error: BC30451:Name 'IsNumeric' is not declared???

Hi there,

im having a problem compliling a custom control to a dll using dos

here is the code

Imports System.ComponentModel
Imports System.Web.UI
Imports System.Web

Namespace TestYear
<DefaultProperty("Text"), ToolboxData("<{0}:PubYear runat=server></{0}:PubYear>")> Public Class PubYear
Inherits System.Web.UI.WebControls.TextBox
Implements INamingContainer

Private _text As String = "" 
Private _response As String

Public Sub New()
Text = " "
End Sub

Public Overrides Property Text() As String
Get
Return _text
End Get
Set(ByVal Value As String)
_text = Value
End Set
End Property

Public Property Response() As String
Get
Return _response
End Get
Set(ByVal Value As String)
_response = Value
End Set
End Property

Private Sub PubYear_TextChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.TextChanged
If Text = "" Then
Response = "Enter the Contact Number"
Else
If Not IsNumeric(Text) Then
Response = "Enter a valid Contact Number"
Else
Response = "" 
End If
End If
End Sub

End Class
End Namespace



When i go to compile i get the folowing error message:

error: BC30451:Name 'IsNumeric' is not declared

Can any one understand why, i wouldnt think it would need to be as i was under the impression it is a built in function???

any help would be appreciated!  Thanks!

If you look in the help file for IsNumeric, you will notice that it is in the Microsoft.VisualBasic namespace.  By default, Windows Forms applications include a reference to this namespace, but Web applications don't.
