OnItemCreated Method

Repeater.OnItemCreated Method

Raises the ItemCreated event.

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

protected virtual void OnItemCreated (
	RepeaterItemEventArgs e
protected void OnItemCreated (
	RepeaterItemEventArgs e
protected function OnItemCreated (
	e : RepeaterItemEventArgs



The RepeaterItemEventArgs object that contains the event data.

Raising an event invokes the event handler through a delegate. For more information, see Consuming Events.

Notes to Inheritors When overriding OnItemCreated in a derived class, be sure to call the base class's OnItemCreated method.

The following example illustrates a way to handle the ItemCreated event of the Repeater control. A new line of text indicating the item type is displayed whenever a Repeater item is created.

<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="True" %>
    <script language="C#" runat="server">
       int Count = 1;
       void Page_Load(Object Sender, EventArgs e) {
          if (!IsPostBack) {
             ArrayList values = new ArrayList();
             values.Add(new PositionData("Microsoft", "Msft"));
             values.Add(new PositionData("Intel", "Intc"));
             values.Add(new PositionData("Dell", "Dell"));
             Repeater1.DataSource = values;
       void R1_ItemCreated(Object Sender, RepeaterItemEventArgs e) {
          String iTypeText = "";
          switch (e.Item.ItemType) {
             case ListItemType.Item:
                iTypeText = "Item";
             case ListItemType.AlternatingItem:
                iTypeText = "AlternatingItem";
             case ListItemType.Header:
                iTypeText = "Header";
             case ListItemType.Footer:
                iTypeText = "Footer";
             case ListItemType.Separator:
                iTypeText = "Separator";
          Label1.Text += "(" + Count++ + ") A Repeater " + iTypeText + " has been created; <br>";
       public class PositionData {
          private string name;
          private string ticker;
          public PositionData(string name, string ticker) {
             this.name = name;
             this.ticker = ticker;
          public string Name {
             get {
                return name;
          public string Ticker {
             get {
               return ticker;
