Default Help with Chapter 15

I am working through the second try it out when I try to view the Genres.aspx page in the browser this is the error message i get.

Server Error in '/' Application.

Parser Error
Description: An error occurred during the parsing of a resource required to service this request. Please review the following specific parse error details and modify your source file appropriately.

Parser Error Message: The 'ID' property of a control type System.Web.UI.WebControls.GridView cannot be applied through a control skin.

Source Error:

Line 1: <asp:GridView ID="GridView1" runat="server" CssClass="GridView">
Line 2: <HeaderStyle CssClass="GridViewHeaderStyle" />
Line 3: <PagerStyle CssClass="GridViewPagerStyle" />

Source File: /App_Themes/Management/GridView.skin Line: 1

It seems it is telling me that this is not a proper use of the asp tag GridView am I doing something wrong?

do I need a using statement in the skin file

<asp:GridView ID="GridView1" runat="server" CssClass="GridView">
  <HeaderStyle CssClass="GridViewHeaderStyle" />
  <PagerStyle CssClass="GridViewPagerStyle" />
  <SortedAscendingHeaderStyle CssClass="GridViewSortedAscendingHeaderStyle" />
  <SortedDescendingHeaderStyle CssClass="GridViewSortedDescendingHeaderStyle" />
is the current of my GridView.skin

I also get this warning in the error list window

Warning 1 E:\Websites\BegASPNET\App_Themes\Management\GridVi ew.skin: ASP.NET runtime error: There is no build provider registered for the extension '.skin'. You can register one in the <compilation><buildProviders> section in machine.config or web.config. Make sure is has a BuildProviderAppliesToAttribute attribute which includes the value 'Web' or 'All'. E:\Websites\BegASPNET\App_Themes\Management\GridVi ew.skin 1 1 E:\Websites\BegASPNET\

Hi there,

For the error, take a look at page 233. Controls defined in a Skin file can't have ID attributes.

For the build warning, take a look at page 234....
