Page.Header Property


Gets the document header for the page if the head element is defined with a runat=server in the page declaration.

Namespace:   System.Web.UI
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

public HtmlHead Header { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Web.UI.HtmlControls.HtmlHead

An HtmlHead containing the page header.

The Header property gets a reference to an HtmlHead object that you can use to set document header information for the page. The HtmlHead allows you to add information such as style sheets, style rules, a title, and metadata to the head element.


Adding styles programmatically using the methods of the IStyleSheet interface during asynchronous postbacks is not supported. When you add AJAX capabilities to a Web page, asynchronous postbacks update regions of the page without updating the whole page. For more information, see Microsoft Ajax Overview.

Legacy Code Example

The following code example demonstrates how to access the HtmlHead control programmatically using the Header property. A title element and style element are added to the head element of the page.
