I have a repeater and I want to add a closing div/opening div after every 4 items.

At the moment, its only working when the number of items is 4

 if (itemRow == 4)

Open in new window


But I want it to do the same with 8, 12, 16, 20, 24, 28, etc items (any number divisible by 4) please


ASPX
<anthem:Repeater ID="rptDestinationInfo" runat="server" OnItemDataBound="rptDestinationInfo_ItemDataBound" AutoUpdateAfterCallBack="true" >
                            
                            <ItemTemplate>
                   
                            
                                    <div>
                                   
                                    <a href='<%#Eval("Name").ToString().ToQueryString() %>'></a>
                                   
                                    
                                    </div>
                                    <asp:Literal runat="server" ID="ltr1"></asp:Literal>
                        </ItemTemplate>
                            
                           
                            </anthem:Repeater>

Open in new window


CS
protected void loopRepeater()
        {

            int itemRow = 1;

            foreach (RepeaterItem item in rptDestinationInfo.Items)
            {
                if (item.ItemType == ListItemType.Item || item.ItemType == ListItemType.AlternatingItem)
                {
                    if (itemRow == 4)
                    {
                        Literal ltr1 = item.FindControl("ltr1") as Literal;
                        if (ltr1 != null)
                        {
                            ltr1.Text = "<br /></div><div class='row'>";
                        }
                    }
                    itemRow++;
                }
            }

        }

I fixed problem myself but here is the answer in-case anyone else needs it

Instead of

itemRow == 4

Open in new window


use

if (itemRow % 4 == 0)

Open in new window


Which basically divides the itemRow value by 4 and if the remainder left over is 0, then it adds my code to the literal.
