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")

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.

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">
