What is the difference between Datalist and Repeater?

 Posted by Hariinakoti on 4/4/2012 | Category: ASP.NET Interview questions | Views: 4433 | Points: 40

->Datalist supports multiple columns displaying and using repeat columns property
->Repeater doesn't support multiple columns display,no repeat columns property
->Datalist supports styles for formating templates data[headerstyle,...]
->Repeater is not providing styles
->Datalist renndering output[html content]will be slow compare with repeater.

If the requirement can achieve using repeater and datalist,choose repeater for better performance.
