Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

public TableItemStyle HyperLinkStyle { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Web.UI.WebControls.TableItemStyle
A reference to the TableItemStyle that contains properties that define the appearance of hyperlinks.

The HyperLinkStyle property defines the appearance of hyperlinks in the Login control. This property is read-only; however, you can set the properties of the TableItemStyle object it returns. You can set these properties declaratively in the form Property-Subproperty, where Subproperty represents a property of the TableItemStyle class (for example, HyperLinkStyle-ForeColor). You can set the property programmatically in the form Property.Subproperty (for example, HyperLinkStyle.ForeColor).

Common settings include custom background color, text color, and font properties. The HyperLinkStyle property defines the appearance of the following properties:

The style settings for the HyperLinkStyle property are merged with the style settings for the Login control. Any settings made in the HyperLinkStyle property override the corresponding settings in properties of the Login control.

The following Login style properties are overridden by HyperLinkStyle settings:

When you use templates to define the appearance of the Login control, the HyperLinkStyle property has no effect.

The following code example sets hyperlinks in the Login control to green italic text by setting properties of the TableItemStyle object referenced by the HyperLinkStyle property.
