Default Assign label or string to external html file


I'm trying to build a bulk emailer for a client. (no not a spammer, a newsletter!) I'd like them to only have to edit an html file for the body of the email. I figured out how to do a Response.WriteFile inside a label in the pages HTML, and that displays okay, but when I reference the .Text value for the body on my button click it is empty. I have a feeling this is a code-behind vs. middle of the html problem.

Basically I want to do something like this:

string blah = myExternalFile.html;


lblBlah.Text = myExternalFile.html;

However everything I've tried .NET has not been happy with. Any other way around including external text files into strings or labels?

Well exactly not sure what you want, but if you want to store the contents of an HTML file into a variable, why don't you use the StreamReader class, read the contents of the HTML file and store into the local variable!!


Don't expect too much, too soon.
