The BasicRepeater control allows you to display items from a data source in a list based on specified templates. It is derived from the intrinsic ASP.NET Repeater control, so standard ASP.NET configuration techniques can be used to set up BasicRepeater style and behaviour.
BasicRepeater can be used with any bindable data source - it doesn't use the Kentico CMS database or API.
The portal engine equivalent of the BasicRepeater control is the Listings and viewers -> Basic repeater web part.
The CMSRepeater control provides a more convenient way to display data from Kentico CMS.

•Getting started - contains a step-by-step tutorial that allows you to learn the basics of using the control
