Writing outside <form></form> ?

Is it possible to write characters outside the form tag? I know, you can't insert controls there, but is it just possible to insert ordinary ascii characters?

Yes you can.  Normal HTML tags can be outside of the <Form> tag.  What do you have in mind in relation to this question?

Of course I meant how to do that programmaticaly, with asp.net.

I believe you can, but haven't tried it.  For example, using Page.Controls collection should be possible to achieve this since your Form resides in this collection.  Again, I haven't tried this so I'm not sure what problems, if any, you will face.  Just be sure to add HTML controls.

That's not entierly correct. You can indeed insert controls outside the form tag, but only those that cannot cause postbacks. So, a container control like a PlaceHolder you can use outside the form tag, while for instance a button or a textbox must be placed inside a form tag.

If you place this outside the form tag:
<asp:PlaceHolder ID="myPlaceHolder" runat="server">
You could add controls to it from code behing like this:
myPlaceHolder.Controls.Add(new LiteralControl("<strong>My Literal Control</strong"));

Mike Chan You cannot submit a <form> to another page if you have a RunAt="Server" in the form tag.

<form></form>'s Default Button??

Calling server function outside the form element messes up the hierarchy (like <title> <% myTitle %> <title> )
I'm pretty new to internet development, haven't done any prior to .net, so I might be missing something to obvious.. From what I understand Page.Controls is a collection of 3 elements - literal control, form & anoether litteral control I have a code like this "HtmlForm htmlForm =(HtmlForm) Page.Controls[1];" in my base page, which is inherrited by multiple pages. However, if I have a server side function call outside the <Form></Form> element (like this "<title> <% myTitle %> <title> ") I no longer have a collection of 3 elements...

Comparison Web Form <-> Mobile Web Form
Hi all,Is there any overview of the (dis-)advantages using Mobile Web Forms compared with normal Web Form? I know I need to use Mobile Web Form if it should be accessible with handhelds, but does it make sense using Mobile web Form when the webpage should not be available for handhelds?Thanks!      The benefit on using the mobile web form is the ability to use the mobile controls that had adaptive rendering for different handsets. The built in features of controls like the objectlist and selectionlist are great and and form paging is also a neat thing.If you are not dev...

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.
