View Full Version : Including tags before and after the tags generated by itemTpl in a data view

I am using a data view to display data from a store. I'm wondering how I might include html tags before and after all of the tags generated by the itemTpl. For example, I may want each item to be formatted as a table cell, like "<td>{myField}</td>". But before the itemTpl, I would need "<table><tbody><tr>", and after the itemTpl, I would need "</tr></tbody></table>". In addition, I might want to create a new table row after every three items, so would need to be able to include a conditional for that. I've looked into using just the tpl field instead of itemTpl, but couldn't get that to work. I also saw renderTpl, but not sure how to use it. Any help is appreciated.

Each item is aa element so they are separate. itemTpl will only be able to be used within each row.
