Remarks

Use the Style collection to manage the style attributes rendered in the outer tag of the Web server control. This property will render on all browsers for all controls.

Note

Browsers that do not support style attributes will ignore the rendered HTML.

Any style values set through the strongly typed style properties (for example, BackColor="Red") will automatically override a corresponding value in this collection.

Values set in this collection are not automatically reflected by the strongly typed style properties.
