DetailsView.BackImageUrl Property

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

Namespace:  System.Web.UI.WebControls
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)
public virtual string BackImageUrl { get; set; }
<asp:DetailsView BackImageUrl="String" />

Property Value

Type: System.String
The URL to an image to display in the background of the DetailsView 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 DetailsView control.

NoteNote

If the specified image is smaller than the DetailsView 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 DetailsView control. You must provide your own image for this example to work.
