Where Is My Control

Where Is My Control

Where Is My Control

It's been a few years since I've done any C# coding and I'd like to brush up on things and get back into the job market. From the FinishButtonClickEvent I'm trying to access the fields I've created in my form (UserInfo), but for some reason VS2010 is not able to resolve them, giving me the message "The name 'txtFirstName' does not exist in the current context.". Here's a sample of the line of code:


lowerFName string;
lowerFName = txtFirstName.Text.Trim().ToLower(); 

How do I go about identifying the 'context' needed to make all my code work?


RE: Where Is My Control

pleas post your HTML markup and code-behind

RE: Where Is My Control

It took a while, but I was able to identify the 'context'.
