Hi.

To change my meta info, I do like this:
Page.Title = Name;
HtmlMeta hm1 = new HtmlMeta();
HtmlMeta hm2 = new HtmlMeta();
hm1.Name = "description";
hm1.Content = MetaDescription;
hm2.Name = "keywords";
hm2.Content = MetaKeywords;
HtmlHead head = (HtmlHead)Page.Header;
head.Controls.Add(hm1);
head.Controls.Add(hm2);

Question 1)
How can I isolate it in a class?

Question 2)
In view source, it looks like this:
<meta name="description" content="my content" /><meta name="keywords" content="my content" /><title>
      my title
</title>

Hos does I make it look like this:
<title>mytitle</title>
<meta name="description" content="my content" />
<meta name="keywords" content="my content" />

Q1) You can define a method in a class and pass the Page as a parameter to that function.

Q2) What are the differences between these two? Just a line break?

Q1) Do you have an example?

Q2) Yes the line breaks and I want the title to before the description and keywords.

The function should be something like this:

    public void SetParameters(System.Web.UI.Page p)

    {

        p.Title = "TITLE";

        System.Web.UI.HtmlControls.HtmlMeta hm1 = new System.Web.UI.HtmlControls.HtmlMeta();

        System.Web.UI.HtmlControls.HtmlMeta hm2 = new System.Web.UI.HtmlControls.HtmlMeta();

        hm1.Name = "description";

        hm1.Content = MetaDescription;

        hm2.Name = "keywords";

        hm2.Content = MetaKeywords;

        System.Web.UI.HtmlControls.HtmlHead head = (System.Web.UI.HtmlControls.HtmlHead)p.Header;

        head.Controls.Add(hm1);

        head.Controls.Add(hm2);

    }

Q2) To do that, I think it is a matter of ASP .NET's internal mechanisms, a workaround could be this, you implement something on your own. e.g. the page be some thing like this:

And you add a method named GetCustomTags to your code behind file, like the below code and in that function, you return tags needed to be placed after title tag.


    public string GetCustomTags()
    {
        return "return what ever tags you need";
    }

<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="Default2.aspx.cs" Inherits="Default2" %>



<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">



<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

<head runat="server">

    <title></title>

    <%= this.GetCustomTags() %>

</head>

<body>

    <form id="form1" runat="server">

    <div>

    

    </div>

    </form>

</body>

</html>

About calling this function, you just need to call this in Page_Init event like this:

this.SetParameters(this);

Sorry, in the above code I assumed that you have placed SetParameters function inside the page class, if it is in an other class, you just need to declare a variable of that class type, initialize it and call the SetParameters function as shown earlier.

You could make a static function in a separate class. See below example. You can call the method from your page codebehind with HeaderHelper.SetHeader(this.Page, "page name", "page description", "page keywords").
public class HeaderHelper
    {
        public static void SetHeader(Page page, string name, string metaDescription, string metaKeywords)
        {
            page.Title = name;
            HtmlMeta hm1 = new HtmlMeta();
            HtmlMeta hm2 = new HtmlMeta();
            hm1.Name = "description";
            hm1.Content = metaDescription;
            hm2.Name = "keywords";
            hm2.Content = metaKeywords;
            HtmlHead head = (HtmlHead)page.Header;
            head.Controls.Add(hm1);
            head.Controls.Add(hm2);
        }
    }

You can call the method from a page's codebehind like this:

HeaderHelper.SetHeader(this.Page, "page name", "page description", "page keywords");
