I have a couple of page layouts and my MasterPage.
My portal has 4 main areas and the way items in the header appear depend on which area the user is (imagine like tabs). This is not the only situation for this behavior in my masterpage.
If this was a asp.net project, I would create the behavior in my masterpage but I'm not seeing any samples on how to do it in SP.
How can I embed "usercontrols" or "code behind" in my SP MasterPage to accomplish a simple thing to do in a simple .Net Project?
Note: I'm creating a branding solution (WSP) in VisualStudio 2012.
