The master page can't directly call functions in the child class - it may not exist!
It's similar to the situation when you derive a C# class from a base class. The base class does not know what classes will be derived from it, so it can't call any of the methods in it, unless they are overridden versions of the methods already within the base class: it's like a generic Fruit trying to call a "Orange Segment" method on a Grape! :laugh:
The chances are that wanting to do this is a symptom of a bad design choice.

There are a couple of was you can do it though if you must. Have a look here:[^]

This goes into your MasterPage class:
if(Page is Default)
   Default def = (Default)Page;

Please try to tell me what you are trying to accomplish, looks like you have the DevExpress components on your hands, which includes ASPxMenu if you need a menu, and ASPxGridView if you need to build a table, or a set of nested tables - and I assume that you have xpo too, and if you're lucky xaf - which is what you should use if you have it ...

Have a look at the ScriptManager : or the ScriptManagerProxy

I would be surprised if the ScriptManager is not used, and I expect that the ScriptManagerProxy is what you are looking for. Use ScriptManagerProxy.Scripts to register a ScriptReference to you JavaScript file for use with your page.
