    Hi sir,

    I have a site search in my site that searches all sitefinity and news pages. I need a row index to be added in each search item. for ex

    1. search item 1
    2. search item 2

    on clicking next page it sh'd be

    3. search item 3
    4. search item 4

    I used item index in the repeater but the same no is showing in every pages if i go on. It should be incrementing on every page till the last.

    can it be done?

    Hello sathiyaseelan,

    You can calculate the number of the item by using something like the bellow:
    <script type="text/C#" runat="server">
        protected void Page_Load()
            rptResults.ItemDataBound += new RepeaterItemEventHandler(rptResults_ItemDataBound);
        void rptResults_ItemDataBound(object sender, RepeaterItemEventArgs e)
            if (e.Item.ItemType == ListItemType.Item || e.Item.ItemType == ListItemType.AlternatingItem)
                Literal count = (Literal)e.Item.FindControl("Count");
                //the default number of items per page is 10
                count.Text = (e.Item.ItemIndex + 1 + (this.pager1.SelectedPage-1)*ItemsPerPage).ToString();
    <asp:Repeater ID="rptResults" runat="server">
            <dl class="searchResults">
            <asp:Literal ID="Count" runat="server"></asp:Literal>
            <dt><strong><a href='<%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "Url")%>'><%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "Title")%></a></strong></dt
            <dd><%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "Snippet")%></dd>
            <dd><em><a href='<%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "Url")%>'><%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "Url")%></a>

    Best wishes,
