Default C# site framework


I just want to confirm if I am reading this correctly or if I am missing something;

In ThePhile sample the header, menu and footer is included in each .aspx page. So my concern is what if you want to change the structure of the framework? Say the design changes and calls for a sub header that cannot be included in the header tag, do I have to go to every page and add the sub header include code? If I do is there not a better way?

We want the design to be as flexible as possible, kind of like with a frameset (although I won't be using one) where you can change the underlying structure just by changing the main frame page.

 U don't need to go to every page and change something.
Use user controls and when you develop it drag it and drop it to all the pages and if you need to change something u will change it in the user control not in the pages. ok?

That's right - each user control is like a separate page that gets included in each page (the .net method of doing include files).

This can get out of control if you have a large number of user controls, and the placement on tags on the screen can get complicated. Sometimes a tag opened in the header user control is closed in the footer user control.

To solve many of these "user control hell" issues, ASP.NET 2.0 introduces the concept of Master Pages. This is a much cooler way of handling standard content in many pages.
