The following code example demonstrates how to use a nested master page named ChildMasterPage_1 that references the master page that was created in the preceding code example.

<%@ Master Language="C#" MasterPageFile="~/ParentMasterPage_1cs.master" %>  

<asp:Content Runat="Server" ContentPlaceHolderID="ContentPlaceHolder1">  
    <h2>This is the content of a nested Master Page.</h2>  
    <div>  
        <asp:contentplaceholder id="ContentPlaceHolder2" runat="server">  
        </asp:contentplaceholder>  
    </div>  
</asp:Content>  
<%@ Master Language="VB" MasterPageFile="~/ParentMasterPage_1vb.master" %>  

<asp:Content Runat="Server" ContentPlaceHolderID="ContentPlaceHolder1">  
    <h2>This is the content of a nested Master Page.</h2>  
    <div>  
        <asp:contentplaceholder id="ContentPlaceHolder2" runat="server">  
        </asp:contentplaceholder>  
    </div>  
</asp:Content>  

The following code example demonstrates how to use a content page named ContentPage that references the ChildMasterPage_1 that was created in the preceding code example.

<%@ Page Language="C#" MasterPageFile="~/ChildMasterPage_1cs.master" Title="Untitled Page"%>  

<asp:content runat="server" contentplaceholderid="ContentPlaceHolder2">  
This is the content of a Content control.  
</asp:content>  
<%@ Page Language="VB" MasterPageFile="~/ChildMasterPage_1vb.master" Title="Untitled Page"%>
