If you've worked with ASP.NET Master Pages, you've no doubt taken advantage of automatic URL re-basing within the HtmlHead control. This bit of ASP.NET magic helps assure that a content page has access to the correct resources:

<head id="head1" runat="server">

On some occasions however, it is necessary to have complete control over the positioning and styling of each element of date and time information.

DateTime theDate = DateTime.Parse("3 Jan 2007 21:25:30"); string result; result = theDate.ToString("d-MM-yy");//result ="3-01-07" result = theDate.ToString("HH:mm");//result ="21:25" result = theDate.ToString("h:mm tt");//result ="9:25 PM" Available Picture Formatting CodesThe above example shows several formats and the results.

"It is an error to use a section registered as allowDefinition='MachineToApplication' beyond application level" in

Very recently, I have got this error message when try to browsing my developed application in So I try to solve in many ways but failed then move to google...:). I got some nice share with you:

This error occurs primarily out of 2 scenarios.

First scenario:

When you create an new web application using visual, it automatically creates the virtual directory and configures it as an application.

However, if you manually create the virtual directory and it is not configured as an application, then you will not be able to browse the application and may get the above error. The debug information you get as mentioned above, is applicable to this scenario.
