GridView.BackImageUrl Property

Note: This property is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Gets or sets the URL to an image to display in the background of a GridView control.

Namespace: System.Web.UI.WebControls
Assembly: System.Web (in system.web.dll)

public virtual string BackImageUrl { get; set; }
/** @property */
public String get_BackImageUrl ()

/** @property */
public void set_BackImageUrl (String value)

public function get BackImageUrl () : String

public function set BackImageUrl (value : String)

Property Value

The URL of an image to display in the background of the GridView control. The default is an empty string (""), which indicates that this property is not set.

Use the BackImageUrl property to specify the URL to an image to display in the background of a GridView control.

NoteNote

If the specified image is smaller than the GridView control, the image is tiled to fill in the background. If the image is larger than the control, the image is cropped.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the BackImageUrl property to display a custom image in the background of a GridView control.


<%@ Page language="C#" %>

<html>
  <body>
    <form runat="server">
        
      <h3>GridView BackImageUrl Example</h3>

      <asp:gridview id="CustomersGridView" 
        datasourceid="CustomersSource" 
        autogeneratecolumns="true"
        emptydatatext="No data available." 
        backimageurl="~/images/logo.jpg" 
        runat="server">
                
      </asp:gridview>
            
      <!-- This example uses Microsoft SQL Server and connects  -->
      <!-- to the Northwind sample database. Use an ASP.NET     -->
      <!-- expression to retrieve the connection string value   -->
      <!-- from the Web.config file.                            -->
      <asp:sqldatasource id="CustomersSource"
        selectcommand="Select [CustomerID], [CompanyName], [Address], [City], [PostalCode], [Country] From [Customers]"
