Configuring Pages and Controls in IIS 7

Applies To: Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Vista

ASP.NET Web pages include extra elements that ASP.NET recognizes and processes when the page runs. ASP.NET pages can also contain custom, reusable controls. These custom controls are processed on the server. This lets you use server code to set ASP.NET Web page properties.

IISĀ 7 lets you configure the following ASP.NET page and user controls settings:

  • Behavior settings: for example, whether the Web page maintains its view state and the view state of any server controls it contains when the current page request ends.

  • General settings: for example, namespaces that are included for all pages.

  • Compilation settings: for example, whether pages are compiled or interpreted.

  • Services: for example, whether session state is enabled.


For information about the levels at which you can perform these procedures, and the modules, handlers, and permissions that are required for these procedures, see Pages and Controls Feature Requirements (IIS 7).
