Here we answer specific questions which members face during programming.

We can't work on the whole source code. You need to do that yourself.
If you face any difficulty while coding, feel free to come back here and ask another question with specific issue describing the scenario.

Members will be happy to help you then.

Happy Coding. :)

The code looks correct at the first glance. Except you should create dt2 earlier, and just assign it to repeater2 like this: Repeater2.DataSource = dt2.copy.

As-is, you create and re-create dt2 on each Repeater1 row.

What do you get as a result? Empty repeater2?

no, am getting output for repeater2. I want output as if i click repeater1 then repeater2 should display.

Ahhhh...look at Accordion jQuery element or AjaxToolkit Accordion.
Member 11686116 19-Jun-15 6:53am
but i want to do it by repeater

Accordion simply allows you to show / hide controls you want. It doesn't affect data container. I've implemented it in one of my projects and there wasn't any problem.

Besides, you should be aware that fixating yourself on one technique limits the possibilities. If you find out there is a better/different way to do what you need, why not change?

This is not the case here, using accordion does NOT affect you, you can still use repeaters.
