In this article I'm trying to explain what is repeater control, when we use Repeater control, how to bind datasource to Repeater control and how to display the result set to Repeater control.
Use of Repeater Control:
The Repeater control is a data-bound control that uses templates to display data. Repeater control is used to display the table structure of data same like GridView but the unique feature of Repeater control is faster execution no other controls will execute like a Repeater control. Repeater control is light weight control. Using HTML table structure we can implement the design for Repeater control. See below code snippet for designing.
Repeater control works faster execution, no other control will work that much. But the disadvantage is it doesn't have any built-in support for paging, editing, or sorting of the data that is rendered through one or more of its templates.
