I would like to create dynamically, a new row on my webpage for every object in my collection of objects... (these objects represent a select number services running on the local machine)

In this row I would like two buttons (start & stop) and some labels showing the current status of these services

[Start] [Stop] Service:Serv1 Status:Stopped

As I will need to dynamically create buttons (2 per row) and provide functionality behind these buttons to turn on / off the associated service, is it best I use a repeater or datagrid... or some other method entirely.

Thanks

Either will work. the grid will be more compact but if you don't want that then the repeater will let you lay out the fields/controls in whatever way you want. It really comes down to what sort of layout you want.
