How to change style for a control contained in a ControlTemplate

How to change style for a control contained in a ControlTemplate


I have defined a ControlTemplate as shown below (pretty much just a combobox kind of control).

I hoped that I would be able to change the control template for the dropdown button where used on the form by overwriting the DropDownButtonStyle like this, but it doesn’t work.


How can I overwrite the style for a control contained in a control template? (other than exposing the control as a property on the custom control)


UserControl.Resources – this should give me the brown button style

<Style x:Key="DropDownButtonStyle

ASP.NET repeater control - databind with style

even used the inline editing features, which I at the time thought was the coolest way possible to write ASP.NET code ( I managed to write code to hide all other rows and only show the current one - the row being edited). With a nice looking EditTemplate it looked indeed very slick but it really turned into giant and hard to manage code behind files.

Password change control won`t accept new password


Hi guys

I am developing a shopping cart with asp.net and sqlexpress. I am using aspnet authentication components to create a backend page. I designed the site to let in only authorized users in. 

Yesterday, I forget my password to login to backend and asked system recover my password. with recover password of the asp.net I was able to receive the temp password. I took that and logged in, of course asp.net forward me to password change component which I am having problem with. 

Every time I change my password , password change shows that I was successfull but after clicking on the continiue button password change component comes back. I went to properties of password change component and entered the main default page as destination but it is not helping. 

I close the IE clear the cache , even restart the machine. When I login always taking me to the password change page.

So, I need your help with this. Please let me know your inputs.


Is it possible to change the title bar background and the font style on default template?



Is there any way to change the default top link /title bar picture and the fonts of the title without breaking anything in the layout/structure?

I have changed the theme to Obsedian and I would also like to change the picture of the title bar of this theme and also the font/style of the title, top link bar, menus..etc. Is there a way to do this?

Please note: I am using WSS 3.0 and I am not the Administrator of the sharepoint. I am only the site admin of some sites on this sharepoint. I can do some basic customization using SPD.

Basically, what I am trying to do is that I want to set up a sharepoint site, however I want to make it NOT look like a sharepoint site.Well I know this is possible, but for my case it might be just partially possible due to the limitation that I am not the Site collection admin and hence I do not have direct access to the server itself.

What I want is to hide most of the sharepoint links/menus/bars, etc and use my own buttons/hyperlinks etc .. for user to navigate on the sites.

Thanks in advance for your help/advices.



Use update progress control to change image control imageurl

UPDATE: Apologies for the previous formatting error - hopefully the post is now more readable... Hi I have a button with an image control next to it. Before the button is clicked, the image control "ConfirmedStatusImage" shows a "cancel.png" image. When the button has been clicked (and some other code successfully executed), then I change the imageurl for the "theConfirmedStatusImage" to show a "ok.png" image. Quite a bit of time can often pass between clicking the button and the associated code executing, so I have an ajax update progress control that shows a "bluespinner.gif" image while the page is updating after the button click. At the moment, the update progress updating image appears next to the "ConfirmedStatusImage" control. However, I would like to change things so that when the update progress starts, the imageurl of "ConfirmedStatusImage" changes from "cancel.png" to the update progress image (i.e., the "bluespinner.gif"). Then, when the update is complete, then the image should change to the "ok.png" image. My question is: how can I achieve this? As far as I can tell, the update progress control does not have any events that I can hook into. Also, placing the "ConfirmedStatusImage" inside the ProgressTemplate would not work either, as this only displays

UPDATED: AJAX FAQ? And: How to Style the AJAX tab control's tabs: complete information

UPDATE April 08, 2009: for the latest version of this post, with up-to-date info on styling the Tab control, see my just updated Blog post -- the info below is somewhat outdated and does not have some additional details I have added to the Blog post.   First of all, I would like to suggest that the AJAX section of the ASP.NET forums have its own FAQ section. I was going to post this in the general ASP.NET FAQ, but it didn't really fit, and there was no AJAX FAQ, so I'm posting it here. Next: I have been looking for details on how to style the Tabs in the AJAX Toolkit's Tab control for over a week now. I have found information that is misleading, incomplete, outdated, and just plain wrong. And nowhere have I come across all the information needed to make it work in one place. So, I am posting this here. I hope that an AJAX FAQ can be created, and this post moved there.   I am including some background information, about the difficulties people are having in finding information on styling the tabs, first; after that I will include the complete instructions for styling the tabs. First: the information on the documentation page for styling the tabs is misleading at best, as well as incomplete. The docs tell you that you can simply add your styles to your project as CSS, and neglect to tell you that you must add a "CssClass" attribu

Change style for aspMenu items

I am using a aspMenu that renders the horizontal global navigation with useSimpleRendering="true" so that a list (ul,li) menu implementation is used rather than the table implementation.  My question is - how do I change the style of the UL, LI elements? They have class names such as "root static", "static dynamic children", etc. etc.  I can overwrite the css definition for these styles in my custom css. But what if I want the implementation to use my css element names? I tried with using the "CssClass=classname" and "UseSeparateCss=true" for the <Sharepoint:AspMenu> .... but this doesn't seem to have any influence on the CSS elements for the List. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance, Jake.
