HI

I have a master page which has a menu and a control (DropDownList) that must be hidden according to the section in which the user navigates.

How to do that ?

Thanks in advance.

Use display: none; in CSS to hide any element in HTML document.

Hello!
On the page you want to hide your user control you can do the following:
Control myControl = his.Master.FindControl("ControlIDYouWantToHide");
myControl.Visible = false;

Open in new window

I have to perform some changes to your code, first of all I have changed it to VB and added it inside of INIT event, just like this:


Protected Sub Page_Init(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)
        Dim mddlCategory As DropDownList = Me.Master.FindControl("ddlCategory")
        mddlCategoria.Visible = False
    End Sub

Open in new window

Te code was a little different (C#) but with some adjustments it worked very well.
