How can I apply this:
<%# IIf ( Container.ItemIndex Mod 2 <> 0, "", "--- BLOCK OF CODE HERE ---")%>

Open in new window


To this?
<%#Container.DataItem("NAME")%>
&nbsp; / &nbsp; <a href="<%=Session("WSDownloadAsset") %>assetid=<%#Container.DataItem("Asset_ID")%>&dtype=assetdownload&size=0">Download</a>

Open in new window


I want the output from the code above ONLY to be displayed for odd items.

Correct, I only want it to display every other item.

Actually, the reason for my question is that I want to learn how to include blocks of code inside an if statement.

I normally only do code-behind, but I don't believe you can do what you're wanting to do.  Not in an in-line IIF, anyway.  The ampersands and quotes in the code are going to screw things up a bit.  I believe this, however, would work....

  <% If ( Container.ItemIndex Mod 2 <> 0 %>
       <%#Container.DataItem("NAME")%>&nbsp; / &nbsp; <a href="<%=Session("WSDownloadAsset") %>assetid=<%#Container.DataItem("Asset_ID")%>&dtype=assetdownload&size=0">Download</a>
  <% End If%>

I would use a container control such as a panel or a literal and then set its visible property using the IIF code block.
