'ImageButton' Must Be Placed Inside A Form Tag With Runat=server?
Feb 1, 2010
I've got the ImageButton wrapped inside a form tag with runat="server" but STILL getting this error at runtime. The form tag is at the very beginning (before my table) and end tag is at the end (after the table).
Since upgrading to VS2010, I've been having issuse up on issues with my apps. Some are pure asp.net web sites, other are webpats that are eventually be converted to a Sharepoint web part.
In one of these webparts, I'm building a tab control on the fly. It fetches data from the table via bll/dal. On my dev box I build this in the code file of the default.aspx file and rendering it in a panel, except that it get the said error. I'm quite sure this is how I've done it in VS2008, so I don't know what is going on here - see my code below.
I have a user control that employs many other controls (GridView, Images, Ajax Tool kit extenders, etc.). When called the RenderControl() method there is the dreaded "<control> must be placed inside a form tag with runat=server". Seems many people have run into this and suggest overriding erifyRenderingInServerForm on the page the control sits in. I tried to do this, but ran into other issues (for example the ajax control tool kit calendar extender started to complain about the extender not being registered properly).
When a form with a run at server is added there will be two forms with runat server and another error occurs.The details of the error are as follows.Control 'ctl00_TextBox1' of type 'TextBox' must be placed inside a form tag with runat=server.

I have to add some ajax to a site, and i can see that in the master page they are using traditional tag <form id="form1" action="ExternalSite.com?a=b" name="test">and I get a tag incorrectly formed when I add a runat="server" within the form tag - but without it I can't have a valid scriptmanager?
I'm trying to upload files to Amazon. In their simple example, it's an HTML page with a bunch of hidden fields that pass the data needed. The problem is when I create that form in ASP.NET, I, inevitably, end up with a few extra hidden fields i.e. __VIEWSTATE and __VIEWSTATEENCRYPTED at the very least -- and that after setting EnableViewState to false on the page. No matter what I do, these two hidden fields are there. I've read some articles that indicate that I have no way of removing them from the page unless I can remove the <form runat="server"> all together.
I can imagine what the answer will be but I have to ask: is there a way to remove the form tag from an aspx page?
I assume the answer will be "No". Then my follow up question is: how am I going to upload a file to Amazon S3 using an aspx page?
Now, some may suggest that I should use a simple HTML page. Then my issue would be this: there are a whole bunch of parameters I need to get by making an API call first -- they're the ones that end up in those hidden fields. How can I upload my files without losing this server side functionality that I need in order to make the API call?
Here's what that upload form looks like -- according to Amazon:
I am a bit confused about the significance of the <form runat="server"> on a page, and its effect on Page and Control life cycles.
For long, I have eliminated any Postbacks or Viewstate from my web forms. I just use web forms to render (often very very complex) UI to the client (composed of server-side controls as well as ExtJs or jQuery widgets etc).
After the UI renders, all interaction with server is asynchronous through web-services or http handlers. So, lately I have started omitting the <form runat="server"> tage also from my web forms.
And to my surprise, the code has NOT broken. The life-cycle events are generated normally on all controls, they have access to normal ASP.NET processing pipeline, and they render perfect;y. As there are no Postbacks, I do not need ViewState or control events like click etc.
So, can somebody tell me if there's any material difference that <form runat="server"> would make in my scenario, or to ASP.NET page/control life-cycle??
I am having a custom ASPX page with following structure. Its having 2 update panel and I have a ImageButton outside them. The two UpdatPanel are triggered by this ImageButton.The Problem is whenever user clicks the Imagebutton, the image in the ImageButton is getting reloaded...it disappears and the reappears. I am not able to figure out why the postback is happening when the imagebutton is place outside UpdatePanel. Is it because I am using this Imagebutton for triggering AsyncPostBack in UpdatePanel?
I have GridView on my asp.net page, one column in that grid is ImageButton (TemplateField with ID="imbReserve"). On click on that button I want to show PopUp, but when I put TargetControlId="imbReserve" I get error message " A control with ID 'imbReserve' could not be found". How to achieve this, on click on button inside Grid show PopUp ?
have a created a dynamic solarsystem map. Basically I have a updatepanel which inside I programattically create imagebuttons of the 'planets'. These imagebuttons are given a Command event and when clicked the idea is to set the clicked planet in question as the parent and redisplay the map.Inside the command event I pass in the ID of the planet and this sets a session varible. The panel load event is then designed to use this session varible to set the new parent and display the child 'moons'
see the following code. How do I access the imageButton (or any other control I may happen to have) within the listView? In this case, I'd like to change the image of the imagebutton based on certain conditions in the code behind file while the listview is being populated.
When I use an anchor tag on an aspx page as below,
<a href="~/pages/page.aspx?id=<%= ServervariableName %>"> test </a>
it will get the variable value correctly assigned to id but it won't route the page correctly as the ~ will not be evaluated without the runat="server" attribute on the 'a' tag. But once I add the runat server attribute, it does not evaluate the servervariable name anymore.. how this works or what I should do to take care of both?
