Hi JCWEBHOST,

Not sure if this will work but it is worth a shot:

<%# IIf(Eval("available").ToString().Equals(""), Bind("price"), "No Stock") %>' />

Hope this helps,

Mark.

ok can you show me how this binding will work?

if available is null than the property of the label visiable must be true, else false

please...

I'm not 100% sure because this is a little out of my league but maybe you could wrap the label in a div and use a similar technique to hide or display the div

something like:

<div id="divavailable" style='<%# IIf(Eval("available").ToString().Equals(""), "display:none", "display:list-item") %>' >
      <asp:Label ID="lblavailable" runat="server" Font-Bold="True" Font-Names="Arial"  Font-Size="14px" ForeColor="#C31D1D" Text='<%# IIf(Eval("available").ToString().Equals(""), Bind("price"), "No Stock") %>' />'></asp:Label>
</div>

HTH
