Hi

i am writing a basket on several pages using a panel in the aspx and a sub that builds/populates the table and adds it to the panel. this is fine.
i now need to send the same table in an HTML email, but want to use the same method.

ive tried returning the table as a string, but this just produces 'System.Web.UI.WebControls.Table'

any ideas?

You can use the RenderControl method of the table to write the contents to HTML.

Dim sb As New System.Text.StringBuilder
Dim ht As New System.Web.UI.HtmlTextWriter(New System.IO.StringWriter(sb))
table.RenderControl(ht)
Dim html As String = ht.InnerWriter.ToString

Open in new window
