Create Properties for the above fields you declared it will work

like example below:

int mid;

public int Mid
    get { return mid; }
    set { mid = value; }

ahww...i haven't thought of creating setters and getters :-D

Thank you very much shravan24

i've got to try this one

why am i having this error?
An unhandled exception of type 'System.StackOverflowException' occurred in App_Code.7fwkmzwo.dll

it pointed somewhere in the bold letters below

public int id 
        set { this.Id = id; }
       [B] get { return id; }[/B]

it already worked, i just changed my properties from

public int id 
        set { this.Id = id; }
        get { return id; }

to something like this

public int Id 
        get { return; }
        set { id=value; }

thank you very much, thank you for this site
