I'm having difficulties in embedding gridview content in email notification, RenderControl() doesn;t work. The current output is: "New Offer: System.Web.UI.HtmlTextWriter"
My code attached. Does it matter that my gridview is inside a hidden div?
Thanks
<div id="divShowDetails" style="display:none">
            <b>Detalii oferta:</b>
            <asp:GridView 
                ID="csOfferMV" AllowPaging="false" runat="server" 
                AutoGenerateColumns="false">                                                        
                <HeaderStyle CssClass="HeaderStyle" />    
                <RowStyle CssClass="RowStyle" />                  
                <AlternatingRowStyle CssClass="AlternateRowStyle" /> 
                <SelectedRowStyle CssClass="SelectedRowStyle" />
-------------------------------------------------
System.Net.Mail.MailMessage ms = new System.Net.Mail.MailMessage();
                System.Text.StringBuilder sb = new System.Text.StringBuilder();
                ms.To.Add(new System.Net.Mail.MailAddress(userEmail));
                ms.CC.Add(new System.Net.Mail.MailAddress(managerEmail));
csOfferMV.DataSource = (DataTable)Session["CustomOfferMV"];
                csOfferMV.DataBind();
                StringWriter sw = new StringWriter(sb);
                HtmlTextWriter hw = new HtmlTextWriter(sw);
                csOfferMV.RenderControl(hw);
sb.Append(@"Customer Id: <b>" + lblCustomerId.Text + "</b>; Caz Id: <b>" + Session["CurrentCase"].ToString() + "</b>,<br/>");
sb.Append(@"<b>New Offer: " + hw + "</b><br/>");

As you see I posted it from EE Mobile. My mobile only supports WAP and I have a restriction of 120 characters per post. So can't help it. :(
