I need a page to reference a property on Site.Master

Posted on 2011-02-11
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
In the code behind of Site.Master I created an object, and want certain properties of that object made visible to "child" pages which use that Site.Master file.

Can I do that?

Could you please include the entire line, including the sample page/object name? I don't really get it.

Would that definition be in place of MasterPageFile="~/Site.master" ?

It sounds like this would then be a strongly typed definition, compared to using a MasterPageFile.

I added this line:

<%@ MasterType VirtualPath="~/Site1.Master" %>

to the page, but do not know how to reference the property on the Site object.

Could you tell me?
