DataList.ShowHeader Property

Gets or sets a value indicating whether the header section is displayed in the DataList control.

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

public virtual bool ShowHeader { get; set; }
<asp:DataList ShowHeader="True|False" />

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the header is displayed; otherwise, false. The default value is true, however this property is only examined when the HeaderTemplate property is not null.

Use the ShowHeader property to specify whether the header section is displayed in the DataList control.

You can control appearance of the header section by setting the HeaderStyle property. The contents of the header section are controlled by the HeaderTemplate property.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the ShowHeader property to display the header section 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 Page Code Model.
