I have a repeater that will loop the textboxes and label.
My questions. I can I get the label and textbox value inside of the FOR LOOP.
It is not just one label / textbox. It will have at least 10 to 15 rows depended on the database table.

Thanks

<asp:Repeater runat="server" ID="commonInformationList">
                                    <ItemTemplate>
                                     <div class="form-group">                                                
                                                 <label class="col-sm-4 control-label"><b><%# Eval("DescriptionAndInputHint") %>:</b></label>                                                
                                                 <div class="col-sm-8"><asp:TextBox runat="server" ID="commonInformationValue" CssClass="form-control"></asp:TextBox>
                                                 </div>                                                
                                            </div>    
                                    </ItemTemplate>
                                  </asp:Repeater>

Your question is unclear.
Are you trying to use a loop on the client side or the server side?

You don't need a loop if you want to capture the values on the server side, you can do that on the repeater's ItemDataBound event
The event is documented here
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.web.ui.webcontrols.repeater.itemdatabound(v=vs.110).aspx

On the client side, it is also possible but it would require some extra work.

Yes,
It is easy to find
Check this Helper Method

public static Control FindControlRecursive(Control root, string id)
{
   if (root.ID == id) 
     return root;

   return root.Controls.Cast<Control>()
      .Select(c => FindControlRecursive(c, id))
      .FirstOrDefault(c => c != null);
}

Open in new window


And use this by following way
1. for TextBox

foreach (RepeaterItem repeated in rptBudget.Items)
{
   TextBox commonInformationValue=            
      (TextBox)FindControlRecursive(repeated, "commonInformationValue");       
}

Open in new window

2. for Label
foreach (RepeaterItem repeated in rptBudget.Items)
{
   Label lblControl =            
      (Label)FindControlRecursive(repeated, "lblControl");       
}

Open in new window
