linking cascading style sheet

  Asked By: Francisca    Date: Jun 03    Category: Asp.net    Views: 941

I am trying to link a css to my project, but I am having some problems. I
created a styles.ascx file which contains this code:

<% Control Language="vb"%>


Response.Write("<link rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'


Then I did this to the page I wanted to use the css in:

<%Register TagPrefix="stylesheet" TagName="Style" Src="Styles.ascx"%>


<stylesheet:Style Runat="server"></stylesheet:style>


the pages run but it doesn't apply the style sheet. Anyone know any tricks to
making this work.

First, why are you doing this with a User Control?
It would be much easier to access the StyleSheet
you wanted  to use from a database. Let's say you
had a list of StyleSheets in a database table and
you wanted to change the style  you used on your
site every week.

You could place a LiteralControl in the Head section
of your aspx file  and set it's text in the codebehind
Literal1.Text = "<link rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'

This information could be dynamically provided
from either a database or and XML file. You could
have a form which allowed you to change the
StyleSheet you wanted to use when your page  loaded.
