ASP.NET - Which one is better? Update Panel in Master Page or Update Panel in Child Pages

Asked By Boopathiraja K on 28-Sep-12 12:10 AM
Hi All,

I am developing a web app with the master and child pages.

1. While processing any events in the child pages (like button click), I wish the master page should not be render. In this case in which page, I have to put the update panel?
  a. For the contentplaceholder in the master page or
  b. For the child pages

2. In some of the child pages, I have used the Multiview concepts? In this case , will it requires to put update panel for both all the views or it is ok to have a single update panel for the whole form?


Looking forward your answer to proceed further... Thanks in advance

This depends on functionality area.

If you have same type of design for all child page and functionality area is also same then you can put UpdatePanel in master page.

otherwise put UpdatePanel in child page.
