You can set the background color of items in the DataList in ItemCreated. This method is called as each item is created. Within your ItemCreated method, you can use e.Item.BackColor to set the background color.

To randomize the colors, take a look at the Random class. You'd probably want to use one of the "Next" overrides to generate your color number or numbers.

Here is an example of how to set the color on a row in a DataGrid in ItemCreated. A datalist will be almost identical I have never used Random, so you'll have to work from the documentation to figure out how to use it to generate a color number. It shouldn't be that hard.
    Private Sub dgUsers_ItemCreated(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataGridItemEventArgs) Handles dgUsers.ItemCreated

Dim lb As LinkButton
If e.Item.ItemType = ListItemType.AlternatingItem
e.Item.BackColor = Color.Green
if e.Item.ItemType = ListItemType.Item Then
e.Item.BackColor = Color.Red
End if
End If
End Sub

Color Control in DataList Codebehind
My DataList for products is populated in my Codebehind file, the sql being a stored procedure which takes in page, number of products per page, and categoryid. Each category has a particular color, which I want to display as a heading outside of the datalist. At the moment, the color value is coming from an Inner Join in my sql statement. I have referenced this value before as such... ForeColor=<%# System.Drawing.Color.FromName(Eval("Color").ToString()) %> This obviously in my aspx page. I want to transfer this to my code behind file.

About colors
Hi In some of our DW, we change the background color of every alternate row to make the DW more readable (huge list) The main color is 'windows backgroud' ( = 1073741824) , and the alternate color is "a_little_bit_more_grey_than_windows_background" The thing is : to define alternate color, I need to know the RGB value of 'windows background'. At the moment, i take this value from the registries, but I cannot really trust that method as users could have a different registry setting ( you never know...). I had a problem on a test machine where the windows c...

How to make template field control color same as row background color
This is really a two part thing:  1.)  I want to make a linkbutton control in a templatefield the same color as the row color. I have alternating row colors, so I can't just hard code it. 2.) I want to make the link button change colors when the mouse goes over the ROW. Then go back to row color onmouseout.  So basically, the link will be invisible until the row is moused over.  Thanks!

Celendar Colors and Category Colors
Hi, using Sunbird 0.5, I wonder how I could swap the colors used for displaying the category and calendar. This means currently I get a box filled up with the color of the calendar, surrounded by a rectangle colored in the category color. I simply would like to swap both colors since I can differentiate better e.g. if this is a birthday event or a private event. For now you have to look very closely since all events look more or less the same because of the small used border with used to display the category. Is there an option for this?
