Calling MasterPage Subroutines from a ContentPage


J

Is it possible? I haven't been able to find any information about this.
Not on the web, not in books.

Is it possible to call a function or subroutine which is defined in a
MasterPage from it's derivative ContentPage?

Thanks.
Jeff

In your aspx add:
<%@ MasterType virtualPath="~/<MasterPageName>.master"%>

Then in its codebehind:
this.Master.MyMethod()

Hope this is what you needed.

I HOPE MY SOLUTION HELPS MANY SEEKING ANSWERS LIKE MYSELF BUT FAILED.
(1) One thing you guys left out in contentpage calling masterpage.
In ContentPage aspx, you cannot add this
<%
@ MasterType virtualpath="~/{Your Masterpage}.Master" %>
When compile, you get compiler error
So, dont add!
(2) Calling a Public Routine (Property or Function) that is in Masterpage
In Content Page:
just write code as
CType
(Master, {Your MasterPage Name}).{Your MasterPage.PublicRoutine)

That's all. However, do note that inside masterpage page_load,what you declared here will return empty in your calling.

IN ADDITION TO MY COMMENTS:
(1)When contentpage is called, masterpage will load next. So....
In ContentPage Page_load, When you reference a masterpage routine, you may get empty result because the Masterpage.pageload is loaded second.
Hence, whatever variables you assigned value is not captured yet.

Again, just write as:
Dim a as string
a = CType(Master, {Your MasterPage Name}).{Your MasterPage.PublicRoutine)

Hope I helped someone.

Cheers,
Tuck
