Hello Chip Gallent,
I am not sure what is CategoryName
The syntax FOR FILTERING is Category = "HERE TYPE THE CATEGORY NAME USED FOR FILTERING"
The syntax FOR SORTING is only by metakey - say : Author ASC
The control cannot returns you the following structure out of the box
- Download 1
- Download 2
- Download 3
- Download 4
- Download 5
- Download 6
- Download 7
- Download 8
This is a grouping
- you group downloads by category name . By default the control will return a list of items filtered or sorted by a criteria. If you want to perform grouping you need to create a completely new custom control or control that extends the default one - DownloadList.
In the template you need to have two nested Repeater controls. One will be responsible for displaying the Category name ( Cagegory1, Cateogory2, Category 3) , since the other repeater will show the items that are inside each category. You need to bind the first repeater to all categories for the Provider that have items. Then get all items for each category and bind the second provider.
var cntManager =
var alItems = cntManager.GetContent();
> categoryNames =
category = (
// now you have a list of all available categories
// and you have to bind the firs repeater to this list
// The bind the second repeater use GetContent method and its overloads
