VerifyRenderingInServerForm override with a UserControl derived page

Hi Experts,

I have inherited a web site to fix, so I can't change too much of it. I have to add an ability to export the gridview to excel. I have to override VerifyRenderingInServerForm in order to make this work (or do you have a better solution to this: but I'm getting the error:

'WebControl_EditAccountLogic.VerifyRenderingInServerForm(System.Web.UI.Control)': no suitable method found to override

The page derives System.Web.UI.UserControl, and I suspect this should be System.Web.UI.Page in order to override VerifyRenderingInServerForm.. Is that correct?

If that's the case, then how do I make this export to excel functionality work on this page? (Code attached)

Thank you! As ever super duper urgent. :)

Can't you just override VerifyRenderingInServerForm in the page that hosts the user control?

Hi ,

I too have the same issue with form tag. I have a custom webpart ( Visual Webaprt, its an .ascx file) that has a grid and a tree view. Now on click of an image button I need to export the contents of a grid to excel.
I am not able to override the method VerifyRenderingInServerForm because I am using a Visual webpart in sharepoint 2010. I am not able to find the codebehind of the webpage that is holding this webpart.

Can you please help me in this. I have been trying to do that from hours.
