The ContentPlaceHolder emits a a div as html. I would like to set the display property to inline. Is there a way I can do this?

Sorry, got confused with the object. I am not interested in the ContentPlaceHolder. This works fine and does not emit a div. The object I am interested in is a TreeView. The TreeView  emits a div and I would like to set the display to inline.

Of course you can set css property to it. (actually any html object/element).

Once document is ready, you can set it like:

Using jquery:

$('#treeview_client_id_here').css('display', 'inline');

using JavaScript:

Actually, the control itself allows you to create a class for the control, simply give the control property CssClass a name, then you can use regular CSS to control layout.  More info here; http://msdn.microsoft.com/query/dev10.query?appId=Dev10IDEF1&l=EN-US&k=k%28SYSTEM.WEB.UI.WEBCONTROLS.WEBCONTROL.CSSCLASS%29%3bk%28SYSTEM.WEB.UI.WEBCONTROLS.TREEVIEW%29%3bk%28VS.PROPERTIES%29%3bk%28TargetFrameworkMoniker-%22.NETFRAMEWORK%2cVERSION%3dV4.0%22%29&rd=true
