Default BasePage Code for VB (Chapter 6)

First post here, Really enjoying the book.

I run Vista 64 and noticed that when I added the "
If Me.Title = "Untitled Page" Then"
Code that is supplied on Page 206, the error message did not come up. I figured out that the pages were not being named "Untitled Page" and the title had "" no entry.
I just added "ElseIf Me.Title = "" then"
to the statement and that produced the error for these pages.

Just wanted to pass that along. I am not sure if that is a Vista quirk or what, but I thought that may be useful to others.

Hi Justin,

I think this is a Service Pack 1 issue. Before SP1 (the RTM of VS 2008), new pages were titled "Untitled Page". Now, when you apply SP1, pages are titled "" by default. Your fix works, although you could also simply use an Or:
If Me.Title = "Untitled Page" Or String.IsNullOrEmpty(Me.Title) Then
  Throw New Exception("Page title cannot be ""Untitled Page"" or an ampty string.")
End If
Hope this helps,
