Default Try It Out Page 535

When I display the Genres.aspx in my browser, the background is all grey and the Gridview does not display properly.

When I "View Source" I notice there is a link (href) to the DarkGrey.css file. Where would that have come from? It is not in my Management.master file or anywhere else I look.

I have added a link to the Management.css file in the Management.master but not the DarkGrey.css. It seems the DarkGrey.css is overriding the Management.css. (The steps for this try it out don't include adding a reference to the Management.css, but shouldn't there be one?)

How do I get the DarkGrey.css file NOT to be compliled?

Hi jlransford,

I can think of two reasons for this:

1. Your management page is based on your custom template and thus inherits BasePage which sets the theme dynamically (see page 437, step 4 for the steps to create a page that is not based on your custom template)

2. You haven't (correctly) created the web.config file in the Management folder that resets the theme. See page 438, step 9 for more instructions.

Hope this helps,

My problem was #1. My management pages were based on my BasePage. Changing Inherits to System.Web.UI.Page solved the problem.

Many thanks!
