HyperLink.ImageUrl Property

Gets or sets the path to an image to display for the HyperLink control.

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

[BindableAttribute(true)]
public virtual string ImageUrl { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.String
The path to the image to display for the HyperLink control. The default value is an empty string ("").

The HyperLink control can be displayed as text or an image. Use the ImageUrl property to specify an image to display for the HyperLink control.

NoteNote

If both the Text and ImageUrl properties are set, the ImageUrl property takes precedence. If the image is unavailable, the text in the Text property is displayed. In browsers that support ToolTip functionality, the Text property also becomes the ToolTip.

The following example demonstrates how to set the ImageUrl property to specify the path to the image to display.
