ASP.NET Page Templates - Using Inheritance

, 19 Sep 2002
A tutorial showing how to create page templates that use object-oriented inheritance.
<%@ Page language="c#" Codebehind="Default.aspx.cs" AutoEventWireup="false" Inherits="PageInheritanceSample._Default" %>
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" >
		<meta name="GENERATOR" Content="Microsoft Visual Studio 7.0">
		<meta name="CODE_LANGUAGE" Content="C#">
		<meta name="vs_defaultClientScript" content="JavaScript">
		<meta name="vs_targetSchema" content="">
		<form id="Default" method="post" runat="server">
			<P><STRONG>Page Inheritance Sample</STRONG></P>
					<A href="SimplePageInheritance.aspx">SimplePageInheritance.aspx</A>
				- this page demonstrates Simple Page Inheritance, which is faster that Advanced 
				Page Inheritance but you cannot use most server controls in the template
					<A href="AdvancedPageInheritance.aspx">AdvancedPageInheritance.aspx</A>
				- this page demonstrates Advanced Page Inheritance, a little bit slower than 
				Simple Page Inheritance, but you can put any server controls in the template
					<A href="WebUserControl.aspx">WebUserControl.aspx</A> - for comparison and 
					performance testing, the same template used in the previous two samples is 
					implemented using Web User Controls.</LI></UL>
