Property Value

An System.Web.UI.ITemplate that defines how the separator between items is displayed. The default is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

Use the SeparatorTemplate property to create a template that controls how the separator between items is displayed.

Caution noteCaution:

You can use the SeparatorTemplate property 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 Controls.

The following code example demonstrates how to create a template to control how separators between items are displayed.
