.net - Translate Keys to char Using CSS Image Sprites with the XP Themed TabCont I recently blogged about how to create a YUI TabView theme for the AjaxControlToolkit's TabContainer control. As a follow up to this entry, Peter Kassenaar asked the question: I just don't quite get how the CSS is able to extract the different (background) images from a single sprite.png file. I've googled for this, but that didn't help me much. In the YUI theme I created, I used a single sprite image and used CSS to pinpoint the location within the sprite for the background image of the tab panel header's. While I have read about using CSS sprite's before, I haven't actually implemented it (or seen it implemented) on any of the project's that I have worked on. Even better, a side effect of this exercise would be getting rid of that flicker when the first time a tab is rolled-over (the image on the left shows a screen shot of what happens on the first roll-over, the screen shot on the right shows what it is supposed to look like).
