ASP.net Table cell BorderStyle Bottom edge only

I am using the following VB.net code to set the border style of  a Table Cell in ASP.net to the Css Class shown further down. This affects all four borders of the cell. How do I only
affect the bottom border and leave the other three sides of the cell as blank or white.
I was shown an example of the xml code used to do this but I am dynamically building the table in VB.net

 Dim tCell As New TableCell()
 tCell.CssClass = "td"

 td { border-bottom: double 2px black; }

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head runat="server">
    <style type="text/css">
        td.double-underline { border-bottom: double 2px black; }

    <form id="form1" runat="server">
                <asp:TableCell CssClass="double-underline">Some content</asp:TableCell>

Note the difference between your initial line of css and the one in the code example:
td { border-bottom: double 2px black; }

Open in new window

works on all td's whereas
td.double-underline { border-bottom: double 2px black; }

Open in new window

defines a new class that only works on td's of that class.

So you should use the second one and then change the dynamic assignment in the code accordingly:
tCell.CssClass = "double-underline"

Open in new window

I just tested it and it works as inline style but not as css class.
