    I'm having a little trouble understanding why you want to change the title of the aspx page from the ascx control when you can change the title directly in the aspx page. Please clarify.

    This question gets asked so many times that it amazes me.

    Basically you have to add a public property to the UserControl. Then you can get/set the value in the parent page. Example:

    In the User Control (ascx):
    Create a public property:
          private string m_ValueToPass = string.Empty;
          public string ValueToPass
                get { return this.m_ValueToPass; }
                set { m_ValueToPass = value; }

    In the parent (aspx):
    Create a global reference to the User Control
          protected YourUserControl YourUserControl1;

    Then to get the property:
          string newValue = YourUserControl1.ValueToPass;
    or to set the property:
          YourUserControl1.ValueToPass = "some value";

    Yup that is the way to do it. However, the thing that I'm not clear about is why you would want to set the title for the aspx page in the ascx control when you can set it in the aspx page?

    If you want to change the title programatically in the code-behind of the aspx page, you can use this.Title.

    I dunno! Maybe he's got a TextBox or something in the UC that lets his users change the page title? Just guessing though.

    Sorry about that. Something from 2.0.

    Try the following (it's off the top of my head, so hopefully it should work):


    < title runat="server" id="pageTitle" > < / title >

    ASPX Code-behind

    protected System.Web.UI.HtmlControl.HtmlGenericControl pageTitle;

    public string PageTitle
       get { return pageTitle.InnerText; }
       set { pageTitle.InnerText = value; }

    ASCX Code-behind

    ASPXClassName.PageTitle = "someValue";

    I believe that's in 2.0 and not in 1.0 or 1.1 so, in the aspx file, make your <title> tag look like this:
    <title><asp:literal id="controlTitleLiteral" runat="server" text="Default Title Goes Here"></asp:literal></title>

    That should add this to your CodeBehind file (if it doesn't, add it):
         protected System.Web.UI.WebControls.Literal controlTitleLiteral;

    Then to change the title:
         this.controlTitleLiteral.Text = "Some New Title";

    In ASP.Net 2.0:  ((System.Web.UI.Page)this.Parent.Page).Title = "My Title";

    Maybe user is loading loading different ascx files due to conditions
