I have a few code lines like this,

public void rt_changed(object sender, AjaxControlToolkit.RatingEventArgs e)

{

    //Label l = sender as Label;

    foreach (DataListItem li in datalist.Items)

    {

 

      Label l = li.FindControl("nl") as Label;

 

    }

    Label3.Text = l.ToString(); // l values is not getting

 }

Here the variable l is null. I know it's happening because the declaration of l has been made inside the scope of the foreach. I don't know how to call the variable with value in globally.

    You just need to move the declaration of the l variable outside of the loop to make it available. You can declare (tell what it is) in a different place than where you assign it a value.

    public void rt_changed(object sender, AjaxControlToolkit.RatingEventArgs e)

    {

      // Declare l, also give it a default value, in the case that datalist is empty.

      Label l = null;

      foreach (DataListItem li in datalist.Items)

      {

        l = li.FindControl("nl") as Label;

      }

      Label3.Text = l.ToString(); // l values is not getting

    }

    Please note that l will only get assigned to the last value in the datalist collection, which probably isn't exactly what you want.
