alter master page HTML in codebehind of a user control

I have a master page with the following tag
<section id="bannerSection">

Open in new window


I'd like to put a user control on some of these master pages which alter this HTML to:
<section id="bannerSection"  style="background: url(Libraries/banners/slide1.jpg) no-repeat center center; ">

Open in new window


I presume the first thing i need to do is put run at server on the html control on the master page
<section id="bannerSection" runat="server">

Open in new window



but what code do i need to put in the Usercontrol to search for this div and alter it with the style...
?????????

Its a bit more involved with a CMS and different bg images etc, so i've stripped the question back to its basic form
but if i can do exactly what i've said above, i can figure the rest out myself so it works in the CMS

You can access the control via the Pages reference to the Master, with something like:
HtmlGenericControl control = Page.Master.FindControl("wibble") as HtmlGenericControl;
control.Attributes.Add("style", "background-color:yellow;");

Open in new window

You'll need to include the System.Web.UI.HtmlControls namespace too.
