Datalist with Conditional Formatting


Can anyone advise how I change the colour of the 'SINST' dataitem value to red if it is say under 50?

<td width="60" align="center"><%# GetPatchInstall(DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"SINST")) %></TD>

Please advise if you need to see further code or need further information.



RE: Datalist with Conditional Formatting

I would remove the code from the HTML, this is more like classic ASP.NET coding.
I would instead place a literal or label object there, and in the code-behind (ItemDataBound event), use .FindControl("your label name") to get a reference to the control.
From there, you can check the value and set the background color of the literal or label accordingly.
