Thank you Brenden Kehren and Peter Mogilnitski for your input. Is there a way that I can get a count ? I need to make controls visible / not visible based on if the count = 0. I am also using a uni pager control and this condition
if (myUniPager.DataSourceItemsCount == 0)
is also returning zero always no matter how many records are there in basic repeater. Am i missing some thing here ?
