Background Image Issues RRS feed

  • Question

  • Technical stuff:  Windows Visa 64-bit; Visual Studio 2010 C#; 4.0 .NET; XHTML 1.0 Transitional; skill level is beginner to intermediate
    I had created a sample 'website' with four files, index.htm, master.css, bandpic1.jpg and circles.jpg via Notepad++.  I now want to expand it into a full-fledge website and dumped it into VS to take advantage of 'masterpages' and other things.
    I separated out the original index.htm into masterPages.master and default.aspx and copy/pasted the master.css with no changes.  Everything looks good code wise...no errors, no warnings.  I 'build', then 'run' and everything looks like it should EXCEPT that I'm missing my header background image.
    The code is:
    #header {
    	background-image: url(images/circles.jpg) no-repeat right;
    	height: 180px;
    	padding-right: 15px;
    	border-bottom: 1px solid #DA84DD;
    I have tried: 
    * (~/images/circles.jpg)
    * (~images/circles.jpg)
    * breaking code line into individual componets
    * putting the circle.jpg in the main directory
    What makes this so frustrating is 1) it's the EXACT SAME code as was used previously, 2) I have an image file in my default.aspx page and it renders just time, and 3) this is not the first website that I have redesigned with Visual Studio.
    Any assistance is greatly appreciated.  Thank you.

  • This does not look like a class diagram XML but looks like CSS. Try forums.asp.net instead.
