The type or namespace name 'Server' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)

AerosSaga, when you ask did I import the namespace, what do you mean? I thought the "using" directive was all I needed

At the top of your class like so:

Imports System.Web.HttpServerUtility
Imports System.Security.Principal
Public Class _Default

Is this compile or run-time error?

Server is a property of System.Web.UI.Page class which is a shortcut to instance of HttpServerUtility class. You shouldn't be able to make a method call like "Server.UrlEncode" if your class is not System.Web.UI.Page or inherits from that class. If that is the case use HttpServerUtility.UrlEncode() instead.

Page.Server Property

HttpServerUtility.UrlEncode Method

Thanks folks, what really puzzled me was that i could call Server.UrlEncode in my Page_Load function (where the class is a child of System.Web.UI.Page), but not in another class which I defined myself. So I came to the same conclusion which jhenry spelled out, and qualified the UrlEncode function with System.Web.HttpUtility.UrlEncode()

THanks for the help
