I want to dynamically set the page Meta Tags based on certain criteria .. I'm using the following function..

The code works fine if placed in the same page, however, since what I want to do has more to do, I thought I want to place this code in a separate class and call it when I need it .. the problem is getting is issue:


'MyClassName' does not contain a definition for 'Header' and no extension method 'Header' accepting a first argument .... etc..

any idea of how can I cast or pass the value..

Thank you

public void setMeta(string tagName, string tagContent)

    {
 

        HtmlMeta meta_desc = new HtmlMeta();

        meta_desc.HttpEquiv = tagName;

        meta_desc.Content = tagContent;

        this.Header.Controls.Add(meta_desc);
 

    }

your "MyClassName" class has to inherit from System.Web.UI.Page
and then your pages should inherit from MyClassName

the technique is called "base pages"

you can also google "asp.net base page" for tons more...ultimately...it lets your aspx pages have one place for shared code
