Hi I want to create a Linkbutton with an image.
I want it to look like this:
(Image)(Text)

I do not want the image to cover the whole button as a background. How would this be done?
Code please.

Thx

the image control has an imagealign property. but by default it should appear how you want it if you use the code given above.

Try using CSS
.imgCls
{
background: url(bgimage.jpg) no-repeat;
background-size: 75%;
}

DotNetNuke has a server control that combines an imagebutton and a linkbutton. Since the license of DotNetNuke is MIT, you can use the code for your own projects. Have a look here to see how its done: http://dotnetnuke.codeplex.com/SourceControl/changeset/view/55305#545504

the nice thing about this is that its a server control, so you can just use it as any other control (just add it to your toolbox :) )

mind you: the control has minor dependencies on dotnetnuke framework functionality, but you can easily change or remove that.
