formID does not refer to an existing Form.

If you have a link of the format "#form1" in a control contained in a user control, this method looks for a form with id=form1 in the user control. If not found, it goes up the chain of any nested user controls, and then searches for the form on the page.

NoteNote:

Scoping rules walk up, not down, the chain. If you want to browse to a form that is contained in a user control, you must use the ":" syntax used by FindControl method to refer to the form.
