hi there,
i've come across a problem that I cant figure out looking through the options for a <div id="test" runat="server">..

I need to dynamically set a background-image to a <div>.

i have tried the following

<div <literal></literal>>
  my content
</div>

literal1.text = "style:background-image...";

(this wouldnt be a nice way of doing even if it worked)

i've also tried

<div id="panel1" runat="server">

code behind:
        panel1.ApplyStyleSheetSkin = "background-image: url()";

not sure how to use ApplyStyleSheetSkin but that was my best attempt

I could write the entire div out using a literal control I guess, like so,

<literal></literal>

literal1.text = "<div style=background-image:url...>content</div>";

but i assume there's a nicer way of doing it?  
enlighten me!
thank,

You can set the background image by setting the style attribute of the div element:
        Dim strImageUrl As String = "URL_To_Image"
        panel1.Attributes.Add("style", "background-image=url(" & strImageUrl & ")")

Alternatively, you can remove the runat in the div:

<div id="panel1" style="background-image=url(<%=strImageURL%>)" />

and then set the variable up in the code:

Public strImageUrl As String

and then set that to anything you require.
