asp.net  3.5 with vb

My issue seems quite simple but am having some probems.

I have a master page with a number of child pages.

When a page loads and is based on the top level master page, I want to run code in the page load event.  If a page is based on any of the child masters then I do not want to run the code.

I thought a simple bit of code as below (pseudo code) in page_load woud do the trick:

if currentpage.masterpagefile = "mypage.master" then
run code
end if

If I could get the name of the current page master file then I would be fine but am not managing to do this.

Anyone know how this can be done

that works fine for me....

have you tried outputting the name ie response.write(me.masterpagefile.toString())

I have a masterpage called site.master and the output in my case was /site.master

I realise I've put the code in the top level master page itself.  Is this not the way to do it.  I assumed taht the code would execute in the context of the content page but perhaps not.  Will I have to create a class and refer to it from all pages where I want the code executed I wonder?
