Hyperlink Image in CSS or skin for theme

Posted on 2007-11-20
Last Modified: 2008-02-01
I've created several themes using css and skins.

In my master page, I want to have the logo dependent upon the current theme being used. So within each theme directory, I have a logo named: Logo.gif

Currently, I just have this within the master page.

                        <a href="<%= ResolveClientUrl("~/default.asp")%>">
                    <img src='<%= ResolveClientUrl("logo.gif")%>' width='228'
                                height='77' style='border: none'></a></td>

How do I change it to setup the logo.gif within the skin or style sheet, and then display it (hyperlinked as above) within my master page?

If you specify the image as a background in the css, the browser will get the image relative to the css file instead of relative to the page.

If you put the logo image in the theme filder where the css file is, this will use it:
.Logo { width: 228px; height: 77px; background: url(logo.gif); }
<a href="<%= ResolveClientUrl("~/default.asp")%>" class="Logo"></a>

hmmm. I tried this:

<asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink1" runat="server" CssClass="Logo" NavigateUrl="~/Default.aspx">[HyperLink1]</asp:HyperLink>

and this:

<a href="<%= ResolveClientUrl("~/default.asp")%>" class="Logo"></a>

This does display the logo, but no hyperlink:

                    <div class="Logo"></div>

What am I doing wrong?

Ah, I missed that the link has to be a block element in order for one to specify the size.
.Logo { display: block; width: 228px; height: 77px; background: url(logo.gif); }
