Show Notes:

This show is a video demo of creating a nested master page in Visual Studio 2008.

The source code for the parent master page is:

<%@ Master Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="MasterPageParentSimple.master.cs" Inherits="MasterPageParentSimple" %>

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">

<html xmlns="">
<head runat="server">
    <title>Untitled Page</title>
    <asp:ContentPlaceHolder id="head" runat="server">
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
        Simple Parent Master Page.<br />
        <asp:ContentPlaceHolder id="ContentPlaceHolder1" runat="server">

The source code for the example child master page is:

<%@ Master Language="C#" MasterPageFile="~/MasterPageParentSimple.master" AutoEventWireup="false" CodeFile="MasterPageChildSimple.master.cs" Inherits="MasterPageChildSimple" %>
<asp:Content ID="Content1" ContentPlaceHolderID="head" Runat="Server">
<asp:Content ID="Content2" ContentPlaceHolderID="ContentPlaceHolder1" Runat="Server">
    Simple Child Master Page<br />
    The location of the ContentPlaceHolder was the one hangup I had.<br />
    <asp:ContentPlaceHolder ID="Content3" runat="server">

The source code for the example simple out page is:

<%@ Page Language="C#" MasterPageFile="~/MasterPageChildSimple.master" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="DefaultSimpleMasterPageExample.aspx.cs" Inherits="DefaultSimpleMasterPageExample" Title="Untitled Page" %>
<asp:Content ID="Content1" ContentPlaceHolderID="Content3" Runat="Server">
    this is some basic content. this is more content.

Here is some exact output (not a perfect match, but close).
