Mobile "Repeater"

Hi. I'm trying to figure out how you do the most basic Data-Bound "Repeater"
functionality on a Mobile ASPX page. I don't mean a list box, because it will
have repeated HTML and User Controls in each Row. How do I do this, please?

Hi Alex,

For standard web page's "Repeater" like functionality, in ASP.NET Mobile
application, there are two common approaches:

1) you can have a look at the "ObjectList" control, this is the template
databound control in ASP.NET Mobile's standard control collection:

#Introduction to the ObjectList Control

#Using Data Binding with ASP.NET Mobile Controls
2) As we've discussed in some previous methods. Using DeviceSpecific
template is always an options for those HTML/XHTML suppoted device, and you
can define and use standard ASP.NET controls(datalist or repeater) in those
specific template:

#Template Sets and Templated Controls

#How to: Create and Edit Templates

#Customizing ASP.NET Mobile Web Controls for Specific Devices

Hope this helps.
