How Do You Insert Values Into Control Elements Inside an ASP.NET Repeater?

I am using an ASP.NET repeater tag with linkbutton controls inside the repeater tag.  How do you insert values inside a linkbutton tag when it is inside the ASP.NET repeater elements?  I want to do this from the C# code behind the ASP.NET page.

Thanks,

Dan

Hi,

You have several options.
If you bind some data (database?) use Repeater.ItemDataBound Event. It occurs after Repeater's each child is data-bound but before rendering.
in the method check the current item and set value i.e.
void Repeater1_ItemDataBound(Object Sender, RepeaterItemEventArgs e) {
  (LinkButton )e.Item.FindControl("LinkButton").Text = "desired value here";
}

Open in new window


Other option is to use Repeater.ItemCreate time to set the value

void R1_ItemCreated(Object Sender, RepeaterItemEventArgs e) {
// same as above
}

Open in new window


Finally you could use Control.PreRender. There you could set value directly
Look also Control.OnPreRender Method
