Creating Themes in ASP.NET

Here i will show you step by step procedure how to use Creating Themes in ASP.NET in visual studio 2005 / 2008

The use of creating themes is to format the controls in asp.net pages.

Here I am using Visual Studio 2008 but there is no condition you can use Visual Studio 2005 also. So follow these steps to create State Implementation 

The Steps are:

1- Start -> All Programs -> Visual Studio 2005 or Visual Studio 2008

2- Now go to File Menu -> New -> Web Site

3- Under Visual Studio Installed Template-> Choose ASP.NET WEB SITE -> Choose File System from the location combo box -> Set the path by the browse button - > Choose the language from the Language ComboBox (Visual C# , Visual Basic , J #)
Choose Visual C#

4 - Click on the OK Button:-

First you have to learn XML and HTML to work with ASP .NET_

I have used to make the text as comment this is the way to make comment in this code .

This is the Source Code window and in this page you will see this code.


<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true"  CodeFile="Default.aspx.cs" Inherits="_Default" %>

Type your webpage title here  

See here is a tab named Design in the bottom of this page

5- Click on this tab and you will see a blank web page where you can drag any control from the toolbox (which is in the left side of this window)

Open Web.config file and write true in place of false, See

6- Drag two Label, one TextBox and one button control in the design window or in the source window

7-Now the source window should be look like this :


<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true"  CodeFile="Default.aspx.cs" Inherits="_Default" %>

  Creating Themes
asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server" Text="Enter Your Name in the Text Box">

8- Now go to solution explorer and right click on the web site and choose Add New Item
and add a  .skin extension file .

9- Now type this code in the .skin extension file

10- Now you have to add one line in the Default.aspx page for applying the theme on the page.
See how to apply the theme.

Type this line just after  tag like this
<title>Creating Themes

11 - Now run your web site by Ctrl + F5


10-Now you will see that your control are now formatted .

11- Close web browser

12-Close visual studio
