hi Karthikanbarasan

i can try to describe diffrence between Datagrid, datalist and repeator control features .
Datagrid has paging while Datalist doesnt,Datalist has a property called repeat. Direction = vertical/horizontal. This is not there in Datagrid. A repeater is used when more intimate control over html generation is required.When only checkboxes / radiobuttons are repeatedly served then a checkboxlist or radiobuttonlist are used as they involve fewer overheads than a Datagrid.

Thanks & Regard's
