Or maybe you are talking about this?...
WebForm.AddJavascriptFile(sFile As String)  ' to add your .js url
(I used this once and i think it mattered where i put it, it had to be
early, like in the header or the _new or _init i cannot remember, i'm sure
you will figure it out. you can use chromium or firefox devtools to see if
it's loaded properly)

as for css i think you can use WebControl._AddStyleSheet(sStyle As String)
but it not a URL it's the style text so you must load the file first using

(there may be a way to load a css url directly but i do not know)
