Hi,

I have the following code

asp.net
<div class="actualImageVid">
                    <a href="ShowCommentsforVideos.aspx?Video=<%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"Video_ID")%>">
                        <asp:Image ID="imgStartUpImagePath" runat="server" align="left" ImageUrl='<%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"StartUpImagePath")%>' />
                    </a>
                </div>

but when i run the page i find that it has the code below setting border to 0
<img id="ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_ListView1_ctrl0_ctl02_imgStartUpImagePath" align="left" style="border-width: 0px;" src="x.jpg"/>

which means that what i set in the css for the border property get over ridden I havenot used in line styling so how to i get rid of this border on the content placeholder

please help

Thanks,

I'm not sure how to remove the "border-width: 0px" so that it is possible to use css, however you can set the border on the image with the properties
BorderWidth, BorderColor and BorderStyle or you can use a regular img html tag if you don't have to access the object from codebehind.

<div class="actualImageVid">
   <a href="ShowCommentsforVideos.aspx?Video=<%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"Video_ID")%>">
      <img style="float: left;" src='<%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"StartUpImagePath")%>' />
   </a>
</div>

hi jp j78,

I think i might need to use an asp:image control as my backend c# has the following code

 ListViewItem eitm = e.Item;
        object MyColumnValue = ((DataRowView)(((ListViewDataItem)(eitm)).DataItem)).Row["StartUpImagePath"];

       
        Image image = (Image)e.Item.FindControl("imgStartUpImagePath");
        string filePath = MyColumnValue.ToString(); ;

        FileInfo fileInfo = new FileInfo(filePath);

        //append the '\' before the directory name

        DirectoryInfo directoryInfo = new DirectoryInfo(fileInfo.DirectoryName);

        string parentDir = string.Format(@"\{0}", directoryInfo.Parent);
        image.ImageUrl = "~" + (filePath.Substring(filePath.IndexOf(parentDir)));

this lets me trim off certain things of the string that comes out the database and put in fromt a ~ so it can be the root of the foler

Thanks,

R8VI

You can use a function on the img tag to do this...
(I'm not a C# programmer so there might be some errors, but I hope you get the concept.)
<div class="actualImageVid">
   <a href="ShowCommentsforVideos.aspx?Video=<%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"Video_ID")%>">
      <img style="float: left;" src='<%#GetImageUrl(DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"StartUpImagePath"))%>' />
   </a>
</div>
 
public string GetImageUrl(string filePath)
{
        FileInfo fileInfo = new FileInfo(filePath);
 
        //append the '\' before the directory name
 
        DirectoryInfo directoryInfo = new DirectoryInfo(fileInfo.DirectoryName);
 
        string parentDir = string.Format(@"\{0}", directoryInfo.Parent);
        return "~" + (filePath.Substring(filePath.IndexOf(parentDir)));
}

No, you don't have style for the image. Your CSS is set on the <div> tag, not on the image control.
