<%@ Page Language="C#" %>

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

<script runat="server">  
  
  protected void Page_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
  {
      
      // Create a Style object for the body of the page.
      Style bodyStyle = new Style();

      bodyStyle.ForeColor = System.Drawing.Color.Blue;
      bodyStyle.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.LightGray;

      // <Snippet2>
      // Add the style rule named bodyStyle to the header 
      // of the current page. The rule is for the body HTML element.
      Page.Header.StyleSheet.CreateStyleRule(bodyStyle, null, "body");
      // </Snippet2>
 
      // Add the page title to the header element.
      Page.Header.Title = "HtmlHead Example"; 
                   
  }
  
</script>

Remarks

The Header property gets a reference to an HtmlHead object that you can use to set document header information for the page. The HtmlHead allows you to add information such as style sheets, style rules, a title, and metadata to the head element.

Note

Adding styles programmatically using the methods of the IStyleSheet interface during asynchronous postbacks is not supported. When you add AJAX capabilities to a Web page, asynchronous postbacks update regions of the page without updating the whole page. For more information, see Microsoft Ajax Overview.
