Hi experts,

I need blue colour in background of repeater control. I am using repeater cntrl like below. But unable to change the background colour.

Can you please suggest what is the best way to achieve that ?

 <asp:Repeater ID="rptPagerHeader" runat="server">
                                        <asp:LinkButton ID="lnkPageHeader" runat="server" Text = '<%#Eval("Text") %>' CommandArgument = '<%# Eval("Value") %>' Enabled = '<%# Eval("Enabled") %>' OnClick = "Page_ChangedHeader"></asp:LinkButton>

surround the repeater in a div and set the background of the div to blue.  then anything inside the div (eg: repeater and all controls) will also have a blue background unless there's a higher priority style rule.

HI satmisha,

Please check the sample below code. For change the background colour you have to add color in <td>

            <asp:Repeater ID="Repeater1" runat="server">
                            <td style="background-color: Gray; width: 100px;">Id</td>
                            <td style="background-color: Gray; width: 100px;">Name</td>
                            <td style="background-color: Gray; width: 100px;">Age</td>
                            <td style="background-color: Gray; width: 100px;">Salary</td>
                            <td style="background-color: Gray; width: 100px;">Country</td>
                            <td style="background-color: Gray; width: 100px;">City</td>
                            <td style="background-color: blue; width: 100px;">
                                <asp:Label ID="lblId" runat="server" Text='<%#Bind("id")%>'></asp:Label>
                            <td style="background-color: blue; width: 100px;">
                                <asp:Label ID="lblName" runat="server" Text='<%#Bind("name")%>'></asp:Label>
                            <td style="background-color: blue; width: 100px;">
                                <asp:Label ID="lblAge" runat="server" Text='<%#Bind("age")%>'></asp:Label>
                                <td style="background-color: blue; width: 100px;">
                                    <asp:Label ID="lblSalary" runat="server" Text='<%#Bind("salary")%>'></asp:Label>
                                <td style="background-color: blue; width: 100px;">
                                    <asp:Label ID="lblCountry" runat="server" Text='<%#Bind("country")%>'></asp:Label>
                                    <td style="background-color: blue; width: 100px;">
                                        <asp:Label ID="lblCity" runat="server" Text='<%#Bind("city")%>'></asp:Label>
