Hi Umesh,

Could you please clarify a bit about your question?
What I understand is, In a datalist you are showing some contents from database which may have more than five words.
Try to take 5 words while binding the text.
in your aspx page
<asp:Label ID="lblMyCustom" runat="server" Text='<%# GetCustomText(DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "ActualStringPropertyName")) %>'></asp:Label>

in code behind file , just create a method called GetCustomText which takes an object as parameter and returns a string having five words.
protected string GetCustomText(object actual)

//Write your logic here to get some words
// and return a string.
