Programmatic equivalent of <form runat="server"> </from>

When designing an ASPX page, WebControls must be contained into a tag <form runat="server"></form>.

I am trying to achieve the same effect but in a programmatic manner within a .Net library (using HttpHandlers).

Does anyone has an idea how to do that?

Thanks in advance,

Actually, I might have succeeded to solve this issue, but I am not too sure if it's the "right" way to do it.

public class MyPage : Page
    protected override void CreateChildControls()
        HtmlForm htmlForm = new HtmlForm();

        // snipped - add controls directly to 'htmlForm'

 Does anyone could confirm (or not) if it is supposed to be done that way.

Thanks in advance,

You can do it like this.

  Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
    ' Create a new HtmlForm control.
    Dim form As HtmlForm = New HtmlForm()
    form.ID = "ButtonForm"

    ' Create an HtmlButton control.
    Dim button As HtmlButton = New HtmlButton()
    button.InnerHtml = "Click Me"

    ' Register the event-handling method for the ServerClick event of the 
    ' HtmlButton control.
    AddHandler button.ServerClick, AddressOf Button_Click

    ' Add the HtmlButton control to the HtmlForm control.

    ' Add the HtmlForm to the control collection of the page.
  End Sub

What if I remove <form id="form1" runat="server"></form>
If I am creating an aspx page, which does not need to be a form, i.e. no input is taken from the user, do I need to encapsulate the whole page with in  <form1 runat="server">   What are the implications of removing the form? I realize there will be no viewstate, and again, I won't be able to accept user input, but will everything else work as expected? It seems to be so far, I've just not seen ANY examples where the form tag has been removed.

Code Behind or "<script runat="server">...code...</script>"?
Hi, I've just started learning after a number of years with VB. A lot of the examples I've been researching have placed the VB code directly onto the .aspx web page with a "<script runat="server">...code...</script>" format rather than placing the code in a "code behind" .vb page. Is there any reason for this other than the fact that you can place all the relevant code onto one example? From a .Net Studio point of view, it's seems to be far easier to use Code Behind, as one can take advantage of the "Auto Complete" features th...

<ypbp:CategoryTree id="categoryTree" runat="server"></ypbp:CategoryTree>
Hi All, I hope you can help a very confused beginner. I am writing a site that has a navigation tree configured from a database. I wanted to create a reusable piece of code that "draws" the navigation tree based on a request parameter that indicates to the code how to draw the tree. For example, the first time the page loads it will draw all the top level menu items only, and when a user clicks on one of those options it would draw all the top items and also the children of the item just clicked on etc... I want this to be reusable because I am writing an admin backend to the website as we...

Why does <form runat="server"> render <div> around viewstate hidden variable?
I can't figure out why thinks it needs to render a div around the viewstate hidden variable, or if there's any way to get it to stop doing it:<form name="aspnetForm" method="post" action="default.aspx" id="aspnetForm" class="mainform"><div><input type="hidden" name="__VIEWSTATE" id="__VIEWSTATE" value="/wEPDwULLTEwMDUyNjYzMjhkZA1/6gmEk+w4wUiViNwm8AqBxBo1" /></div> It screws up attempts to style pages in certain ways, and since there's no way to put an id or cl...

Why is "<MyControl ... />" different to "<MyControl ...> </MyControl>"
Hi I have made a CompositeControl and had it working fine. The sequence of events was: Page -> Page_Load(), MyControl -> CreateChildControls(). This was fine because I had to set a certain property in my control during page load before CreateChildControls was called. Anyway.... suddenly it all stopped working and it turned out that the sequence of events changed to MyControl -> CreateChildControls(), Page -> Page_Load(). This caused it to blow up because the property was not set. After a few hours of pulling my hair out and undoing all the recent changes I had made it turns out...
