Setting StyleSheet link from a MasterPage


G

Guest

I want to insert a CSS Stylesheet file in a <LINK> tag inside my MasterPage
so that it will work in all of the the ASPX pages that use that MasterPage
(no matter where the page is in the directory hierarchy).

I tried adding
<link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet"
href="~/Shared/CSS/Standard.css" runat="server" />

in the <head> section of the MasterPage. When I look at the source of my
pages later when I'm running it, it *does* seem to resolve to the right path,
but my styles are not applied.

I know no way of debugging the linking of these things so I don't really
know why it's not finding my stylesheet.css file. Also, I've testing the CSS
file with plain HTML and it works fine.

Any ideas?

get rid of (~)

I can't get rid of the "~". If I do, it will resolve to the doroot, not the
application root. And while that works in the live environment, it does not
work in run-time in Visual Studio - and I need that.

Apologies! I see it now...

Regarding your last post, do you mean that in the live environment you
do get the CSS working properly?

Okay, guess what - strangest thing just happened: I quit Visual Studio and
then started it again and now it all works perfectly. What on earth is *that*
all about??

Anyway, I guess it's resolved.

Thanks.

again
