hide div/panel when datatable is empty

I have a div that I want to hide when the rows.count of a dataset = 0 but my code does not work and the error is telling me the ID of the div is not defined...Any ideas?

I have also tried using a Panel but I get the same issue...
<div class="detailRow" id="ViewFilesDiv" runat="server">
                            <div class="leftcol">
                                <a href='javascript:ViewMaterialVersions(<%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "MaterialID")%>)'><img src="/images/viewfiles.png" /></a></div>
                            <div class="rightcol">&nbsp;
                            
                            </div>
                            <div class="floatfix"></div>
                        </div> 


Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
        If Not Page.IsPostBack Then
            BindDetails()
            Dim tbMaterialVersion As DataTable = New IMCSelect().getMaterialVersions(-1, DetailId, 1, 0, Application("logMaterials")).Tables(0)
            If tbMaterialVersion.Rows.Count = 0 Then
                ViewFilesDiv.visible = False
            End If
        End If
    End Sub

If the div is inside a Repeater then you will probably need to the the ItemDataBound event of the Repeater to turn off visibility if the data table is empty. Change the div to an asp:Panel so you can get a reference to it in the ItemDataBound event. Here's some sample code to get you started.
'Item Databound event handler

Protected Sub Repeater1_ItemDataBound(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.RepeaterItemEventArgs) Handles Repeater1.ItemDataBound
        If e.Item.ItemType = ListItemType.Item Or e.Item.ItemType = ListItemType.AlternatingItem Then
            Dim hiddenPnl As Panel = CType(e.Item.FindControl("divDownloadFile"), Panel)
            hiddenPnl.Visible = False
        End If
    End Sub


<!--ASPX markup-->

<asp:Repeater ID="Repeater1" runat="server" DataSourceID="SqlDataSource1">
            <ItemTemplate>
				<div><%# DataBinder.Eval(Container, "DataItem.MaterialId") %></div>						    
            
                <asp:Panel CssClass="detailRow" ID="divDownloadFile" runat="server">
                     <div class="leftcol"></div>
                     <div class="rightcol">
                            <asp:Label ID="lblDownloadFile" runat="server" Text="Label">Label</asp:Label>
                     </div>
                     <div class="floatfix"></div>
                </asp:Panel>
            </ItemTemplate>
        </asp:Repeater>

Here's the whole source in case I am being stupid and missing something;

The label is in a div within a repeater.


Partial Class ContentZone_PublicationSummary
    Inherits System.Web.UI.Page

    Public ReadOnly Property DetailId() As Integer

        Get
            If String.IsNullOrEmpty(Request.QueryString("Id")) Then
                Return 0
            Else
                Dim _DetailId As Integer = 0
                Integer.TryParse(Request.QueryString("Id"), _DetailId)
                Return _DetailId
            End If
        End Get

    End Property

    Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
        If Not IsPostBack Then
            Dim tbPublicationPublication As DataTable = New IMCSelect().getPublications(DetailId, "", 1, 0, Application("logGeneric")).Tables(0)
            'If tbPublicationPublication.Rows(0)("").ToString <> "" Then
            '    lblDownloadFile.text = "sdsdsdd"
            'End If
            '<a href="/uploads/publications/<%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "PDFFile")%>">Download Summary</a>

            repDetails.DataSource = tbPublicationPublication
            repDetails.DataBind()
        End If
    End Sub


End Class
