    I haven't done ASP.NET Web Forms projects lately. But the links below will help you achieve in showing images to DataList control.

    I wouldn't do that to my worst enemy.
    Old (and probably new, haven't tried nor have the desire) asp.net control will go in a certain amount, that is before you need to do something extra that would need ,p.e. javascript support. Then all hell breaks loose.
    It would be much preferred to go on a classic html and create some div's with simple elements or a javascript . For images i prefer (prefered, haven't do so in a couple of years) html template. See here an example :
    https://www.vbforums.com/showthread....nk-me-for-this
    For data I suppose it was, er, slickgrid? Something that szlamany used?
    All in all what that blasted asp.net controls do is sprouting html code but VERY VERY badly and I'm not sure if they have proper paging (if I recall they do but you have to create your queries on the sql first), bloat the page and make you cry. So it is much preferred NOT to use them other than simple data imports. If there are images, interactions web services etc, it will make you life miserable and slow down the whole page experience. I'm not sure what ms was smoking when they designed them but I can give the benefit of the doubt that they just made something fast and lazy to cover for php competition.

    Agree, for simple image gallery with small number of records and simple logic, datalist control would suffice. But for complex galleries, we have used js sliders or jquery datatable before which is similar to slickgrid.
