How can I access the property a control on a master page from the master page's code behind.
On my master page I have a label. I want to change this label's text property based on an element of the querystring. (label.text = "NewValue")All child pages using this master will display the same thing so I was trying to put the code in the master page so as not to have to duplicate it for the child pages or put it in a base class and use FindControl.Is it possible to access from a master page's codebehind the property of a server control that is placed on a master page's aspx? If so how?(I saw similar questions, but they all came from the view of a child accessing the property.)Thank you...Content controls have to be top-level controls in a content page or a nested master page that references a master page.

This all used to work until about 5 minutes ago. Did I change something? For some reason I am now getting this error: Content controls have to be top-level controls in a content page or a nested master page that references a master page. What I have: I have a masterpage inside of a directory. That directory is a first level directory with its own web.config file....The whole thing is protected by the web.config file above it (in the main public directory). That main public directory has a masterpage as well.

I am using a master page for a website (Vs 2008) . I am facing two problems - 1. In the Login page, I am hiding the logout hyperlink. After the user logs in successfully , I'm setting the visibility of the logout hyperlink to true. But then, when I navigate to another page, the logout button disappears - forcing me to redo setting the visibility in every page. 2. I have a similar problem with an Image in the page too. When I change the image in the content page after login, it reverts back to the existing image in the master page ( this I guess is because the master page loads...Master Control
I find Master Page idea brilliante. But wouldn't it be nice to have an ability to assign master layout for user controls?
Does anyone know of something like that?
Look into Themes and Skins. Skins are user to set a template for a contol.Themes and SkinsThemes and Skins 2 www.hopeasp.net
Hmm Sean, themes and skins will only help with STYLING the components not layout.
What I need is something to set the LAYOUT of the user control and use that master layout to place components in. Like in master page but in user controls.Simple example:

I have a master page which I'm using on my aspx page. Within this aspx page is a user control and I would like to set a label on my master page using a value from my user control.
I can do this using FindControl as shown below but I would like to use properties in my master page.
The following code in my user control works perfectly:
Label theFormName = (Label)this.Page.Master.FindControl("lblFormName");theFormName.Text = "My Test Form";
However I've been told that using properties is a much better ideas (errors would be picked up at compile time an...Div control height does not work in IE 6 but works in IE 7?
I am using a Div control to expand and contract the height to show more fields in a FormView. It works in IE 7 but in IE 6 does not work? Any ideas?
When the ASP.NET 2.0 WebForm opens up in IE 6 the hight is disregarded but in IE 7 it shows correctly. Then I have a button in the FormView that changes the height with same results, works in IE 7 but not IE 6.

How do you set the property(ForeColor) of a server control(lnkInquiryReport2) located in a user control (LeftNavMain1) within a Master Page (default.master)?
On the user control, expose a property of type color and bind this to the forecolor for the hyperlink control [keep some default value]. On your master page expose the user control as a property. On your content page, access the uc via the master's prop and the forecolor prop via the uc's prop and set it. Instead of exposing the uc from the master, you can also find the uc on the master - cast it to the correct type and then access th...Referencing a user control property in a master page to set the current pages title

You can drag and drop a user control named userControl1 to master page and refer to its property through userControl1.Title to set master page title in Page_Load event handler.

Noreen,The default binding for a Menu control connected to a SiteMapDataSource is to navigate. It's possible that you're navigating back to your same page?

I have a custom header control that has a public property TabID declared in the codebehind of the control itself.
In asp1.1, I dragged the header control to a page and set the tabid like: <uc1:myheader runat="server" TabID="1" /> inside the aspx page it was placed.
Now I would like to put the header control inside a master page, but I'm not sure how to set this property without setting it in codebehind for every page i create. Is this possible?

How would I structure my site in this scenario: I'd like to use a dropdownlist all over my site, sometimes in a regular page, sometimes in a master page, and sometimes in a user control. I wish to bind its events programmatically, so normally I would just put that in the codebehind. However, I notice a lot of code duplication because I have to declare the control in everywhere, in my base page (which all my pages inherit from), in my base master page (which all my master pages inherit from) and in my base user control (which all my user controls inherit from).How should I be...
