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

public string ImageUrl { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.String
The URL to a custom image that is displayed next to the text of a menu item. The default value is an empty string (""), which indicates that this property is not set.

Use the ImageUrl property to specify a custom image for the current menu item in the Menu control. This image is displayed next to the menu item text and can be in any file format (.jpg, .gif, .bmp, and so on), as long as the client's browser supports that format.

The following example demonstrates how to use the ImageUrl property to display a custom image next to the text of a menu item.
