Property Value

Type: System.String
The ID for the item placeholder in a ListView control. The default is "itemPlaceholder".
ExceptionCondition

The specified ID is null or an empty string.

Use the ItemPlaceholderID property to specify an ID for the item placeholder. The item placeholder is the control that you add to the LayoutTemplate template (if you are not using groups) or to the GroupTemplate template (if you are using groups) to represent where the item will be rendered.

The following example shows how to use the ItemPlaceholderID property to specify an ID for the item placeholder of the ListView control.
