You can write a Replace function or just use <%# Eval("MyData").ToString().Replace("\n", "<br />") %>. This should help.

Otherwise, write the .css code like this under the ItemTemplate

<div style="overflow:scroll;width:300px;"><%# Eval("MyData")%></div>

This will create a scroll bar if the width of the data increases more than 300 pixels.

These are just a work around.
