NameSpace Error - class is not defined ?

Hi all,

Ive created my own Collection called ClientsCollection (inheriting ArrayList)  under the ASPNET.StarterKit.TimeTracker.BusinessLogicLayer namespace , ie I added the namespace ASPNET.StarterKit.TimeTracker.BusinessLogicLayer at the top of the page.

I also have a ClientList.aspx page where I have defined <%@ import Namespace="ASPNET.StarterKit.TimeTracker.BusinessLogicLayer" %> at the top of the page.

Yet i get an error "ClientsCollection is not defined" for the line
Dim clients as ClientsCollection

Why would i get this if I have defined the class within the namespace and have the appropriate import statement at the top of the ClientList.aspx page ?  

Im using web matrix, is there a place where I need to define which files get included in the compile ?

Any help would be appreciated.

Try to use a fully qualified name at Dim clients as ASPNET.StarterKit.TimeTracker.BusinessLogicLayer.ClientsCollection.

This would tell if the namespace is being refered or not

I have tried the fully qualified name but that didnt work either.
How would you rebuild the dll ?  I havent found anyway to put compile options into web matrix .

TIA

Shouldn't there be:
Dim clients As New ClientsCollection ??

B..m :  That was the problem , what I didnt know and what should be stated in big black bold letters is that Web Matrix does NOT compile classes for you ! Ive read three ASP.NET books and none of them state this.
You also need to put the compiled dlls in the bin directory under the main folder of your project.

Thanks for your help all.
