Remarks

A DataListItem object represents an item in a DataList control, such as a heading section, a footer section, or a data item.

The data items in the DataList control are stored in a DataListItemCollection that can be accessed by using the Items property of the DataList control.

You can use a DataListItem to programmatically access the properties of an item in a DataList control.

Examples

The following example demonstrates how to use a DataListItem to display the contents of each data item in the DataList control.

NoteNote

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 Forms Page Code Model.
