DataList control displays data using user-defined layout. However there are many added advantages in comparison with Repeater control in terms of graphical layout.

One of the main advantage of DataList control is it supports directional rendering (Horizontal/Vertical) also. It has many properties and several events attached. We can say DataList ias the advanced version of Repeater control.

Its properties like BackColor, ForeColor, BorderColor, BorderStyle, BorderWidth, Height etc. are implemented through style properites of <table> tag.

Following are some important properties that are very useful.
AlternatingItemTemplate Template to define the rendering of every alternate item.
FooterTemplate Template to define how to render the footer.
HeaderTemplate Template to define how to render the header.
Items Gets the collection of DataList Items.
ItemTemplate Template to define how items are rendered.
SeparatorTemplate Template to define how separator between items will be rendered.
