Property Value

A System.Web.UI.ITemplate that defines how the header section of the Repeater control is displayed. The default value is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

Use this property to create a template that controls how the header section of a Repeater control is displayed.

Caution noteCaution

This control can be used to display user input, which might include malicious client script. Check any information that is sent from a client for executable script, SQL statements, or other code before displaying it in your application. ASP.NET provides an input request validation feature to block script and HTML in user input. Validation server controls are also provided to assess user input. For more information, see Validation Server Control Syntax.

The following example demonstrates how to use the HeaderTemplate to control the appearance of the header for the Repeater control. Notice that the HeaderTemplate contains the table's start tag (<table>).

<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="True" %>
    <script language="C#" runat="server">
       void Page_Load(Object Sender, EventArgs e) {
          if (!IsPostBack) {
             ArrayList values = new ArrayList();
             Repeater1.DataSource = values;
    <h3>Repeater Example</h3>
    <form runat=server>
       <asp:Repeater id=Repeater1 runat="server">
             <table border=1>
                <td><b> <%# Container.DataItem %> </b> </td>
                <td> <%# Container.DataItem %> </td>
