I have a DataGrid control that I is formated and displayed as a table in HTML.
How do I retrieve the formatted html (i.e. end result of displaying DataGrid) from the DataGrid control?

More specifically, I am using the DataGrid in a UserControl - thus, is there a way of retrieving the formatted output of the DataGrid.

Cheers.

THOUGHTS OUT ALOUD:

  * Perhaps I could place within a container that has a Text property?? Does the Panel control do this or any other?

SOLUTION:
----------------


public string GetContent()
{
      //get the rendered HTML
      StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder();  
      StringWriter sw = new StringWriter(sb);
      HtmlTextWriter htw = new HtmlTextWriter(sw);
      dgRecordDataGrid.RenderControl(htw);                
      return Server.HtmlEncode(sb.ToString());
}
