Hi,
Is there any specific reason for assigning background color to div from code behind?

Better approach is using CSS.

Here is exmple:

<html>
<head>
<style type="text/css">
.testDiv {background-image:url('paper.gif');}
</style>
</head>

<body>
<h1>Hello World!</h1>
<div class='testDiv' style='height:200px;'>test data in div
</div>
</body>
</html>

Open in new window


Is still you want to use it from code behind then you have to make that div as server side control so that you can access it from code behind or simply you can take Panel control and use it's "BackImageUrl" property to assign background image.

Add runat="server" and then you will be able to access it in your code behind file:-

<div id="frontDiv" style="float:left;" runat="server">

Next check that this url does show up the image and not 404 error.

Declare the DIV as server side control:

<div id="frontDiv" runat="server" style="float:left;" />


Now in the code behind file use below code:

frontDiv.Attributes.Add("style", @"background-Image:url(""" + Server.MapPath("/Templates/Products/POD/VCA/dog.JPG") + @""");

Sorry, the code behind needs to be written as below:

frontDiv.Attributes.Add("style", @"background-Image:url(""" + Server.MapPath("~/Templates/Products/POD/VCA/dog.JPG") + @""");

Here the Templates directory should be in your root.
