Changing the module title / hiding the module

Sometimes you need to change the title of your container, perhaps because you show a special product and want to have the product name as title or something like that. Another reason is localization of module titles.

Localize your module title

You can localize your module title with a special entry in the corresponding resource file. The mask for this is:


For example:ControlTitle_.Text, ControlTitle_edit.Text, ControlTitle_settings.Text, ...

Important! The ControlKey must be written in lowercase !

Changing module title in Codebehind

You can change the module title to whatever you want when you use this code snippet:

Control ctrl = Globals.FindControlRecursiveDown(this.ContainerControl, "lblTitle");
if (ctrl != null)
    ((Label)ctrl).Text = “New title”;

Important ! You have to insert this in Page_PreRender !

Hiding the module container

If you want to hide the complete module for some circumstances (e.g. if not logged in as admin) you can use

protected void Page_PreRender(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
	this.ContainerControl.Visible = false;

For sure, I will keep this advice in mind from now on. I will make sure to write about it on https://australianwritings.net/ as well. It's just so that more people can be made aware of this technique.
