Dynamically Loading UserControl Containing DataBound Controls

Hi All,

I have created a user control which consists of a Page_Load event which binds data from SQL Server into several Gridview controls.

If I add this control into an aspx page at design time then this runs fine and returns the gridview correctly.

I am then trying to use the content of this UserControl as an email template (attached is the code) but what I am finding is the markup of the control is showing correctly within the delivered email but any databound data controls arent showing so its as though the page_load even isn't being fired.

Can anyone suggest how to fix this?

Thanks,

Rit
StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder();
UserControl ctrltmp = new UserControl();
Control ctrl = ctrltmp.LoadControl("~/controls/mail/mail_news_summary.ascx");

StringWriter sw = new StringWriter(sb);
Html32TextWriter htw = new Html32TextWriter(sw);
ctrl.RenderControl(htw);

string strBody = sb.ToString();


MailAddress from = new MailAddress("enquiries@mydomain.com");
MailAddress to = new MailAddress("me@mydomain.com");
MailMessage message = new MailMessage(from, to);
message.Subject = "Test Email Send";
message.Body = strBody;
message.BodyEncoding = Encoding.ASCII;
message.IsBodyHtml = true;

SmtpClient mySmtpClient = new SmtpClient();
mySmtpClient.UseDefaultCredentials = true;

try
{
    mySmtpClient.Send(message);
}
catch (Exception ex)
{
    MessageBox.Show(string.Format("Exception caught: {0}", ex.ToString()));
}
