CssClass confusion

Greetings all

I am trying to understand ..

1.  What is the difference between the CLASS property of HTML controls and the CSSCLASS property of
     ASP.Net controls? If I create a class in my CSS file can I say "<ASPxxxxx CssClass="myClass" ?

2. When trying to set up classes for ASP controls (I am using the VS005 CSS editor (right-click on solution
    explorer... Add new item ... Select CSS Style sheet) there are properties which aren't supported (eg. if
    I try set up the "PasswordLabelText" property of the login control or, "ImageUrl" of the ASP HyperLink. I
   get  told "'PasswordLabelText' is not  a  known CSS property name."). Why is this? Do I code these
   inline (horrid! I will have to do that in more  than one place, which is why I wanted to use a class).

In advance, thanks!!

HI There,

>> 1.  What is the difference between the CLASS property of HTML controls and the CSSCLASS property of
     ASP.Net controls? If I create a class in my CSS file can I say "<ASPxxxxx CssClass="myClass" ?

1. They are in effect the same. Think of them as attributes to a node class="myclassname" or cssclass="myclassname"

>> 
     ASP.Net controls? If I create a class in my CSS file can I say "<ASPxxxxx CssClass="myClass" ?

No. You can:

1. create an external css file and then have a class in it that is referenced by the control's css class property.
2. you can create themes which enable you to apply the css on a global level.


>> 2. When trying to set up classes for ASP controls (I am using the VS005 CSS editor (right-click on solution

    I try set up the "PasswordLabelText" property of the login control or, "ImageUrl" of the ASP HyperLink. I

use one of the methods I have described above.

1) No difference.

2) Go through this tutorial on how to do it: http://www.beansoftware.com/ASP.NET-Tutorials/CSS-ASP.NET.aspx

DigitalZo -- Thanks for the info.  Will go through the Tuts this afternoon and post back.

MrAgile --  hope this isn't too much of a dumb question (which probably means that it is) -- by external, do you mean create something like a textfile (eg with NotePad) and then link that to my application?

Tks!
