    Hi PaulRaj,

    If you are calling gridview Rendercontrol at runtime then that server control was rendered outside of form tag, so that only it's giving this error, to avoid this error I request you to override VerifyRenderingInServerForm.

    public override void VerifyRenderingInServerForm(Control control)


    If you still have any questions please let me know.

    Give respect to your work, Instead of trying to impress your boss.

    Hi Paul raj.S .

    Place your controls inside the form tag and for the controls you should mention runat="server" like below.


    <asp: ContentPlaceHolder id="ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_grd
    " runat="server" />

    Hai Paul raj.S,
    The error clearly says "Control 'ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_grd' of type 'GridView' must be placed inside a form tag with runat=server."
    It means you have not kept the grid control inside the form tag. You need to check that your master page and content page are rendered correctly.
    Hope it will be helpful to you.

    If you use control without or outside form tag it will throw the error. Whenever you use any control always put it inside a form tag with runat="server" attribute.
    If you are unable to do something properly for the first time, call it Version 1.0!

    Thanks & Regards,
