Setting style properties in datalist depending on DB-content

Discussion in 'ASP .Net Web Controls' started by Jon Henning Bergane, Sep 12, 2003.

  1. Hi newbie here,

    Is it possible to set for example the color of some data
    in a datalist which is bound to an SQLDatareader
    depending on what data is in the current record? Is there
    an event where i can read the current db-record and set
    the color of the text??

    There is an event ItemCreated for DataList - You can check every element and
    do what you want with it. (using Attributes)

  3. So how could this be done here? i want to have
    Creationtime in another color.

    <asp:datalist id="dlArticles" runat="server" Font-
    Names="Verdana" Font-Size="11px">
    <%# Databinder.Eval
    (Container.DataItem, "Creationdatetime", "{0:t}")%>
    </b>&nbsp;<a href='article.aspx?RefID=<%#dr
    ("RefId")%>' target="mainart">
