How to change the Title in a Web Form at runtime in ASP.NET ?

Dec 15, 2009 Posted by Lara Kannan
In ASP.NET, a web form's title is determined by the HTML View's Title attribute. However, there is no property in the default (or any other namespace) that helps you to change the title programmatically.

Here's a simple workaround to accomplish this:

  • 1. Modify the current <Title> tag so that it's accessible in the code, by adding the tag.

  • 2. Assign an ID to the <Title> tag. Your code should look like this:
    <title id="pgTitle">Default Title</title>

  • 3. Add it to the code:
    protected System.Web.UI.HtmlControls.HtmlGenericControl pgTitle;

  • 4. Change the title in the code, using its InnerText property.
    pgTitle.InnerText = "Changed Text"

Happy Coding!
