You can also set the page title by using the title attribute of the @ Page directive, or by setting the Title property of the Page class.

The following code example demonstrates how to display the current date and time in the title bar of the Web page.

<%@ Page Language="C#" %>

<script runat="server">
  void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)

    if (Page.Header != null)
      Page.Header.Title = "Welcome!  The time is: " + System.DateTime.Now;


  <head id="Head1" runat="server">



    <form id="form1" runat="server">
