Type: Microsoft.VisualBasic.PowerPacks.DataRepeaterItem

The currently selected object.

Use the CurrentItem property to change the controls or data on the currently selected DataRepeaterItem at run time.

The following example demonstrates how to use the CurrentItem property to make changes when an item is selected. It assumes that you have a form that contains a bound DataRepeater named DataRepeater1, a bound TextBox named UnitsInStockTextBox, and a Label named LowStockWarningLabel.

private void dataRepeater1_CurrentItemIndexChanged(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
    // Exit if the control is first loading.
    if (dataRepeater1.CurrentItem == null) { return; }
    // Check for zero quantity.
    if (dataRepeater1.CurrentItem.Controls["unitsInStockTextBox"].Text == "0") 
    // Display a the warning label on the form.
        this.lowStockWarningLabel.Visible = true;
        this.lowStockWarningLabel.Visible = false;
