I have a problem that seems so simple to fix but I cannot figure out why this is not working. I have done this in other apps with no problem.

I have an ASPX page that displays data at the top for info only and a Gridview to show related records that can be edited. I use ASP:LABELs to display the data fields at the top of the page. The Code Behind handles retrieving the data during Page Load. What I am getting is the field legend with no data. I have tried everything I know and have tried everything I can Google. The code below shows that I have removed all the data fields and reduced it to a variable (m) that gets set in the Code Behind to "StuffToShow". The resulting page should show

"Case Number: StuffToShow" but only shows "Case Number: "

I cannot figure out why it is doing this. You can see in the areas commented out that I tried other things with no luck. The attached code is not complete and includes only what I thought is relevant to keep it short.

Any ideas or suggestions will be much appreciated. There has got to be a simple reason for this not working that I just cannot see.

Thank you!!!

Below is the code

Have you set a breakpoint and debugged it?

Thanx Cherryhomesj,

I tried doing that but Debug did not seem to work. I did some research and found that there is an issue with Debug and IE8 where Debug stops debugging. After trying to get it to work, I gave up.

What I did do is opened up the designer in VS 2005. I have never used it and do all development in code. The designer showed that 'm' variable had no events attached. I selected Page_Load for the Load event and it worked. Not sure why since I have never had to do this before.

Anyway, the application now works. Thank you for your response to my question. I very much appreciate it.
