Visual Studio Log In Styling

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I have a client that wants a nice looking login. Does anyone have any recommendations on how to style a login in Visual Studio 2010?? Could i just be able to style it similar to making radios, dropdowns, and check boxes in asp and just call the CSS style or is there more to it??

CSS will be your friend. The designer tools suck IMO. Just lay it out and write a style sheet.

On CSS? Nah, everything about CSS that I know is either from books or reference sites. I'll recommend w3schools.com:

Start here to get the basics:
http://w3schools.com/css/default.asp

Then go here:
http://w3schools.com/css3/default.asp

My ASP.NET process is this:
  • drop all of my controls on the web form
  • get the application working.
  • decide what I want it to look like
  • build and implement the style sheet

You're working in ASP.NET right? You create your webform which has backing HTML. You write a stylesheet which you then link to in the HTML of the webform.

As xtascox said, all you need to style anything is CSS

But I think you need to step back a second to fully understand what you want to do and what you need in order to do it. (You have a lot of questions on this board and I think it's because you're trying to do too much too soon all at the same time)

For starters, you say you're using Visual Studio 2010, from that we assume you are developing in ASP.NET and using their controls and not straight HTML. ASP.NET Controls will just render HTML when the page is rendered. However, there are two methods of programming in ASP.NET, Web Forms and MVC. Let us know which one you are using, they are different.

On to actually styling the form, I suggest following the above advice and get it to actually work first before you go to town on styling it. Then put it on a dev site so we can actually look at what you're doing so if you do have CSS trouble, we can actually debug it.

ur right. its a project for class, im learning and trying to build a prototype at the same time. i am coding in asp.net and have read and seen the tutorials on how to make a form work with css and open but i was trying to see how to correctly style VB's txt boxes, chk boxes, rdbs plus anything else i might need. Trying to learn the correct way in doing all of it, too. The site is made, just need to get the master template created, and get working the dbs.

Is the class specifically teaching VB? I personally like C# much better than VB but I think VB may be easier to start with?

For the form, if you already have it working, open it up in Firefox and use firebug to look at what HTML gets generated by ASP.NET. You can then use CSS to target that HTML and style it however you like.

no this class is on asp.net and i had a VB class before it. Im trying to kill two birds with one stone here.

EDIT:
im supposed to be integrating a database in a project, then i also have a capstone class for a project and i thought i would try to build some freelance sites in asp.net at the same time, great idea huh??? lol
