FormView.BackImageUrl Property

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

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

public virtual string BackImageUrl { get; set; }
<asp:FormView BackImageUrl="String" />

Property Value

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

NoteNote

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

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