Hi guys, i currently have a css file, which is referenced from my config file, this works fine in firefox 2 and 3, google chrome, opera, safari and ie7, however when i view it in ie6 it looks awful, so i have set up a theme for ie6. Now what i need to do is have some piece of code that changes the line of code in the config file to the theme for ie6 if the users browser is ie6 or below, this bit of code can go into my masterpage file of course, does anyone have an idea of how to do this in .net, im programming in c#

Thanks

Hi Ianaldo.

Take a look at http://forums.asp.net/t/1024266.aspx - it has basically the same problem you would like to take care of.

As for browser detection, see http://nlakkakula.wordpress.com/2008/09/11/browser-detection-in-code-behind-aspnet/

This is really a simple means.  Also you can do much the same thing from clientside, and add a new stylesheet element to the DOM, and set the source via Ajax, but I don't have specific information on hand on how to take that approach.

I hope this helps,

Geoff
