Possible to add my own CSS includes after "WebResource.axd"?

See original GitHub issue

The AJAX Control Toolkit

The installation method

  • Installer
  • NuGet package
  • A custom build from the source code

Minimal steps to reproduce

I want to be able to override styles from (e.g.) the Tab Control.

Since your RegisterCssReferences method seems to always append the “WebResource.axd” calls always to the very end of the HTML head tag, I can never include my own CSS files after that.

var link = new HtmlLink();
link.Href = href;
link.Attributes.Add("type", "text/css");
link.Attributes.Add("rel", "stylesheet");

My question

Is it possible to add my own CSS reference below your “WebResource.axd” links inside the HTML head?

That’s awesome, @MarinaRukavitsyna! DevExpress-quality support even here on GitHub.

Thanks a lot for your detailed help!

Hi @UweKeim I checked the earliest available version of the toolkit and CSS rendering worked exactly as it works now.

You can render CSS as a bundle, so no links will be attached to the end of the head section.

  1. Install the AjaxControlToolkit.StaticResources NuGet package.
  2. Enable BundleTable optimizations:
public class Global : HttpApplication {
  void Application_Start(object sender, EventArgs e) {
    BundleTable.EnableOptimizations = true;
  1. Render AJAX Control Toolkit styles bundle in the head section:
<head runat="server">
  <asp:PlaceHolder runat="server">
    <%: System.Web.Optimization.Styles.Render("~/Content/AjaxControlToolkit/Styles/Bundle") %>
  1. Place your custom CSS after this placeholder.

I have attached a sample project to illustrate this approach: С

Please inform us if this solution is suitable for you.
