I'm trying to display a background image in my gridview header. This is what I have so far but it won't display the image. Any help is appreciated.


<asp:GridView ID="Users" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="False" CssClass="myheader"
                PageSize="20" AllowPaging="True" ondatabound="Users_DataBound" BackColor="Transparent"
                onpageindexchanging="Users_PageIndexChanging">                
                <Columns>
                    <asp:BoundField HeaderText="Emp_Id" DataField="Emp_Id" />
                    <asp:BoundField HeaderText="Last Name" DataField="Last_Name" 
                        ItemStyle-HorizontalAlign="Left" >
                    </asp:BoundField>
                    <asp:BoundField DataField="First_Name" HeaderText="First Name" 
                        ItemStyle-HorizontalAlign="Left" >
                    </asp:BoundField>
                </Columns>
                <HeaderStyle BorderStyle="None" />
            </asp:GridView>

Please disregard my first comment,
For header only, you need to use css.

I tried it with no success. Maybe I'm missing something. This is what I put in my css file:
..gvHeaderRow
{
background-image:url(../images/background_silver.jpg)
}
After that I added CssClass here:

<asp:GridView ID="Users" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="False"
PageSize="20" AllowPaging="True" ondatabound="Users_DataBound"
onpageindexchanging="Users_PageIndexChanging" CssClass="gvHeaderRow">

You have set CssClass for the whole gridview and not for header portion. So code as:

stylesheet code part: (ensure the url part in .css file in context to root and class name should be prefixed with single dot)
.gvHeaderRow
{
    background: url('Images/background_silver.jpg') repeat-x;
    color: #01354d;
    height: 25px;
    color: White;
}

.aspx code part (set headerstyle css class)
<asp:GridView ID="Users" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="False" CssClass="myheader"
                PageSize="20" AllowPaging="True" ondatabound="Users_DataBound" BackColor="Transparent"
                onpageindexchanging="Users_PageIndexChanging">                
                <Columns>
                    <asp:BoundField HeaderText="Emp_Id" DataField="Emp_Id" />
                    <asp:BoundField HeaderText="Last Name" DataField="Last_Name" 
                        ItemStyle-HorizontalAlign="Left" >
                    </asp:BoundField>
                    <asp:BoundField DataField="First_Name" HeaderText="First Name" 
                        ItemStyle-HorizontalAlign="Left" >
                    </asp:BoundField>
                </Columns>
                <HeaderStyle CssClass="gvHeaderRow" />
            </asp:GridView>
