Can you post the SendTenderAlert function code? What is the problem there?

function SendTenderAlert is just for sending mail the problem is how to write data in html template which i am getting in var detail = BLLMailAlert.GetUserAllDetail(usr.AlertID);

Like if there are only few fields i can append it in string builder but the detail i am getting is List and i can't use gridview as i am working on console application
You can make one html table by looping through the results.

Hey Victor
To Send HTML Template in Console Application You Can use String Builder and StreamReader and try to Append and replace the Content For more Detail See this StringBuilder.Append Method and StringBuilder.Replace Method
So your Code will be Like
//create String Builder
var sbMail = new StringBuilder();
//for iteration You can use foreach 
foreach(--Your Condition--)
  using (var sReader = new StreamReader(TemplatePath))
     sbMail.Replace("{YourTitle}", DataSource.YourTitle);

now in html template
try something Like that

that will replace {YourTitle} and Append the next {YourTitle} in the Mail
Hop That Helps..........

You can try somthing like this to mak your mail body nice ...... :D

string GetBody()
   string PreDefinedMailFormat = @"<html>
                                        <span style='font-size:12px;'><span style='font-family:verdana,geneva,sans-serif;'>Hi {1} {2},</span></span></div>
                                        <span style='font-size:12px;'><span style='font-family:verdana,geneva,sans-serif;'><strong>Congratulations!</strong> {0} has received and accepted your invitation.</span></span></div>

   string MailReceiverFName = "Moumit";
   string MailReceiverLName = "Mondal";
   string MailSenderName = "KAKA";

            //Final mail body
   string MailBody = string.Format(PreDefinedMailFormat, MailSenderName, MailReceiverFName, MailReceiverLName);
   return MailBody;

@Moumit Mondal the problem is i am getting data in List so i need something like gridview in Console application
Moumit Mondal 28-Nov-13 5:30am    
Whys that??? Sorry @V1CT0R. your problem is not clear to me ... :(
V1CT0R. 28-Nov-13 10:58am    
well suppose I am getting a List Of Customer in That List there are approx 15-20 Customer
and each user has some details like 6 or 7 fields now as we can bind them simply in GridView
by DataBind method and write the table column's name BoundField's DataField I want to do similar thing in Console application........
Moumit Mondal 29-Nov-13 8:23am    
In that case it's out of my hands :( ... I did not worked in console ... But if you wish then can use trick like this...

void ShowData(DataTable dt)

foreach (DataColumn item in dt.Columns)


for (int i = 0; i < dt.Rows.Count; i++)
for (int j = 0; j < dt.Columns.Count; j++)

its better to use HTML template rather than saving Template in database
