Hi Guys,

I have a table which looks like this

1 | Transport |  Bus-Service | .....

2 | Transport | Tain-Service | ......

3 | Facilities  | Bus-Service..| ...

4 | Facilities  | Rail-service..| .....

and my objective is to display


   Bus Service ....

   Train Service...


   Bus Service..

   Tain Service...

This Data is coming from database.. Now what I am doing is on server side I am looping through the table like if(data == "Transport") and binding all it's corresponding data into one repeater... and same with Facilities..

Now my UI looks like

   <h2> Transport </h2>

 <asp> repeater databind= "Transport looped data"...

<h2> facilities </h2>

<asp> repeater databind ="Facilities looped data"...

But ideally this is not looking good(hard coding header)

I am trying to do like this so that I don't have to hard code for each header..

<asp> ListView ...>


   <h2> header(From database) </h2>





My problem is for one header there are sub items.. I have to display header only once

How do I get rid of header duplicates???

Any idea .. Thanks alot

If I understood your problem correctly, I would replace the ListView with a TreeView[^]

Here is a nice article on binding data to the TreeView:

Nested repeater control should solve your problem. The idea is Column2 (Transport/Facilities) will bind to outer repeater and inner repeater will bind Column3(Bus-Service/Tain-Service) specific to respective outer repeater value, this way you do not have to hard code any value. Similar idea implementation references is given below,

Hope this will help.

Thanks for your response. I did the same. I created a class which holds one header value and list of all elements that belongs to that header. I made a list and bind it to ListView in which I have used nested repeater controls..
Thanks a lot..
