.html data file inside an asp.net page?

I have a bunch of html pages and a database table with links to them.

I want to dynamically display those pages inside a set location on an
exsisting asp.net 2.0 page when a link is selected, but I don't want to
change the html pages which will contain a duplicate set of <html>
tags.

What's the best way to implement this? WebParts? Does anybody have any
simple example?

Howdy,

If i got you right, html content is stored in database (each entry is a
complete html page - <html>...</html>). now, you want to display entries in
one page without affecting page's look and feel (as content consists of
<html>...</html>),. there are two choices
1. <iframe src="htmlGenera tor.aspx?conten tID=1">
use iframe that points to the aspx page that generates html from database
(remove automatically generated html and use
Reposnse.Write( htmlContentFrom dataBase in code behind)) - adventage, you make
sure content is treated as separate page
2. render html content directly to div or any other placeholder i.e.
<div runat="server" id="content1">
code behind: content1.InnerH tml = htmlfromDatabas e
However, most of the browsers know taht content containing <html></html>
should be treated specially, (automatically removing
<html><head></head><body></body></htmlif applicable or wrapping content
into iframe)

I hope this helps

sorry, the html is in a seperate file, what's in the database is the
location of that file. How would I do that?

Hi Jobs,

private string LoadHtmlFromFil e(string path)
{
using (System.IO.Stre amReader reader = System.IO.File. OpenText(path))
{
return reader.ReadToEn d();
}
}

Further to my previous post, above function returns content of the text file.

hope this helps

I am looking for a way to capture the HTML file generated by an ASP.Net application (just as is sent back to the client) and save it to a designated spot on the web server. Here's a bit of background: our application has a Report function that dynamically creates a new page containing various tables of real-time data (through the C# code "behind" the .aspx file). We have a new requirement to add a file save function to this report page. ...
