Note - IHeadElementHelper

You can do these tasks by using IHeadElementHelper service instead of using <Title> and <Meta> components.

You can get the IHeadElementHelper service instnace by "Dependency Injection" mechanism.

@inject IHeadElementHelper HeadElementHelper
@using static Toolbelt.Blazor.HeadElement.MetaElement
...
@code {
  protected override async Task OnInitializedAsync()
  {
    await HeadElementHelper.SetTitleAsync("Wow!");
    await HeadElementHelper.SetMetaElementsAsync(
      ByName("description", "Foo bar..."),
      ByProp("og:title", "WoW!")
    );
    ...

B. Change "meta" elements

You can also add or override "meta" elements at runtime dynamically using <Meta> component like this.

@* This is "Pages/Counter.razor" *@
@page "/counter"

<Meta Property="ogp:title" Content="Counter" />

C. Server-side pre-rendering support

If you want to get srever-side pre-rendering support, do this.

  1. Add Toolbelt.Blazor.HeadElement.ServerPrerendering package to your project like this.
dotnet add package Toolbelt.Blazor.HeadElement.ServerPrerendering
  1. Register "Head Element Server Prerendering" middleware at your server-side Blazor app's Startup, before app.UseStaticFiles().
using Toolbelt.Blazor.Extensions.DependencyInjection; // <- Add this, and...

public class Startup
{
  public void Configure(IApplicationBuilder app)
  {
    app.UseHeadElementServerPrerendering(); // <- Add this.
    ...
    app.UseStaticFiles()
    ...
