The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on to see the new experience.

Raises the ItemDataBound event.

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

Protected Overridable Sub OnItemDataBound (
	e As RepeaterItemEventArgs


Type: System.Web.UI.WebControls.RepeaterItemEventArgs

The RepeaterItemEventArgs object that contains the event data.

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

Notes to Inheritors:

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

The following example illustrates a way to handle the ItemDataBound event of the Repeater control. The data is modified after it is bound to an item in the Repeater control but before it is rendered on the page.

            values.Add(New Evaluation("Shoe-So-Soft Softening Polish", "Poor"))
            values.Add(New Evaluation("DynaSmile Dental Fixative", "Fair"))

            Repeater1.DataSource = values

        ' This event is raised for the header, the footer, separators, and items.
