Style.CssClass Property

Gets or sets the cascading style sheet (CSS) class rendered by the Web server control on the client.

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

public string CssClass { get; set; }
/** @property */
public String get_CssClass ()

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

public function get CssClass () : String

public function set CssClass (value : String)

Property Value

The CSS class rendered by the Web server control on the client. The default is String.Empty.

Use the CssClass property to specify the CSS class to render on the client for the Web server control. This property will render on browsers for all controls. It will always be rendered as the class attribute, regardless of the browser.

For example, suppose you have the following Web server control declaration:

<asp:TextBox id="TextBox1" ForeColor="Red" CssClass="class1" />

The following HTML is rendered on the client for the previous Web server control declaration:

<input type=text class="class1" style="ForeColor:red">

On browsers that do not support CSS, setting the CssClass property will have no effect.
