ListView.EmptyItemTemplate Property

Gets or sets the user-defined content for the empty item that is rendered in a ListView control when there are no more data items to display in the last row of the current data page.

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

abstract EmptyItemTemplate : ITemplate with get, set
override EmptyItemTemplate : ITemplate with get, set

Property Value

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

The empty item is displayed in a ListView control when there are no more data items to display in the last group of the current page. This can occur only if GroupItemCount is set to a value greater than 1. For example, in a ListView control, the GroupItemCount property might be set to 5 and the total number of items returned from the data source is 8. In that case, the last row of data will contain three items defined by the ItemTemplate template and two items defined by the EmptyItemTemplate template.

You can define a custom user interface (UI) for the empty item by using the EmptyItemTemplate property. To specify a custom template declaratively for the empty item, add an EmptyItemTemplate element inside the ListView control. You can then add the contents of the template to the EmptyItemTemplate element.

The following example shows how to define a custom template for the empty item.
