In , what is the difference between gridview and repeater controls

For me datagrid or gridview can be used when you need to display data with able to edit each row sorting paging etc;if you want just to display one table repeater is more prefered

Maybe a repeater is better but you will be fine with a gridview if you are familiar with a gridview

If you want more flexibility in the output than gridview provides take a look at repeater;since the repeater doesn t directly implement paging you ll have to supply your own next and previous buttons

Also you can use templatecolumn with gridview and add your labels into this template column;but imo repeater is simpler to customize your view by templates

Each button raises the correct event but the events never reach the gridview because they are handled at a lower level by the repeater

from question

The gridview is for tabular data only and does a lot of the work for you like binding data automatically to columns;the repeater gives you more control over the result but you have to do more because nothing gets binded automatically

from question  

Why not we use Repeater Control instead of Gridview Control?

If you don t need any of the features of a gridview why not use a repeater;a repeater keeps it simple for implementation but also allows you to have full control over the generated source

A repeater might be a better decision than a gridview as they are friendlier for using custom layouts
