    I want to link an ASP item with my stylesheat.

    But the Stylesheat doesn't register asp items.

    for example: 

    <asp:ImageButton Width="5%" Height="5%" hover="fill:White;" runat="server" id="ShoppingCart" ImageAlign="Right" ImageUrl="~/foto's/shopping-cart-solid.svg"></asp:ImageButton>

    So I try to link it like this:


    But is doesn't recognise it

    Use the CssClass property instead of the ID:

    <asp:ImageButton Width="5%" Height="5%" runat="server" CssClass="ShoppingCart" id="ShoppingCart" ImageAlign="Right" ImageUrl="~/foto's/shopping-cart-solid.svg"></asp:ImageButton>

    Or set the ClientIDMode to Static:

    <asp:ImageButton Width="5%" Height="5%" runat="server" ClientIDMode="Static" id="ShoppingCart" ImageAlign="Right" ImageUrl="~/foto's/shopping-cart-solid.svg"></asp:ImageButton>

    Hi retlok

    As Mikesdotnetting has shown, the problem is with the id property of your control.

    It doesn't always equal to the real html control sent to client side.

    For example , when your control is in a asp:Content control(means your page has a master page) or in a gridview. They all could be called container control which will change the id property of  child control in it.

    If you open F12 developer tool , you will see your control's id property is different from the id which you write in your aspx.

    For example , I put my control in a child page.

    <asp:Content ID="Content3" ContentPlaceHolderID="ContentPlaceHolder2" runat="server">
        <asp:ImageButton Width="5%" Height="5%" hover="fill:White;" runat="server" id="ShoppingCart" ImageAlign="Right" ImageUrl="~/images/WingtipToys/busgreen.png" />

    If I open F12,I will see 

    <input type="image" name="ctl00$ContentPlaceHolder2$ShoppingCart" id="ContentPlaceHolder2_ShoppingCart" hover="fill:White;" src="../images/WingtipToys/busgreen.png" align="right" style="height:5%;width:5%;">

    This why you could register your control.

    You could also use css  attribute attribute as follows.It could  controls whose id includes ShoppingCart
