If you are creating a custom application page, your page must inherit from the LayoutsPageBase base class and must use one of the dynamic tokens listed below. Dynamic tokens:

~masterurl/default.master – The application page references the master page file that is stored in the MasterUrl property.

~masterurl/custom.master – The application page references the master page file that is stored in the CustomMasterUrl property.



I don't really understand your question or requirements, but:

  1. Deploy your HTML file to _layouts folder
  2. Deploy your file to any document library


Or your page is not a simple HTMl markup and needs to inherit from ApplicationPage?

  • I want to add my html contents to my custom aspx page in layouts.I want to know whether master page is mandatory for application pages?
