Repeater.CreateItem Method

This API supports the .NET Framework infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code.

Creates a RepeaterItem object with the specified item type and location within the Repeater control.

Namespace:  System.Web.UI.WebControls
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

'Declaration
Protected Overridable Function CreateItem ( _
	itemIndex As Integer, _
	itemType As ListItemType _
) As RepeaterItem

Parameters

itemIndex
Type: System.Int32
The specified location within the Repeater control to place the created item.
itemType
Type: System.Web.UI.WebControls.ListItemType
A ListItemType that represents the specified type of the Repeater item to create.

Return Value

Type: System.Web.UI.WebControls.RepeaterItem
The new RepeaterItem object.

The following code example demonstrates how to override the CreateItem method in a custom server control so that it always returns a new RepeaterItem and corresponding index and type in a custom Repeater server control.
