Default Repeater or Girdview.

Hi all,

The requirement is to list down records from a table, there is no edit or add functionality needed, just pagin,sorting and searching is required, my question is:
1) Is repeater will perform better than gridview control?
2) As data is incremental and keeps growing, dose repeater has any limitation on # of records to be fetched?

Repeater has no built in sorting capability.

You also have big problems with nested repeaters. It's very difficult to find and control the nested ones, I had an application. They're great if you just need to repeat a simple list or set of tags over and over. But while they look flexible, they don't really work that well in practice to generate complex HTML.

Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now.
