Style Class

Organizes style characteristics of an ASP.NET mobile control.

Namespace:  System.Web.UI.MobileControls
Assembly:  System.Web.Mobile (in System.Web.Mobile.dll)

[AspNetHostingPermissionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, Level = AspNetHostingPermissionLevel.Minimal)]
[AspNetHostingPermissionAttribute(SecurityAction.InheritanceDemand, Level = AspNetHostingPermissionLevel.Minimal)]
public class Style : IParserAccessor, ITemplateable, 
	IStateManager, ICloneable

The base Style class contains style characteristics common to all mobile controls. Classes that inherit from the Style class contain additional style characteristics specific to their associated control.

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

The following example demonstrates three user-defined styles in a StyleSheet object. A SelectionList object holds three values that correspond to the three defined styles. The OnClick command event calls the SelectStyle function, which changes the StyleReference property of the TextView object.

<%@ Page Language="C#" 
    Inherits="System.Web.UI.MobileControls.MobilePage" %>
<%@ Register TagPrefix="mobile" 
    Assembly="System.Web.Mobile" %>

<script runat="server">
    void SelectStyle(object sender, EventArgs e)
        // Retrieve the style name as a string.
        String myStyle = SelectionList1.Selection.ToString();
        // Match the style name and apply the style to TextView1. 
        switch (myStyle)
            case "hot":
                TextView1.StyleReference = "Style1";
            case "medium":
                TextView1.StyleReference = "Style2";
            case "mild":
                TextView1.StyleReference = "Style3";
