How can I insert the title from <%@ Page Title="" (Hello World Title) into my page?

Here is my master page:
<% @ Master Language="VB" %>
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
<title></title>
</head>
<body>  

<asp:ContentPlaceHolder id="ContentPlaceHolder1" runat="server"></asp:ContentPlaceHolder>

</body>
</html>

Open in new window

Here is my page:

<%@ Page Title="Hello World Title" Language="VB" MasterPageFile="~/master.master" AutoEventWireup="false" %>
<asp:Content ID="Content2" ContentPlaceHolderID="ContentPlaceHolder1" Runat="Server">

<h1>Hello World</h1>

</asp:Content>

You have specified the Title in the page directive so that will get rendered as <title> in the head tag automatically.

Please try code as suggested below:

For Master page:
Protected Sub Page_Init(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Init
    Me.Page.Title = "Hello World Title - MASTER"
End Sub

Open in new window


For pages:
Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
    Me.Page.Title = "Hello World Title"
End Sub

I have specified the Title in the page directive but it does not get rendered automatically.

I want the data from this to be used:
<%@ Page Title="Hello World"Why isn't it automatically working?

When accessing "Page" you should be seeing title as "Hello World Title".

1. What are you currently seeing when you render page? If not header add title to MASTER page and see the difference.
2. Try code-behind title change as provided earlier, just to test functionality.
