Hello,

I have a dreamweaver template created in C# with a void Page_Load() procedure. I have another page that this template is applied to, but which also has a Page_Load() to do its own thing. I can't have two page_loads so how would you recommend I work around this?

They both need to check a value in a database before displaying the page, which is why they both have page_load events/procedures.

Do:

void Page_Load() {
     doThing1;
     doThing2;
}

void doThing1(){
    'do stuff
}

void doThing1(){
    'do stuff
}

So close!! Thing is, my template needs the page_load() in order to format the template for the right users (i.e. for Managers, they see a different template).

The other page needs to select a record from the database on page load too, in order to determine whether to display a form or not.

The template is applied to many other pages which will not contain "doThing2"... Am I making sense?

Could you say :

try{
     doThing2;
} catch {
    'doesn't matter
}

So that it only calls do thing 2 if it exists, and just ignores it on other pages?

Well, I don't know much about try and catch and I was looking around on the Internet. I tried just as you said above so I put (checkDisc() being my "doThing2")

try{
    checkDisc();
}catch{
    //do nothing
}

- literally! I don't know what I have to put in the //do nothing part? Could you help me with what to write, like literally the code? Sorry for being difficult!

I looked into the try and catch statement but it didn't work when everything and everybody said it should do! So I gave up. I've had to do a dirty fix to get past this as the intranet I am building needed to go live. So I created a second template for that one page to have a different page_load from the others. So basically, I have one page with it's own template. Not good but it works for now!

So somebody, please help as I can't leave it like this!
