Calling Master Page methods directly from Content Page inline code(.aspx file)

P: n/a
Can it be done?

( This is a related issue to my recent post...
...but with a twist. )

Here's the scenario:

Method in MyMaster.master.cs:
public void Logout(object sender, EventArgs e)
Response.Write("You are logged out!");
Code in MyContent.aspx:
<%@ MasterType VirtualPath="~/MyMaster.master" %>
<asp:Button ID="btnLogout" runat="server" Text="Logout"
OnClick="Master.Logout" />
Browse to the page, and in big red letters:
Server Application Unavailable
Application log in Event Viewer shows:
Event Type: Error
Event Source: ASP.NET 2.0.50727.0
Event Category: None
Event ID: 1000
Description: aspnet_wp.exe (PID: 3368) stopped unexpectedly.

This happens every time that 'Master.' is used directly in the .aspx

A workaround is to call Master.Logout from within a MyContent.aspx.cs
method, then reference the latter method in MyContent.aspx.

MyContent.aspx *is* seeing the method in MyMaster.master.cs, because
it will throw errors for certain things like leaving out the overloads
in the Logout method declaration.

Is there a correct syntax for calling a Master Page method directly
from inline code, or should it just not be done?

Yes it can!

The method has to be set in code, though:

btnLogout.Click += new EventHandler(Master.Logout);
