The Page Property (of the Page Object)

The Page property of the Page Object, provides property-like access to data shared between pages and layout pages.

You can use (add) your own properties to the Page property:

  • Page.Title
  • Page.Version
  • Page.anythingyoulike

The pages property is very helpful. For instance, it makes it possible to set the page title in content files, and use it in the layout file:


Page.Title="Home Page"

<h1>Welcome to W3Schools</h1>

<h2>Web Site Main Ingredients</h2>

<p>A Home Page (Default.cshtml)</p>
<p>A Layout File (Layout.cshtml)</p>
<p>A Style Sheet (Site.css)</p>
