   If Not IsPostBack Then
      DataList1.AlternatingItemTemplate = LoadTemplate("newtemplate.ascx")
      
      DataList1.DataSource = CreateDataSource()
      DataList1.DataBind()
   End If
End Sub 'Page_Load

void Page_Load(Object sender, EventArgs e) 
{
   if (!IsPostBack) 
   {  
      DataList1.AlternatingItemTemplate = LoadTemplate("newtemplate.ascx");
