A RepeaterItem object represents an item in the Repeater control, such as the heading section, footer section, or a data item.

The data items of the Repeater control are stored in a RepeaterItemCollection object that can be accessed by using the Items property of the Repeater control.

You can use a RepeaterItem object to programmatically access the properties of an item in the Repeater control.

The following example demonstrates how to use a RepeaterItem object to display the contents of each data item in the Repeater control.
