The RepeaterItemCollection class represents a collection of RepeaterItem objects, which in turn represent the data items in a Repeater control. To programmatically retrieve RepeaterItem objects from a Repeater control, use one of the following methods:

  • Use the indexer to get a single RepeaterItem object from the collection using array notation.

  • Use the CopyTo method to copy the contents of the collection to a System.Array object, which can then be used to get items from the collection.

  • Use the GetEnumerator method to create an System.Collections.IEnumerator interface, which can then be used to get items from the collection.

  • Use foreach (C#) or For Each (Visual Basic) to iterate through the collection.

The Count property specifies the total number of items in the collection and is commonly used to determine the upper bound of the collection.

      void Page_Load(Object Sender, EventArgs e)
if (!IsPostBack)
   ArrayList myDataSource = new ArrayList();

   myDataSource.Add(new PositionData("Item 1", "$6.00"));
   myDataSource.Add(new PositionData("Item 2", "$7.48"));
   myDataSource.Add(new PositionData("Item 3", "$9.96"));

   // Initialize the RepeaterItemCollection using the ArrayList as the data source.
   RepeaterItemCollection myCollection = new RepeaterItemCollection(myDataSource);
   myRepeater.DataSource = myCollection;
