Returns a System.Collections.IEnumerator interface that can iterate through all the RepeaterItem objects in the RepeaterItemCollection.

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

public IEnumerator GetEnumerator()

Return Value

Type: System.Collections.IEnumerator

A System.Collections.IEnumerator interface that contains all RepeaterItem objects in the RepeaterItemCollection.

Use this method to create a System.Collections.IEnumerator that can be used to iterate through each item in the RepeaterItemCollection.

Use the IEnumerator.Current property to get the item currently pointed to in the collection.

Use the IEnumerator.MoveNext method to move to the next item in the collection.

Use the IEnumerator.Reset method to move the enumerator back to the initial position.


After you create a System.Collections.IEnumerator object or use the IEnumerator.Reset method to move the enumerator to the first item in the collection, you must call the IEnumerator.MoveNext method. Otherwise, the item represented by the IEnumerator.Current property is undefined.

To see this code in the context of a complete example, see the RepeaterItemCollection class topic.

      void GetEnumerator_Clicked(Object Sender, EventArgs e)
labelDisplay.Text = "Invoking GetEnumerator method.<br />";
labelDisplay.Text += "The Items collection contains: <br />";

// Display the elements of the RepeaterItemCollection using GetEnumerator.
RepeaterItemCollection  myItemCollection = myRepeater.Items;
IEnumerator myEnumertor = myItemCollection.GetEnumerator();
   RepeaterItem myItem = (RepeaterItem)myEnumertor.Current;
   labelDisplay.Text += ((DataBoundLiteralControl)
      myItem.Controls[0]).Text + "<br />";
