Can I do this?

<title><asp:Label id="Label1" style="Z-INDEX: 102; LEFT: 280px; POSITION: absolute; TOP: 208px" runat="server"></asp:Label></title>
 (label1's value is set to that of application("Institution") )


If not, then should I do

<title<%=application("Institution")%></title>   ??

Is there a better way to put, say, application variables into the browser page title?

hello again smetterd :)

best way is probalby to give your title an id and runat="server" then refer to its InnerHtml property:

<title runat="server" id="title">

in your code

title.InnerHtml = Application("Institution")

its a property of the HtmlContainerControl control.

System.Web.UI.HtmlControls.HtmlContainerControl

it should behave exactly the same for VB.NET

Parser Error Message: The base class includes the field 'lblTitle', but its type (System.Web.UI.HtmlControls.HtmlSelect) is not compatible with the type of control (System.Web.UI.HtmlControls.HtmlGenericControl).

Source Error:


Line 3:  <HTML>
Line 4:        <HEAD>
Line 5:              <title runat="server" id="lblTitle">Untitled Document</title>
Line 6:              <meta name="vs_snapToGrid" content="False">
Line 7:              <meta name="GENERATOR" content="Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 7.1">
