I have a repeater:

<asp:repeater id="someID" runat="server">

   <ItemTemplate>

      <asp:hyperlink id=<%# Eval("ID")%> runat="server"></asp:hyperlink>

   </ItemTemplate>

</asp:repeater>

I need to get reference to each hyperlink and access to the attributes of it.

On ItemDataBound, how do I go ahead and access a hyperlink whose ID is just being set? If I had a fixed ID for the hyperlink, that wouldn't be a problem. But since the I need the ID to also be assigned dynamically, I kinda got lost in finding the way.

    Hi Manoj, 


    private void rptMyTest_ItemDataBound(object sender, RepeaterItemEventArgs e)

        {

            if (e.Item.ItemType == ListItemType.AlternatingItem || e.Item.ItemType == ListItemType.Item)

            {

                Control control = e.Item.FindControl("ID_OF_YOUR_CONTROL") as Control;

                if (control != null)

                {

                    var dataItem = e.Item.DataItem as MYITEMTYPE;

                    if (DateTime.Now > dataItem.DateYouNeedToCheck)

                        control.ToolTip = "from the past";

                  //ALL THE MAGIC HAPPENS HERE

                }

            }

        }
