I want to assign the username to the label [placed in Menu] after login in the application e.g. Hello <username>

<div id="toprightPan2"> 
	<li class="login"><a href="Login.aspx"><asp:Label ID="lblLogin" runat="server" Text="Login"></asp:Label></a></li>
        <li class="reg"><a href="Register.aspx"><asp:Label ID="lblRegister" runat="server" Text="Register"></asp:Label></a></li>

-I am using style sheet and placed my ID i.e. toprightpan2
-I have placed this code in Master page
-But i need to change the Text of labels when the user login on a child page. I am unable to do because the content is in master page and remain same in all other pages.

Kindly solve this problem, i will be very thankful to you.

One simple solution to your problem is:
Label lblLogin  =(Label)Page.Master.FindControl("lblLogin");
lblLogin.Text = "New Text";

If I understand you correctly... :)

You can use find method like
var lvl = this.Master.FindControl("lblLogin") as Label;
lvl.Text = "something new";

Or a better way to avoid using string is that, you can create a property in Master page & access it from child page like
this.Master.Message = "something new"; // Message is the prop. in master page

Its better if you create two properties on master page.... and access those properties on content page..
For eg.
1) On Master Page code create property
Public string LoginText
return lblLogin.Text;
lblLogin.Text = value;

2) On the Content Page in aspx File, add a following directive after page directive
<%@ MasterType virtualPath="~/MasterPage.master"%>

3) Now in the code file of Content Page, You can access the property using
Master.LoginText = " Value you want to set ";
