I'm dynamically building an html table in the code behind and need to render it into html so that I can use that also in the code behind.  I'm tyring to use the control.RenderControl() method but I'm having a hard time.

Below is what I've tried so far.

But the HtmlTextWriter must have a System.IO.TextWriter object passed to it.  When I try to create a System.IO.TextWriter object I get an error saying that I cannot create a new instance of a must inherit class.

What is the easiest way of doing what I'm trying to do here.
writer = New HtmlTextWriter()
tbl.RenderControl(writer)
Dim strTest As String = writer.ToString

Open in new window
