converting a vs 2003 ap to vs 2010

i have a datagrid control which i was expecting to run into problems with when i converted to 2010.

i created a 2010 solution and did an add existing web site to pull in the 2003 ap.  I was expecting the conversion wizard to come up but it didn't.  It came in without errors just a bunch of warnings.  So the ap runs fine...datagrid shows and everything.

So i'm wondering if there is a setting somewhere...maybe its my web.config? that is allowing this control to work.  I don't see the datagrid control in my toolbox, but if i view in design pane the control shows up fine.  

thanks

No.  For an ASP.Net app, unless you changed the underlying .NET Framework, there's no coversion necessary.

Yes, in the Property Pages for the web site, in the "Build" section, set the Target Framework to whatever you want to use.

I thought other aps I converted to .NET 3.5 chocked with datagrid.  Was it not allowed in 3.5 but now allowed in 4?  Funny I don't see it under the toolbox??

The <asp:datagrid> doesn't show up in the default toolbox, but it's still a valid control.

And it exists in 3.5 as well. I think its the DataGrid in winforms that was replaced by DataGridView.
