It depends on what kind of a functionality you require in the second aspx (the one you are calling).

If you are just trying to create a dynamic header, you can try looking at user controls.

If you still want to pursue with a complete embedded page, you can use Iframes for the purpose.

In PHP we using include() we include any php page , method is given below


as this type we can insert one page in another page

iframe could be an option !

Try using asp.net master pages to achieve your effect.But all the same clientside technologies are best for effects, browser has the final word anyway.

Using a master page will allow you to define the overall structure for the pages, and set a default header for all pages, that you can then change on a page to page basis, if you so choose.

I'm trying my best to stay to the strict versions of the HTML and XHTML standards, and last I looked, iFrames aren't approved anymore.
