Limit number of lines display in Data grid / repeatrer RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    How do I achieve the following functionality. 

    I need to display a long content like an article from database. But at the initial page, i don't want to display the complete text. I want to show few lines from the database like a preview and would like to add 'Read More' button at the bottom of each row thats getting generated from the database in gridview or datagrid. 

    Upon selecting the Read more - I would like to redirect the user to the complete contents. 

    when I searched in net for this I can see we need to use Substring (' text') to restrict the number of lines displayed for each row. 

    I am using ASP.net - with normal web forms. No MVC. Can some body help me out on this?
