Hello All
i am getting A page can have only one server-side Form tag. on exporting grid view in excel in grid view is on content page with master page and master page has only one form tag.
for exporting i have done the following code.

               Response.ContentType = "application/vnd.xls";

               StringWriter swriter = new StringWriter();
               HtmlTextWriter hwriter = new HtmlTextWriter(swriter);

               HtmlForm frm = new HtmlForm();
               frm.Attributes["runat"] = "server";


public override void VerifyRenderingInServerForm(Control control)

plz help me.

Perhaps the code you have written here is under code behind file of the content page. So think that, here you have created a server side form and there is server side form on Master page. so when you try to render this page then this form loads in another form. which is not allowed. Does this make sense?

Though I'm not sure whether it'll work or not (don't blame me), I can devise a way. Just try it. And let me know whether its works or not.
Assign a ID to your MasterPage Form [ie. <form runat="server" id="TestForm">]

Now use this form in you content form instead of creating a new one.
[ie. this.Master.FindControl("TestForm")]

thanks now it working
Try this:
Comment out the following:
//public override void VerifyRenderingInServerForm(Control control)

Compiler might be getting confused because of it. See if this works.
