    I'm trying to get the same look and feel from a new ASPX page that I have in
    some older ASPs. They run side-by-side in a website.

    How do I get the <asp:DataGrid> to write the "bordercolordark" and
    "bordercolorlight" table attributes that I'm accustomed to using?

    Furthermore, how do you assign align="center" and other such attributes to
    individual columns?

  3. The easiest approach is to leave your table with all attributes as it is and
    to use a Repeater bound to your datasource with ItemTemplate ressembling the
    rows. You can use HeaderTemplate for the header. Something like this:
    <table width="100%" cellspacing="1">

    <colgroup span=3 class=TabGridItem></colgroup>

    <asp:Repeater Runat="server" id="dgActivity" DataMember="tblActivity"



    <td class=TabGridHeader>Date</td>

    <td class=TabGridHeader>Event</td>

    <td class=TabGridHeader>User</td>




    <tr runat="server" id="trAct">

    <td><%# ((System.Data.DataRowView)Container.DataItem)["Date"] %></td>

    <td><%# ((System.Data.DataRowView)Container.DataItem)["Event"] %></td>

    <td><%# ((System.Data.DataRowView)Container.DataItem)["User"] %></td>





    I use this techigue quit a lot when I first make an html proptotype and than
    turn it into an aspx page.
