Writing HTML <br> code into a panel or placeholder

Hello everyone,

I am in a bit of a dilema trying to write an HTML <br> tag into a panel or

Here is the situation

I have 4 tables that represent 4 levels of data (level4 is linked to a
level3 etc) all the way up to a level 1


I am using a datalist to contain these 4 levels, but I want to recreate a
tree like structure so that the user can easily see what level2's are in a
level1 as well as select a particular level to see its details.

The link buttons work fine but I am unable to get the levels to look right.
So I looked at trying to add a BR tag at the end of each level but it does
not seem to be working.

This is the result that I am getting:

Level1Level2aLe vel........

When I look at the View Source on the web page the <br> tags are NOT there.

What am I doing wrong?

I thought about trying to use HtmlTextWriter, but I have NO idea how that
works and the examples in VS are not very explicit.

Any help would be much appreciated... I am even open to other ways to create
this tree like structure.

BTW - I am using VS 2003.

Here is the code that I have created so far for my datalist itemdatabound:

Private Sub dlstMaster_Item DataBound(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As
System.Web.UI.W ebControls.Data ListItemEventAr gs) Handles
dlstMaster.Item DataBound
Dim dv As DataRowView = e.Item.DataItem
Dim spacer As New LiteralControl( "<br>")
Dim level1linkbutto n As New LinkButton
Dim level1panel As PlaceHolder = e.Item.FindCont rol("Level1Pane l")
level1linkbutto n.Text = dv("Level1Name" )
level1linkbutto n.CommandArgume nt = dv("Level1Id"). ToString
level1linkbutto n.CommandName = "Level1Clic k"
level1panel.Con trols.Add(level 1linkbutton)
level1panel.Con trols.Add(space r)
Dim ds As New DataSet
ds = Session("ds")
If Not dv Is Nothing Then
Dim level2dv As DataView
level2dv = dv.CreateChildV iew("level2")
Dim row As DataRowView
For Each row In level2dv
Dim level2linkbutto n As New LinkButton
level2linkbutto n.Text = row("Level2Name ")
level2linkbutto n.CommandArgume nt = row("Level2Id") .ToString
level2linkbutto n.CommandName = "Level2Clic k"

level1panel.Con trols.Add(level 2linkbutton)
level1panel.Con trols.Add(space r)
' Now loop through the level 3 details
Dim level3dv As DataView
level3dv = New DataView(ds.Tab les("AllLevel3" ), "Level2Id =
'" & row("Level2Id") .ToString & "'", "Level3Name ",
DataViewRowStat e.CurrentRows)
Dim level3row As DataRowView
For Each level3row In level3dv
Dim level3linkbutto n As New LinkButton
level3linkbutto n.Text = level3row("Leve l3Name")
level3linkbutto n.CommandArgume nt =
level3row("Leve l3Id").ToString
level3linkbutto n.CommandName = "Level3Clic k"
level1panel.Con trols.Add(level 3linkbutton)
level1panel.Con trols.Add(space r)
' now get the level 4's
Dim level4dv As DataView
level4dv = New DataView(ds.Tab les("AllLevel4" ),
"Level3Id = '" & level3row("Leve l3Id").ToString & "'", "Level4Name ",
DataViewRowStat e.CurrentRows)
Dim level4row As DataRowView
For Each level4row In level4dv
Dim level4linkbutto n As New LinkButton
level4linkbutto n.Text = level4row("Leve l4Name")
level4linkbutto n.CommandArgume nt =
level4row("Leve l4Id").ToString
level4linkbutto n.CommandName = "Level4Clic k"
level1panel.Con trols.Add(level 4linkbutton)
level1panel.Con trols.Add(space r)
End If
End Sub

The problem is that when I add the spacer control (a literal control with
the BR in it) it is not added into the placeholder. I have tried to use a
panel, with the same effect

I have a composite control. Which has 2 parts. Under some conditions first part must be shown sometimes another. So naturally I used 2 Panel object. And hide one of them. The problem is that hidden Panel object renders itself as <br>. Not sure what is the purpose of it. But it ads extra line which is not acceptable. Is there another control which when hidden is HIDDEN and does not render anything.

Something that I recently noticed in IE6 (I don't know whether it is true for other browsers or versions of IE) is that it renders <br/and <br></br> differently. With the <br/version, which is what most people use when they write static code (some people use <br>, but with xhtml you are required to close all tags), IE6 simply breaks to the next line like it is supposed to. However, with <br></br>, which is what is sometimes generated by...
