Namespace:   System.Web.UI.WebControls

property ITemplate^ EmptyItemTemplate {
	virtual ITemplate^ get();
	virtual void set(ITemplate^ value);

Property Value

Type: System.Web.UI::ITemplate^

An object that contains the custom content for the empty item. The default is null, 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.
