enctype="multipart/form-data" for MasterPage



I have a MasterPage. The MasterPage actually contains the <form> tag which is
used throughout the site.

On just certain pages that use that MasterPage, I need the "enctype" for the
<form> tag to be set to:

On the rest of the pages, I do not need this.

How can my specific ASPX page that uses the MasterPage change the
MasterPage's <form enctype=...> just for that page? Or is there a better way?



just set it in code behind inside the pages where it needs to be set:

this.Form.Enctype = "multipart/form-data";

Hi Alex,

As Sergey has suggested, you can use code to programmatically set the
attributes of <form> tag. And you can put the code in a proper page event
such as "Init" event. e.g.

public partial class test_TestContentPage : System.Web.UI.Page
protected void Page_Init(object sender, EventArgs e)
this.Form.Enctype = "multipart/form-data";
