<Style> Element

The <Style> element represents the base Style class, and contains style characteristics common to all ASP.NET mobile controls. Classes that inherit from the Style class contain additional style characteristics specific to their associated control. The <Style> element organizes these style characteristics for a mobile control.

The <Style> element is not a control and it does not inherit from the Form class. You can use a <Style> element only within a StyleSheet control on an ASP.NET mobile Web page.

Every mobile control internally contains a Style object. However, this Style object is not exposed through public interfaces. Instead, there is a publicly accessible property for each characteristic of the style that internally references the privately contained style. For example, the MobileControl class exposes the properties Font-Name, Font-Bold, Font-Size, and so on.

Certain other controls might internally contain an alternative to the Style object. For example, the Form control contains a PagerStyle object that derives from the Style class.

You can also organize styles into a StyleSheet control. Within a style sheet, you can declare any number of style elements. Styles are declared the same way as you declare any control, with the exception that a runat="server" attribute is not required.

A style can reference properties in an external style sheet. For further information about external style sheets, see Creating New Styles.

To have a control acquire its styles from a style object in the style sheet, set the StyleReference property of its style object to the Name of the style by declaring the StyleReference attribute.

Due to the diversity of devices supported by the mobile controls, all style properties are advisory, and might or might not be honored, depending on the capabilities of the target device.
