If you left the (ID) of the GridView as GridView1 then you should be able to find <div class="AspNet-GridView" id="GridView1"> in the source when you run the page.   You can use the class to style the GridView.  You should also be able to find other classes throughout the source. 

If you changed the (ID) of the GridView, you can still check the source to see what classes to style.

If your page source is not showing any classes, then I expect your adapters are not installed correctly.

 i do not see the classes in the source code. My website is not a CSS friendly website but there is a reference added to CSS Friendly. Also there is a CSSControlAdapters.Browser in App_Browsers.

Is there a way I can define and use classes in CSS to style this Gridview?

    border-right: 2px solid #A7A6AA;
    border-bottom: 2px solid #A7A6AA;
    border-left: 2px solid white;
    border-top: 2px solid white;
    padding: 4px;

    background-color: #F7F6F3;
    color: #333333;

    background-color: #FFFFFF;

            <asp:Parameter DefaultValue="220" Name="CaseID" Type="Int32" />

Is CSS Control Adapters compatible with WebPart and WebPartZone controls?
Both WebPart and WebPartZone ultimately derive from WebControl, so it seems like this would work, but before I got into it deeply, was curious if anyone had tried it and if there are any issues? I don't think there is an esay way to make it works. This was a reply from Scott Guthrie: Unfortunately I don't think there is a super easy way to override WebParts -- since some of the layout does assume tables (since the CSS to-do this positioning with divs isn't super easy).  We are going to look at whether it is possible to build another control adapter for webparts in the f...

What is the advantage of the CSS control adapter for the gridview?
 The Grid View has built in styling capabilities with the "HeaderStyle-CssClass" and the "ItemStyle-CssClass" attributes.  Why sould someone want to use the CSS Friendly Control Adapter for this if it has this built in capability?  The html that it produces via the adapter doesn't seem that much better than the html that it produces normally.  Is the only reason to use the adapter on the Grid View so that the output can be manually changed?  For instance,  the table that is put out by the Grid View can canged into <divs>.  ...

Reagrding using FILTER in (MenuExample.css) CSS adapter classes for Menu control
Hello everyone, Whenever I use filter: in any of the CSS calss for the MENU control using CSS adapters, it only renders the first level of the menu, all subsequent levels are not even displayed.

CSS Friendly Control Adapters + GridView + Update Panel = Problem
Hi everyone,I'm using a gridview control that's bound to an object data source.  I have a couple of controls to filter the data in the gridview, and I'm able to sort and page through the data. Placing it in an UpdatePanel gives me partial page rendering and the whole page doesn't refresh - Great.  Expected behaviour and it all works very well. However, introduce a Control Adapter into the mix (http://www.asp.net/cssadapters/) and Update Panel doesn't work at all - with the whole page refreshing. If anybody can offer any help, I'd be very grateful.  I want both A...
