Hi pratikshir,

You are unable to see the design page due to the below error.

Cannot create an object of type 'System.Int32' from its string representation '' for the 'RepeatColumns' property

As per the error you have not assign any integer value to the RepeatColumns property of DataList.

So assign any integer value to RepeatColumns property or remove the property from the DataList.

<asp:DataList ID="DataList1" runat="server" RepeatColumns="1" RepeatLayout="Flow">
