The New DataRepeater Control in the Latest Power Packs Release

7 minutes, 6 seconds


Right click “Save as…”

In this interview John Hart, QA Lead on the Visual Basic Team, shows us the new DataRepeater control that has just been added to the latest Power Packs release on the Visual Basic Developer Center. Power Packs are free Add-Ins, Controls, Components, and Tools for you to use with Visual Basic to make developing applications even easier.

The new DataRepeater control allows you use standard Windows Forms controls to display rows of your data in a scrollable container giving you more flexibility and customization than standard grid controls.

    The data repeater is cool -- I'm glad it was added to the power pack. It solves an immediate problem I have with displaying information from a database on a user form.

    It would be nice to have this available for an ASP.NET web form. I thought I heard John or Beth mention that it was only available for Windows Forms.

    I'd like to know more about those nifty "weather demo components" that were displayed in John's VS toolbox. Smiley


  • Can we get a download link for this project or another example project ?

  • really struggling to understand how to change images with this control, anyone any ideas ?
  • Cool... I'm comparing DataRepeater control with PowerBuilder DataWindow control. DataWindow control allow user can edit data at runtime and also we can take printout as-is. Why Microsoft not yet develop like DataWindow control? For ex, If I populate employee details in DataRepeater control and I need any printout means, I needs to create report. So it is double work. But in DataWindow control has print properties.
