I had taken over some code that was originally created .net 1.1 We need to update and bring into .net 2.0, so I opened the solution in VS2008 and went through the converter wizard.

Now, when I am trying to build the solution, I am seeing the below error for all elements (buttons, text boxes, etc...) on all of my aspx pages:

ASP.ar_comments_aspx' does not contain a definition for 'btnSave_Click' and no extension method 'btnSave_Click' accepting a first argument of type 'ASP.ar_comments_aspx' could be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)

AR Comments.aspx

However, as you can see below there is bnSave_Click method for the page...

AR Comments.aspx.cs

namespace CollectionsComments
	/// <summary>
	/// Summary description for WebForm1.
	/// </summary>
	public partial class WebForm1 : System.Web.UI.Page

protected void btnSave_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
			string strCommentsWritten = this.txtComments.Text.ToString();
			// This replace command allows for apostrophes in the comments by doubling them up
			// which doesn't break the string in the SQL statement
			strCommentsWritten = strCommentsWritten.Replace("'", "''");
			// Limit comments to 5000 characters
			if (strCommentsWritten.Length >5000)
				strCommentsWritten = strCommentsWritten.Remove(5000,(strCommentsWritten.Length - 5000));

			// Set UPDATE statement
			string strSqlSelect;
			strSqlSelect = "update dw_collections set ar_comm = '" + strCommentsWritten + 
				"', ar_mod_dt = '" + System.DateTime.Today.ToShortDateString() + "', ar_mod_usr = '" + 
				strUser + "' where clnum = '" + strClient + "' and tkinit = '" + strInitials + "'"; 
			// Set connection information
			string strElite = "server=xxx;uid=xxx;pwd=xxx;database=xxx
			System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection myConnection = new System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection(strElite);

			// Make connection
			System.Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand myCommand = new System.Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand(); 
			myCommand.Connection = myConnection; 
			myCommand.CommandType = CommandType.Text; 
			myCommand.CommandText = strSqlSelect; 
			// Execute Update Statement

			// Clean up
			myCommand = null; 
			myConnection = null;

			// Go back to report

Is there something that I'm overlooking from the conversion? I just can't seem to figure out what the issue is. Any assistance that you could provide would be extremely helpful.


>ASP.ar_comments_aspx' does not contain a definition for 'btnSave_Click'

Error says that the aspnet_compiler cannot find definition of "btnSave_Click" in code-behind.

To solve this problem - Add an event handler for btnSave button (double click on btnSave).
