I am using vs2010.

My default  page is referenced as follows during testing:


I have created  2 styesheets, css1 for product a,  css2 for products b

I want to reference css1 for product a and css2 for product b

The stylesheets are assigned in default.aspx

How can I select a stylesheet by url (example: http://localhost:xxxx/default.aspx?/products=a to use css1) for the body of default.aspx

Thanks in advance,

you can dynamiccaly assign the style sheet

protected System.Web.UI.WebControls.Literal StyleSheet;

   private void Page_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
         const string styleFormat =
           "<LINK href='\"{0}\"' type='\"text/css\"' rel='\"stylesheet\"'>";

         string linkText;
         linkText = String.Format(styleFormat, StyleSheetPath);
         StyleSheet.Text = linkText;        

In your case use name from request.query string

<link id="MyStyleSheet" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" runat="server" />
</head>Then in your Page_Load, simply add a "href" attribute as below:

 Collapse | Copy Code
Sub Page_Load(Sender As Object, E As EventArgs)
 If Not (IsPostBack)
 End If
End Sub
