hi there,

i got that "not all code paths return a value" message when i just created a method like this:

public Category getCategory(string catid)
{
}

since i haven't added any code in it, i don't understand why the complier complained about it.  can anyone give me a hint?

thank you.

Yes,
It expects a variable of the type Category to be returned.  Since you haven't supplied one it gets upset.

You can stub it out this way until you add in your logic...

public Category getCategory(string catid)
{
 return new Category();
}
