Alternating styles in ListView- without AlternatingItemTemplate

From within any template, you have access to the current index of the row within the whole data set, using Container.DataItemIndex, and within the currently displayed items, using Container.DisplayIndex. This gives us an easy way to alternate styles:

<li class="<%# Container.DisplayIndex % 2 == 0 ? "even" : "odd" %>">
<%# Eval("Name") %>

Just define the even and odd classes in your stylesheet and you're pretty much done.
