Hello,
I would like to create a menu with submenuitems like this using asp:Repeater.
<ul>
			<li id="li1" runat="server">Menu 1
				<ul>
					<li>Submenu1</li>
					<li>Submenu2</li>
				</ul>
			</li>
			<li id="li2" runat="server">Menu 2</li>
		</ul>

Open in new window


Here below you see what I have done so far. This creates a normal menu. I do not know how to add the submenu. I appreciate your help

<asp:Repeater ID="rptTest" runat="server">
			<HeaderTemplate>
				<ul>
			</HeaderTemplate>
			<ItemTemplate>
				<%#Eval("FullName") %><li>Value
				</li>
			</ItemTemplate>
			<FooterTemplate>
				</ul>
			</FooterTemplate>
		</asp:Repeater>

Open in new window


In code behind I bind to it like this

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
		List<User> iList = new List<User>();
		User i = new User();
		i.FullName = "MenuItem1";
		iList.Add(i);
		User i2 = new User();
		i2.FullName = "MenuItem2";
		iList.Add(i2);
		rptTest.DataSource = iList;
		rptTest.DataBind();
    }

Thank you. Some items will have sub menus but others not. Is it possible that you send a demo how I would get following output

Menu1
     Submenu1
     Submenu2
Menu 2 (no submenu)

or like this:

<ul>
                  <li id="li1" runat="server">Menu 1
                        <ul>
                              <li>Submenu1</li>
                              <li>Submenu2</li>
                        </ul>
                  </li>
                  <li id="li2" runat="server">Menu 2</li>
            </ul>

yes, possible, i hope the child repeater is based on parent repearer key. On itemdatabound event you can configure .
