[BrowsableAttribute(false)]

Property Value

Type: System.Web.UI.WebControls.RepeaterItemCollection
A collection of RepeaterItem objects. The default is an empty RepeaterItemCollection.

The Repeater control populates the Items collection by enumerating every object in its DataSource. The Items collection is then used by the Repeater control to render each item in the control.

The following example demonstrates how to use the Items property to determine the index of the item selected from the Repeater control.
