    Hello. I have Repeater and DataSource some table and I need change
    row in ItemDataBound event.

    So code looks like this
    <asp:Repeater ID="Repeater1" runat="server"
    <%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "id")%>

    protected void Repeater1_ItemDataBound(object sender,
    RepeaterItemEventArgs e)
    if (e.Item.ItemType == ListItemType.Item || e.Item.ItemType ==
    DataRowView row = e.Item.DataItem as DataRowView;
    string id = row["id"].ToString(); //get value here
    ((DataRowView)e.Item.DataItem)["id"] = 5; //try to change it


    The problem it doesn't have effect. In repeater I see the same id.
    So the question is how to change DataItem?

    When you change the dataitem in ItemDataBound, it has already been added to
    the repeater.
    Therefore, when you change it there, it's too late already.

    Do you want to change the result in the Repeater, or do you want to change
    the data?
    In the first case, use e.Item.Text to change the contents of the item that
    has been bound:
    e.Item.Text = 5;
