How to override the head title of aspx by ascx?

I have a aspx page which includes 2 placeholder:
top.ascx and main.ascx

In top.ascx, it has

<head runat="server">
    <title>Welcome to my website</title>

In main.ascx, it has a drop down menu to let user choose the product name.

When a user select a product name from drop down list in main.ascx, e.g. toy, then the title in head of top.ascx would change to

<head runat="server">

How can I do that?

I use asp.net and C#. Please provide code to illustrate

In the code behind of main.ascx (main.ascx.cs), implement an event handler for the DropDownLists SelectionChanged Event:

public class main : System.Web.UI.UserControl
protected void DropDownList1_SelectionChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
this.Page.Title = "";  //Change Title based on DropDownList1, ie DropDownList1.SelectedText

Note:  I find it odd that you're using a UserControl to control the Title of a Page.  I would think you'd be better off using Master Pages.  Take a look at Scott Mitchel's tutorial on MasterPages if you're unfimiliar with the concept of them. : http://www.asp.net/learn/data-access/tutorial-03-vb.aspx
