I have inherited MasterPage in one of asp.net form. I have added some controls in Content box but when I click on Source, I do not see element such as <html>, <head>, <body> and <form> etc..
From this web form, I call another ASP.Net popup form to pick date from calendar and selected date does not transfer to calling form. If I remove MasterPage it works fine because I can see <html>, <head>, <body> and <form> etc.
Any suggestions or solutions?

Thanks.

Do you have an example of what you are trying to pull?  How are you trying to get the value from the popup?  Could you post the code snippet that isn't working in the Master Page, and the same snippet, if different, from the page with the HTML tags.

Thanks,

Shawn

You're not going to see the <html>,<head>, <body> tags in the content pages.  These are defined in the master page.  If you want to edit them, edit the master page, not the content page!  When the page runs, it's all put together and sent to the browser.

Following is code which is working fine without inheriting MasterPage in Form1.aspx

Form1.aspx
--------------

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" >
<head runat="server">
    <title>Untitled Page</title>
</head>
<body>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <div>
        &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;
        <asp:TextBox ID="txtDate" runat="server" Style="z-index: 104; left: 40px; position: absolute;
            top: 48px"></asp:TextBox>
            <a href="javascript:;" onclick="window.open('frmCalendar.aspx?myControl=txtDate','cal','width=225,height=200,left=270,top=180')">
        <asp:Image ID="Image1" runat="server" ImageUrl="~/calendar.gif" Style="z-index: 106;
            left: 208px; position: absolute; top: 48px" /></a>
    </div>
    </form>
</body>
</html>


frmCalendar.aspx
--------------------

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" >
<head id="Head1" runat="server">
    <title>Select Date</title>
   
</head>
<body>
    <form id="form2" runat="server">
    <div>
    <asp:Calendar ID="Calendar1" OnSelectionChanged="Change_Date" Runat="server"  >        
    </asp:Calendar>
        &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
       <input type="hidden" id="myHidden" runat="server" style="width: 127px" />    
    </div>
        &nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;
    </form>
</body>
</html>

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {      
        myHidden.Value = Request.QueryString["myControl"].ToString();
    }

protected void Change_Date(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
    {
        string strJScript = "<script>window.opener.document.forms(0)." + myHidden.Value + ".value = '";
        strJScript += Calendar1.SelectedDate.ToString("MM/dd/yyyy") + "';self.close()" + "</" + "script>";
        ClientScript.RegisterClientScriptBlock(this.GetType(), "myScript", strJScript);
    }
