Property Value

One of the RepeatLayout values. The default is Table.

Exception typeCondition


The specified value is not one of the RepeatLayout values.

Use the RepeatLayout property to specify whether the items in the DataList control are displayed in a table. If this property is set to RepeatLayout.Table, the items in the list are displayed in a table. If this property is set to RepeatLayout.Flow, the items in the list are displayed without a table structure.

When the DataList control is displayed in a table, you can use the GridLines property to specify a grid line style.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the RepeatLayout property to specify the layout style of the DataList control.
