I’m using Response.Write to insert HTML into my pages. Unfortunately it adds the code to the beginning of the file. I won’t to be able to specify the position of where I want the html inserted, so it goes into the HTML block. I’m wondering if I'm using the right class and method or whether there is a newer more friendly class and method that work similarly to the Page.RegisterStartupScript?

If you know the place where the text should appear I sugest using label controls.
For exapmle many sites have dates in particular places of their sites. The code should look like this (page_load event):

Label1.Text=Date.Today.ToShortString

Hope this helps.
Good luck

Put Response.Write in your HTML, enclosed in script tags, "<%" and "%>" if you must. This is very archaic, the "modern" way to output HTML is to add controls dynamically. You can insert an ASP:Placeholder to specify where they are inserted.

Using a label will work too, and you can put as much HTML as you want into it, it will get rendered as if you had put HTML straight into your page. For example, if you do

    Label1.Text = "Line 1" + "<br>" + "Line 2"

the output will appear on two lines. You can extend the concept to include other HTML tags.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

My first thought would be to use a placeholder.

<asp:Placeholder id="place1" runat="server" />


In code behind:

place1.Controls.Add(New LiteralControl("Whatever HTML you want<br>"))
place1.Controls.Add(New LiteralControl("<b>Some more HTML</b><br>"))

Yes you are right, what I am doing is archaic... however, Microsoft have failed to implement some very archaic principles. Like for example, server controls only seem to POST actions, when what most of the time they should be doing is the GET action. It is for this reason, that with this version of ASP.Net I want to avoid using server controls.

Place holders seem to be the way to go and if I receive no more comments I will award the points to mdamico for their clear and concise comment and example.

eeyore:

Can I just point out that I suggested a placeholder first?

Ok, place holders sort of answer my question. However, not fully.

It seems you can only use place holders in the body of a page. This is not sufficient for when header information needs to be dynamic. I.E. The title tag and meta tags.

I am therefore leaving this question, pending more comments.

<HTML>
      <HEAD id="head1" runat="server">

      </HEAD>
      <body>
            <form id="Form1" method="post" runat="server">

In codebehind:

  Protected pagetitle As HtmlGenericControl
  Protected head1 As HtmlContainerControl

    Private Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
    pagetitle.InnerText = "My page Title"
