    Comment on it

    Hi All,

    RSS feeds are the Rich Site Summary feeds, benefit users who want to receive timely updates from favorite websites or to aggregate data from many sites. Here i am using ABC News RSS feeds to get the news Update. A particular RSS feeds are only available if they are provided by the site.

    Firstly we will add a Aspx file in our project file then add a repeater control in it or copy paste following code :-

     <asp:Repeater ID="rptrRssControl" runat="server">
                    <HeaderTemplate>
                        <table border="0" width="80%" cellpadding="2" cellspacing="1" style="border: 1px solid maroon;">
                            <tr bgcolor="maroon">
                                <th style="color:white">Title</th>
                                <th style="color:white">Link</th>
                                <th style="color:white">description</th>
                                <th style="color:white">Published Date</th>
                            </tr>
                    </HeaderTemplate>
                    <ItemTemplate>
                        <tr>
                            <td width="20%">
                                <%# DataBinder.Eval(Container, "DataItem.title")%>
                            </td>
                            <td width="20%">
                                <%# DataBinder.Eval(Container, "DataItem.link")%>
                            </td>
                            <td width="20%">
                                <%# DataBinder.Eval(Container, "DataItem.description")%>
                            </td>
                            <td width="20%" align="center">
                                <%# DataBinder.Eval(Container, "DataItem.pubdate")%>
                            </td>
                        </tr>
                    </ItemTemplate>
                    <AlternatingItemTemplate>
                        <tr bgcolor="#e8e8e8">
                            <td width="20%">
                                <%# DataBinder.Eval(Container, "DataItem.title")%>
                            </td>
                            <td width="20%">
                                <%# DataBinder.Eval(Container, "DataItem.link")%>
                            </td>
                            <td width="20%">
                                <%# DataBinder.Eval(Container, "DataItem.description")%>
                            </td>
                            <td width="20%" align="center">
                                <%# DataBinder.Eval(Container, "DataItem.pubdate")%>
                            </td>
                        </tr>
                    </AlternatingItemTemplate>
                    <FooterTemplate>
                        </table>
                    </FooterTemplate>
                </asp:Repeater>

     

    Then on code behind add the following code on page load event :-

     try
                {     
                    //Create a new DataSet
                    DataSet ds = new DataSet();
    
                    //Read the Response into the DataSet
                    ds.ReadXml("http://feeds.abcnews.com/abcnews/topstories");
    
                    //Bind the Results to the Repeater
                    if (ds != null && ds.Tables.Count > 0)
                    {
                        rptrRssControl.DataSource = ds.Tables[3];
                        rptrRssControl.DataBind();
                    }
                }
                catch (Exception ex)
                {
                    throw ex;
                }

    The out put will be like :-
