web page structure asp.net 1.1

I am trying to create a web page in asp.net 1.1. I want my pages to have a consistent feel. I already have the css for the pages

I am a php programmer and this is how I usually do it.

Click a link (FAQS index.php?faqs=1) it takes you to index.php.


index.php
example:

include  ('top.php'); // top.php is the design for the top of the page

//this is where the content will be displayed
 if(isset($_GET['faqs']))
{
     include('faqs.php');
}

include ('bottom..php'); //bottom.php is the bottom of the page

you should create a user control, by adding a user control to your solution not to rename a web page

see this:

its a page source:
<%@ Page language="c#" Codebehind="WebForm.aspx.cs" AutoEventWireup="false" Inherits="eeapplicationcs.WebForm" %>
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" > 

<html>
  <head>
    <title>WebForm</title>
    <meta name="GENERATOR" Content="Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 7.1">
    <meta name="CODE_LANGUAGE" Content="C#">
    <meta name=vs_defaultClientScript content="JavaScript">
    <meta name=vs_targetSchema content="http://schemas.microsoft.com/intellisense/ie5">
  </head>
  <body MS_POSITIONING="GridLayout">
      
    <form id="Form1" method="post" runat="server">

     </form>
      
  </body>
</html>

and its a user control source:

<%@ Control Language="c#" AutoEventWireup="false" Codebehind="WebUserControl.ascx.cs" Inherits="eeapplicationcs.WebUserControl" TargetSchema="http://schemas.microsoft.com/intellisense/ie5"%>


as you see there is no form in the user control source

Hamed ZaghaghiProgrammerCommented:
in asp.net you can use UserControls(*.ascx),

you can create and code  usercontrols like pages, and when you finished them, you can make a page(*.aspx), and then drag an drop your ascx where you want in your page

I was doing that but I got an error:

A page can have only one server-side Form tag.

How can I bypass this problem?

>>I was doing that ...

it means that you create 3 user controls, for example top.ascx, bottom.ascx and faqs.ascx,
and a page for example detail.aspx, and then drag and drop user controls in the page(in design view)??

carter_jlAuthor Commented:
I followed those steps but I still have the error.

Hamed ZaghaghiProgrammerCommented:
did you drag and drop the user controls in the page from the design view, from solution explorer?

Yes.

how do you insert a user control to your solution?
did you create a page and then rename it to ascx?
0
 
carter_jlAuthor Commented:
Yes, I think the problem is that I have two runat="server" in the code, because of the user control, and a regular text box.

Hamed ZaghaghiProgrammerCommented:
you don't create the ascx user controls like this,

you should insert a user control to a solution in this way:

right click on your project in solutionb explorer, and then "Add" --> "Add Web User Control"

i do exactly the same thing you are trying to do.  Here is what you are looking for

in html

<asp:placeholder runat=server id=ph1 />

in page load event

dim controller as string = request.querystring("controller")

if controller = "page1" then
 dim c as control = page.loadcontol(request.applicationpath + "/UserControls/Page1.ascx")
 ph1.controls.add(c)
elseif controller = "page2" then
 dim c as control = page.loadcontol(request.applicationpath + "/UserControls/Page2.ascx")
 ph1.controls.add(c)
and so on..

string controller = Request.QueryString.Get("controller");

                  if(controller == "abc")
                  {
                        Control c = Page.LoadControl(Request.ApplicationPath + "/abcContent.ascx");
                        ph1.Controls.Add(c);
                  }

in abcContent.ascx

<%@ Control Language="C#" EnableViewState="False" %>

<form id="Form1" method="post" runat="server">
      <asp:TextBox id="TextBox1" runat="server"></asp:TextBox></P>
      </form>

I still continue to get the same error.

true, you have to actually have a user control.
