The css file is under App_Themes folder.
I am referring it in web.config file by using this line  <pages theme="Default_Theme">

Is there anything else I need to do.

I am referring the css file in .ascx file.
<%@ Control Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeBehind="footerPage.ascx.cs" Inherits="Products.footerPage" %>
    <link href="~/css/Products.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />


I am confused with the links you sent.
Please let me know what to do. I am  already refering it in .ascx file.

What are your style rules.
If you're using id selectors you're (probably) screwed; because the server ids are different than the ids on the client.
You're better of with a class selector

Specify the CssClass property on your asp:table, for example : mytable.
Then in your css refer to that table via the class selector.
TABLE.mytable

Open in new window

Use this as the context in other rules
TABLE.mytable TR TD {
}
TABLE.mytable THEAD, TABLE.mytable TFOOT {
}

Open in new window

This is my User Control.
<%@ Control Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeBehind="footerPage.ascx.cs" Inherits="products.footerPage" %>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
    <link href="~/css/products.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
 <div id="footer_bkgd_int">
        <br />
            <div id="footer_icons" class="grid_11">
                <img id="footer_icon1" src="../assets/footer.icon.gif" />
                    <img id="footer_icon2" src="../assets/footer.icon2.gif" />
            </div>
            <div id="footer_content" class="grid_11">
                Copyright 2012. All rights reserved.
                   
                    <br/><br/>
                    This web site,is the only authorized web site.
                    <br/><br/>            
                   
                </div>
     </div>  
This is the css class I am applying to user control.
.grid_11
{

 display:inline;

 float: left;

 position: relative;

 margin-left: 10.0px;

 margin-right: 10.0px;

}

I tried to use this css in .aspx page by two ways.
1.When I tried to add link to css in .aspx page it is giving the error.
<link href="~/css/product.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
content is not supported outside script or content regions.

2.<asp:TableFooterRow >
 <asp:TableCell >
 <ctr:Footer ID="FtrPage" runat="server"  />
   </asp:TableCell>
</asp:TableFooterRow>

I tried to add the class grid_11 at user control mark up.But it is not working. How to make it work.


Thanks

Remove this line from your ascx
<link href="~/css/products.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

Add the css file in your aspx, don't remove the class used in the div in ascx.
--Aspx page--
<head>
<link href="~/css/products.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
</head>
At Runtime, when html reponse is bieng sent to the client, the class name that you div in user control refers to will be found in the css you have put in your aspx code and thus will be applied automatically.

I added this line in .aspx page.
<asp:Content ID="Content1" ContentPlaceHolderID="HeadContent" runat="server">
  <link href="~/css/products.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
</asp:Content>

I Removed this line from ascx.I didn't remove the class used in the div in ascx.
<link href="~/css/products.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

But there is no change. The css styles are not applying to user control.

Are there any other suggestions please.

Thanks
