Styling asp .net login control with custom css and html

In this article we will see how to style asp .net login control using custom CSS and HTML. Some days back I have written an article about how to style Gridview and pager with custom CSS. I receives many requests about any article about how to style asp .net Login control with custom CSS and HTML . So I decided to write article about styling Login control with custom CSS and HTML. 
 

Most of the time developers receives website designs built by web designers or they download website designs from internet. Some asp .net developers might find hard to integrate Login control with the provided theme but it is very easy to integrate pre build Login control with any HTML, HTML5 or CSS3 Theme.  


For this article I will use Login control created by Ian Quinn from CSSDeck. You can find HTML, CSS used in this article from here. Our final output will be as:

Step1: Create a new asp .net website or open existing asp .net website.
 

Step2: Add a new Style-sheet file. I have named it StyleSheet.css .
 

Step3: Copy following CSS in your style sheet file. 

 

body{
  background:#161616;
  color:#888;
  font-family: 'Ubuntu Mono', sans-serif;
  text-transform:uppercase;
}

.box{
  width:90%;
  max-width:450px;
  height:auto;
  margin:0 auto;
  margin-top:100px;
  background:#222;
  border-radius:7px;
  box-shadow: 0px 3px 10px 1px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.9);
}

.content{
  width:85%;
  height:auto;
  position:;
  margin:0 auto;
  padding:30px 0px;
  background:;
  text-align:center;
}

.content h1{
  font-size: 24px;
  font-weight:400;
  color:#FFBF00;
  letter-spacing:0.125em;
  text-align:center;
}

.field{
  width:100%;
  margin:10px auto;
  padding:10px;
  background:#2c2c2c;
  border:none;
  box-shadow: 0px 1px 0px 0px #111;
  border-radius:3px;
  outline:none;
  color:#FFBF00;
  font-weight:700;
  letter-spacing:0.125em;
  text-align:center;
  text-transform:uppercase;
}


::-webkit-input-placeholder{ /* WebKit browsers */
  color:#5A5A5A;
}
:-moz-placeholder{ /* Mozilla Firefox 4 to 18 */
  color:#5A5A5A;
}
::-moz-placeholder{ /* Mozilla Firefox 19+ */
  color:#5A5A5A;
}
:-ms-input-placeholder{ /* Internet Explorer 10+ */
  color:#5A5A5A;
}



.btn{
  width:100%;
  margin:10px auto;
  padding:10px;
  background:#161616;
  border:none;
  box-shadow: 0px 1px 0px 0px #111;
  border-radius:3px;
  outline:none;
  color:#FFBF00;
  font-weight:700;
  letter-spacing:0.125em;
  text-align:center;
  text-transform:uppercase;
}

.btn:hover{
  background:#FFBF00;
  color:#333;
}

.btn:active{
  background:#FACC2E;
  color:#333;
}

 

 

Step4: Add a new Login page in your website and insert asp .net Login control. After inserting Login control you will see following HTML.

 


    

 

 

Step5: Go do designer and click small icon situated at right top corner of login control and click "Convert to Template" option.

When you click this option your login control will convert into HTML and will look like this:

 

 
     
         
Log In
User Name: *
Password: *

 

 

Step6: Remove extra HTML. 

We do not need all the HTML generated by the Login control so we will remove extra code. Remove all the HTML excepts Textboxes, Validators, Login Button and Literal control. After removing unnecessary HTML only these control should left in your page: 

 

 
     
         
         *
         
         *
         
     
 

 


Step7: Copy HTML from the template and paste in your page: 

 

Authentication Required



 


Step8: Replace textboxes and Buttons with the input controls present in the Login template and apply CSS classes, Placeholder tag as applied to input controls in the template. Now your HTML will look like this. 

 

 
     
         

Authentication Required

*
*

 


Step9: Add reference of css file into login page.
