Master Page databinding issue

I know what's causing this, but how do I work around it?

*************** *******
file: test.master:
*************** *******

<%@ Master %>
<script runat=server>
void Page_Load(objec t sender, EventArgs e)
{
DataBind();
}
</script>
**<asp:ContentP laceHolder runat=server id=main />**

*************** *******
file: test.aspx
*************** *******

<%@ Page MasterPageFile= "test.maste r" %>
<script runat=server>
public override void DataBind()
{
throw new Exception();
}

string Expression = "I am Databound";
</script>
<asp:Content runat=server contentplacehol derid=main>
<%# Expression %>
</asp:Content>

*************** *******
Problem
*************** *******

DataBind is never called on the aspx file, yet databinding expressions
are still processed. I imagine what's happening is this:

Master page finds all the <asp:content ...controls in the page file.
Removes them and loads them into the master page a la:

foreach(Control c in LoadedPage.Cont rols)
{
Content content = c as Content;
if (content == null) continue;

this.FindContro l(content.Conte ntPlaceHolderID ).Controls.Add( content);
}

//discard the (aspx) page loaded into memory

DataBind the master page.

There is one thing that I'm missing, and that is if I manually call
"DataBind() " within the page, that databind expression is called as
well. I can't call DataBind() at both the master and the page level
without having it fire twice. Did Microsoft give us a delegate that I
can wire up to to get around this?

A bit of un asked for advice, it seems to be better to databind things
individually rather then using a global databind event.

like:

Datagrid1.DataS ource = datatable1
Datagrid1.DataB ind()

This way you will avoid any unwanted triggering of the DataBind.

Hi there, I've created a master page with some controls on it, a Calendar control among others. Now depending on the date(s) selected, the content page needs to be updated. In the masterpage I've created StartDate and EndDate properties, which are basically wrappers around the SelectedDates property from the Calendar control. When I select another date in the Calendar, the page updates normally, but when Page_Load for the content page...

I am writing an ASP.NET 2.0 application that uses master pages. I have some pages that must not be cached on the client.
