Default Trying to use a LoginView within a Repeater

I'm trying to limit what certain roles see in this repeater (namely the edit and delete links) but still allow them to have the read links. However this approach gives me the error:

'System.Web.UI.WebControls.LoginView' does not contain a definition for 'DataItem'

when I try to compile. Help me please.

<asp:Repeater id="repSearchResults" runat="server" OnItemCommand="repSearchResults_ItemCommand" >
      <TD><STRONG>Plat Number</STRONG></TD>
        <a href="#####/####?id=<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "PLAT_ID") %>"><%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "PLAT_ID") %> </a>
      <asp:LoginView ID="lvEditDelete" runat="server">
          <asp:RoleGroup Roles="Administrator, Plat Writer">
                <asp:LinkButton ID="lbEditPlat" runat="server" CommandName="edit" CommandArgument='<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "PLAT_ID") %>' CausesValidation="false">Edit</asp:LinkButton></TD>
                <asp:LinkButton ID="lbDeletePlat" runat="server" CommandName="delete" CommandArgument='<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "PLAT_ID") %>' CausesValidation="false">Delete</asp:LinkButton></TD>

It would seem that the "Container" in that context is the login control not the repeater. I don't know what is available on the "Container" object, but perhaps there is a parent that would get you back up to the repeater and then it would work.

I haven't used the login view so I'm no authority on what you can or can not do with it. But it would seem to me that using a login control in a repeating control is out of place. Why are you using it there, what are you trying to achieve?
