Why add the src by adding to the Attributes collection? The HtmlImage class exposes the Src property which you can assign to:

anchorCarousel.Src = Server.MapPath("/Assets/images/products/mfglogos/3M_LOGO.jpg")

Open in new window


Side comment: Same as the above:  You shouldn't have to do the add attribute logic in order to set the anchor's HREF--there should be a property named Href which can use.

Hello,

You have to put one literal control. Then after pass the ul and li into this literal like this.

literal.Text = "<ul><li></li></ul>"

try to add <image> inside the liToAdd control.
