Adding a Page that Uses The Master Page
You will now create a Web page that is based on the Master Page you just
added to your project.
1. In the Solution
Explorer right-click the project and select
Add New Item. In the Add New Item dialog select
Web Form.For Name enter "ContentPage.aspx". Uncheck
Place code in separate file and check Select master page,
then click Add.
2. In the Select a Master Page dialog, select MasterPage.master
and click OK.
3. Click Design to view the design surface
of your new Web page. Notice that everything except the Content control is grayed out. You can only
change the content within the enabled control. Enter some text, such as "This is custom content for this Web page".
Then press F4 and change the Content control's
ID to "bodyContent".
4. Click Source. Notice that there is very
little code in this
page. All you have is a reference to the master page and the Content control
tag, with the content you just entered.
5. Press F5 to run the application.
Notice how easy it was to create a Web page that uses a Master Page and an easily configurable dynamic navigation menu.
6. Close your browser.
