ItemDataBound text modification?

I've got a repeater that's bound to a datareader and I'd like to
conditionally modify the text that is being outputted. Previously, I've done
this by assigning a name to attribute to the surrounding tablecell in which
the <%# %> tags reside and I could use the findcontrol to grab a handle to
the control by name and do any necessary modifications. I'm wondering if I
can get around this? Is it necessary to assign a name to a surrounding cell?
What if I'm not using a table? I tried to use e.item.controls (0), but this
does not seem to correspond with all available controls that get databound (I
guess it excludes non web-server controls like simple client side tables),
but there seems to be only one element of type "DataBoundLiter alControl." I
was guessing that this represented the text that was between the databinding
tags, and hoped that I could modify the text property to add some text in,
but it's a read only property. To sum it up, two questions:

1, what is the DataBoundLitera lControl actually used for? What does it
represent?

2, Is there a way to do what I'd like to do? To modify the text that is
bound, without using findcontrol? (The control has no name, it's just the
contents of the <%# %> tags.

Thanks...

I want to access the DataRow used in DataBinding from the ItemDataBound event. In my case, the reason for doing this is to determine whether I need to make a word singular or plural. How can I do this? Thanks. -- Nathan Sokalski njsokalski@hotmail.com http://www.nathansokalski.com/

I'm creating a dynamic control for each row in a REPEATER based on database values. ItemDataBound creates the control for the initial load (not postback), but I cannot get the control recreated when command to save data (postback) occurs. How do I get the values for this dynamic control on postback and place the control back into its original position? Sample Uses Pubs Database for SQL Server: Imports System.Data.SqlClient

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
