Do you know if the gridview is ADA compliant.
I don't know but a GridView renders as an HTML table and ADA specs certainly allow tables. I assume it depends on your GridView design.
I was not aware that we have control over the rendering of the gridviews HTML?
You misunderstand. It is up to you to read the ADA specs and verify the resulting HTML is correct. If you find a server control violates ADA specs then it is up to you, the programmer, to find another solution. Web forms allow total control over the HTML
rendering so it should not be a problem. You might not be able to use a favorite server control though.
Other frameworks like MVC and Razor Pages are designed to easily handle ADA specs as the frameworks do not make assumptions about how a table should be rendered. You, the programmer, get to write the HTML however you like. This is also a common complaint
when programmer move from ASP.NET Web Forms to MVC. Web forms developers get irritated when finding they must code a table using HTML a loop.
