Calling a class sub from HTML OnItemDataBound

I have a repeater control in which I call a subroutine using

OnItemDataBound="getNestedMenuData"

Open in new window


in which is:

    Sub getNestedMenuData(ByVal Sender As Object, ByVal e As RepeaterItemEventArgs)
        Dim lblSubYN As New Label
        lblSubYN = e.Item.FindControl("lblSub")       
        'do stuff with e
    End Sub

Open in new window


Is there any way I can do this same thing but call a sub from a class page instead of code behind?
I can't seem to get the value of e to pass.
Example?

TIA

Not sure I understand the question. Can you explain and show more code?

Right now I have

OnItemDataBound="getNestedMenuData"

Open in new window


on the HTML side.

Here is the code behind for that page...

    Sub getNestedMenuData(ByVal Sender As Object, ByVal e As RepeaterItemEventArgs)
        GenerateSubMenu(e)
    End Sub

Open in new window


And here is the class page for my application

    Public Sub GenerateSubMenu(ByVal e As RepeaterItemEventArgs)
'do stuff
    End Sub

Open in new window


I'm just trying to eliminate the code behind call and just call what is on the class page from the HTML

If you don't use e within GenerateSubMenu method, you can try replacing

OnItemDataBound="getNestedMenuData"

with

OnItemDataBound="GenerateSubMenu"
