Set ASP.NET set checkbox InputAttributes class in markup?

I just learned that <asp:checkbox CssClass="xyz"> puts the class tag in a span surrounding the rendered checkbox input element. I can add the class to the input element using server side code such as:

MyCheckbox.InputAttributes("class") = "xyz"

Is it possible to do this somehow directly from the aspx markup?

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

No, you can do that in the Checkbox markup declaration, but you can change your CSS like this


THIS WILL AFFECT THE CHECKBOX
.xyz
{
      background-color: blue;
      }

THIS WILL AFFECT THE DISPLAYED TEXT
.xyz label
{
      background-color: Red;
      }

Hope that helps

I'm using the class for jquery statements so it pretty much has to be on the element itself. Thanks anyway. Knowing it can't be done is a sufficient answer.
