Directives for ASP.NET Web Pages

Directives specify settings that are used by the page and user-control compilers when the compilers process ASP.NET Web Forms pages (.aspx files) and user control (.ascx) files.

ASP.NET treats any directive block (<%@ %>) that does not contain an explicit directive name as an @ Page directive (for a page) or as an @ Control directive (for a user control).

For syntax information and descriptions of the attributes that are available for each directive, use the links that are listed in the following table.
