I am using menu control using <ul> and <li> tag.

I am trying to apply some different color while menu selected.

But, applying color not reflected in menu. (particularly white color for text in the menu)

what will be the problem in the below code.

if (activepage.Contains("Customer.aspx"))
                menuCustomer.Attributes.Add("class", "MenuList");
                menuHome.Attributes.CssStyle.Add("background-color", "#819542");
                menuHome.Attributes.CssStyle.Add("color", "white");

    Hi @Gani_tpt,

    First, the code you provided is inconsistent with capitalization.

    User's image

    If you need to change the color for text, you need to set the css of the <a> tag, not <li>.

    For example:

    <div id="homemenu-wrapper">
         <div id="homemenu" class="container">
                 <li id="MenuHome" runat="server"><a href="Home.aspx" id="AHome" runat="server">Home</a></li>
                 <li id="MenuCustomer" runat="server"><a href="ITApprover.aspx">Customer</a> </li>
                 <li id="MenuHelp" runat="server"><a href="#">Help</a></li>
     AHome.Attributes.CssStyle.Add("background-color", "#819542");
     AHome.Attributes.CssStyle.Add("color", "white");

    Best regards,
    Lan Huang
