experts:

I'm currently writing a sharepoint application that has a custom title bar and left hand menu bar. I'll be using a series of application pages to write this application. Can I create a master page that these application pages use that will be embedded within my default sharepoint pages? can anyone assist me in how I would do this if so?

Thanks in advance,

This question shows a lack of understanding of how SharePoint development works, and that is not an insult but a useful observation if you take it so. Please simply search for some basic SharePoint development information and your question as well as so much will be answered for you.

Hope that helps

Thanks SneekCo,

Hard not to take your response as an insult, but I'll give it a try.

From my research before posting this question, what I'm attempting to do appears to be unique since I've not been able to find anything that's helpful. Perhaps you could post a link or two that could assist me in what I'm trying to accomplish.

Here is some basic information about the use of master pages with SharePoint.

Overview of the SharePoint 2013 Page Model

This will explain how each page references a SharePoint master page. You can change what is referenced either via code of via site and page settings via a browser.  This article also explains how page layouts and the use of application or content pages comes in to play.

To realize the custom title bar and left hand menu bar, there again are a few different approaches. You may be able to use the oob navigation that can be configured via site settings. It is possible to customize navigation using code in the master page, but that might be over kill. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to post them here.

Hope that helps,

This isn't particularly helpful in my scenario. Maybe my original question is the problem.

here's my scenario:
I'm using a custom master page in my SharePoint platform that has all the branding and navigation features I need.
I'm creating an application using application pages which will operate within my SharePoint platform.
The application has it's own navigation bar and branding (sub branding) that will function within SharePoint, adopting the master page of the platform.
My goal is to have the navigation on each page of my application, without having to duplicate the code.
I was asking if I could do this via master pages, which I'm guessing I can't. (I'm pretty sure this can be done in ASP.NET although I've never done it.)
If this can't be done via nested master pages, do you have any suggestions on how I could tackle this without duplicating my code?

Keep in mind, the core of SharePoint IS asp.net. You may be able to accomplish what you need to do by not using "nested master pages", but using page layout pages for your application pages. The link I provided explains how this would work.
