Using an image in the Hyperlink

I am using the ImageUrl property of the HyperLink control. My image is
large, so I am setting the width/height attributes, but when it renders the
width/height attributes are in the <atag rather than the <imgtag,
therefore not making the image the size I want. I can obviously place an
Image control inside the HyperLink, but the HyperLink was obviously intended
to render both. Is there a way around this without using multiple controls?
Thanks.

Since the Hyperlink control does not offer any properties for the image if an
ImageUrl is specified, the only way to "get around" this limitation would be
to try to specify some CSS properties.

Otherwise, you'll need to use two controls. Why is that such a big deal?

I can`t understand how to view a image using HyperLink control, that is to
make a href ,not a image .If you still want to do like this, you can try the
replace method to change the tag "a" into "img".

It is not that big of a deal to use two controls, but it is a pain in the
neck. But my main purpose of this posting was to point out that when using
the ImageUrl property of the HyperLink, it's Width and Height properties do
not do what you would expect. I would expect them to be applied to the
Image, because my "description" of using the HyperLink's ImageUrl property
is basically an ImageButton that links to another page rather than doing a
postback. I think that the reason for the Width property working in the
ImageButton but not the HyperLink is the fact that because they derive from
the WebControl class, the Width property is predefined, and is always
applied to the TagKey property (the outermost tag), which in an ImageButton
is <input>, the only tag involved but in HyperLink it is <a>, which is not
what we actually want the Width of. I think that this was bad design by
Microsoft, if I were to redesign the HyperLink I would Override the Width
and Height properties and detect whether the Hyperlink was using text or an
image. But that is just my opinion, and it has a simple workaround, so I
won't make too big a deal out of it.
