div tags in my html code (see the code example bellow)

Now, I am trying to make them visible and invisible (based on criteria) in my asp.net code by doing this:

  div1.Style("Display") = True
        div2.Style("Display") = "none"

But it tells me that Div1 "is not declared."
 



<asp:Repeater ID="Repeater1" runat="server">
<%--                     <headertemplate>
                     
                     </headertemplate>--%>
                     <ItemTemplate>
                     <font size="2" <b><label style="padding-right:93px;">Category ID</label><%#Eval("Category_ID")%></font>                                                
                        <br />
                         <font size="2"  ><label style="padding-right:82px;">Category Path</label><%#Eval("Category_ID")%></font>
                        <br />
                        <font size="2"><label style="padding-right:126px;">Name</label><%#Eval("Category_Name")%></font>
                        <br />
                        <font size="2"><label style="padding-right:93px;">Description</label><%#Eval("Category_Description")%></font>
                       <br />
                        <font size="2"><label style="padding-right:67px;">Parent Category</label><%#Eval("Parent_Category_ID")%></font>
                       <br />
                               <div id="div1" runat="server">
                                      <asp:Label ID="lblNoMainImage" runat="server" Text="No Image"></asp:Label>
                                    </div>

                                    <div id="div2" runat="server">
                                         <asp:HyperLink ID="hlMainImageView2" NavigateUrl="javascript:OpenChild('main');"
                                             runat="server">View</asp:HyperLink>
                                            &nbsp;
                                      &nbsp;

                                    </div>  

                       <br />                                          
                      </ItemTemplate>
                   
                    </asp:Repeater>

Since the Divs are in a repeater control, they aren't listed in the Page.Controls collection.  Insteadm they are in the Repeater.Controls collections.  I suggest something like Repeater1.Controls.FindControl("div1").  I haven't tried this, but I'm sure its very close.

as an aside the opposite of
div1.Style("Display") = "none"
is
div1.Style("Display") = ""

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Hi, first you have to use the css for creating the div design then after you have to set the visible property of div into your coding part.

How would i do that in conjunction with the find method...

simply doing this will not work:

 Repeater1.FindControl("div1")
        Repeater1.FindControl("div2")

        div1.Style("Display") = True
        div2.Style("Display") = "none"

try this :

Repeater1.FindControl("div1").Style("display") = "none"

However you may be better doing it in javascript.

A good artile for what you are trying to achieve :

If you want to use CSS to hide the control, then you could use:

Repeater1.FindControl("div1").Style("display") = "none";

Open in new window


If you don't want the server to send the control at all, then you would address the visible property in .Net, like so:

Repeater1.FindControl("div1").Visible = False;

Open in new window

Ah, right, sorry.  Try this:

Repeater1.FindControl("div1").Style["display"] = "none";

Open in new window


Style is a collection, not a method.
