DataList.AlternatingItemTemplate Property

Gets or sets the template for alternating items in the DataList.

Namespace: System.Web.UI.WebControls
Assembly: System.Web (in system.web.dll)

[TemplateContainerAttribute(typeof(DataListItem))] 
public virtual ITemplate AlternatingItemTemplate { get; set; }
/** @property */
public ITemplate get_AlternatingItemTemplate ()

/** @property */
public void set_AlternatingItemTemplate (ITemplate value)

public function get AlternatingItemTemplate () : ITemplate

public function set AlternatingItemTemplate (value : ITemplate)

Property Value

A System.Web.UI.ITemplate object that contains the template for alternating items in the DataList control. The default value is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

Use the AlternatingItemTemplate property to control the contents of alternating items in the DataList control. The appearance of alternating items is controlled by the AlternatingItemStyle property.

To specify a template for the alternating items, place the <AlternatingItemTemplate> tags between the opening and closing tags of the DataList control. You can then list the contents of the template between the opening and closing <AlternatingItemTemplate> tags.

Caution noteCaution

This control can be used to display user input, which might include malicious client script. Check any information that is sent from a client for executable script, SQL statements, or other code before displaying it in your application. You can use validation controls to verify user input before displaying the input text in a control. ASP.NET provides an input request validation feature to block script and HTML in user input. For more information, see Securing Standard ControlsHow to: Protect Against Script Exploits in a Web Application by Applying HTML Encoding to Strings, and Validating User Input in ASP.NET Web Pages.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the AlternatingItemTemplate property to control the contents of alternating items in the DataList control.

The following code sample uses the single-file code model and may not work correctly if copied directly into a code-behind file. This code sample must be copied into an empty text file that has an .aspx extension. For more information on the Web Forms code model, see ASP.NET Web Page Code Model.
