How to access datasource fields in an ASP.NET Repeaters ItemDataBound event


I have a Repeater control that is being bound to the result of a Linq query.

I want to get the value of one of the datasource's fields in the ItemDataBound event, but I'm not sure how to do this.

Best Solution

Depending on the DataSource... If your DataSource is a DataTable, then your DataItem contains a DataRowView:

protected void rptMyReteater_ItemDataBound(object sender, RepeaterItemEventArgs e)
    if (e.Item.ItemType == ListItemType.Item || e.Item.ItemType == ListItemType.AlternatingItem)
        Button b = e.Item.FindControl("myButton") as Button; 
        DataRowView drv = e.Item.DataItem as DataRowView;
        b.CommandArgument = drv.Row["ID_COLUMN_NAME"].ToString();
