ListView.AlternatingItemTemplate Property

Gets or sets the custom content for the alternating data item in a ListView control.

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

[<TemplateContainerAttribute(typeof(ListViewDataItem), BindingDirection.TwoWay)>]
abstract AlternatingItemTemplate : ITemplate with get, set
[<TemplateContainerAttribute(typeof(ListViewDataItem), BindingDirection.TwoWay)>]
override AlternatingItemTemplate : ITemplate with get, set

Property Value

Type: System.Web.UI.ITemplate
An object that contains the custom content for the alternating data item in a ListView control. The default is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic), which indicates that this property is not set.

Use the AlternatingItemTemplate property to define a custom user interface (UI) for the alternating data item. The AlternatingItemTemplate template usually contains the same controls and content as the ItemTemplate template, but with a different appearance to distinguish items.

To specify the custom template declaratively, add an AlternatingItemTemplate element inside the ListView control. Then add controls and content between the opening and closing <AlternatingItemTemplate> tags. To display the field values from the data source, use a data-binding expression. For more information, see Data-Binding Expressions Overview.

To create buttons that automatically select, delete, and edit operations, add a button control to the template. Set its CommandName property to one of the values listed in the following table.
