is inaccessible due to its protection level

Newbie to ASP.NET / C#

I just moved my code from inline to code behind and I am getting this error:

'newsDisplay.Prev_Click(object, System.EventArgs)' is inaccessible due to its protection level

Can someone tell me what it is I have declared wrong?  I imaginge its to do with public LinkButton btnPrev; but I thought public was about as unproteced as could be.

Thanks




Heres my aspx file:

<% @Page Language="C#" Debug="true" Src="NewsReader.cs" Inherits="newsDisplay" %>


<html>
      <head>
            <title>Paging with ASP.NET - DataSet Example - c#</title>
            <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
      </head>
      <body>
            <form runat="server">
                  <font size="-1" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"><asp:label id="pageNumber" runat="server" /></font>
                  <asp:DataList id="theDataList" runat="server">
                        <ItemTemplate>
                              <h1><%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "NewsSubject") %></h1>
                              <%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "NewsContent") %>
                        </ItemTemplate>
                        <separatortemplate>
                              <hr color="#0099FF" />
                        </separatortemplate>
                  </asp:DataList>
      
                  <asp:LinkButton id="btnPrev" Text="&lt;" OnClick="Prev_Click" runat="server" />
                  <asp:LinkButton id="btnNext" Text="&gt;" OnClick="Next_Click" runat="server" />
            </form>
</html>


And the CS file:

using System;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
using System.Data;
using System.Data.OleDb;

public class newsDisplay : Page
{
      PagedDataSource pagedData = new PagedDataSource();

       public LinkButton btnPrev;
       public LinkButton btnNext;
       public DataList theDataList;
 
      void Page_Load(Object obj, EventArgs e)
      {
            doPaging();
      }
      
      public DataTable getTheData()
      {
                  DataSet DS = new DataSet();
                  OleDbConnection strConnect = new OleDbConnection("Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=C:\\InetPub\\Database\\sixfive.mdb");
                  OleDbDataAdapter objSQLAdapter = new OleDbDataAdapter("SELECT * FROM News", strConnect);
                  objSQLAdapter.Fill(DS, "customers");
                  
                  return DS.Tables[0];
      }
      
      void doPaging()
      {
            pagedData.DataSource = getTheData().DefaultView;
            pagedData.AllowPaging = true;
            pagedData.PageSize = 5;
            
            try {
                  pagedData.CurrentPageIndex = Int32.Parse(Request["Page"].ToString());
            } catch (Exception ex) {
                  pagedData.CurrentPageIndex = 0;
            }
      
            btnPrev.Visible = (!pagedData.IsFirstPage);
            btnNext.Visible = (!pagedData.IsLastPage);
            
            theDataList.DataSource = pagedData;
            theDataList.DataBind();
      }
      
      void Prev_Click(Object obj, EventArgs e)
      {
            Response.Redirect(Request.CurrentExecutionFilePath + "?Page=" + (pagedData.CurrentPageIndex - 1));
      }
      
      void Next_Click(Object obj, EventArgs e)
      {
            Response.Redirect(Request.CurrentExecutionFilePath + "?Page=" + (pagedData.CurrentPageIndex + 1));
      }
}

Hi,

you have to replace these
     void Prev_Click(Object obj, EventArgs e)
     {
          Response.Redirect(Request.CurrentExecutionFilePath + "?Page=" + (pagedData.CurrentPageIndex - 1));
     }
     
     void Next_Click(Object obj, EventArgs e)
     {
          Response.Redirect(Request.CurrentExecutionFilePath + "?Page=" + (pagedData.CurrentPageIndex + 1));
     }
with
     public void Prev_Click(Object obj, EventArgs e)
     {
          Response.Redirect(Request.CurrentExecutionFilePath + "?Page=" + (pagedData.CurrentPageIndex - 1));
     }
     
     public void Next_Click(Object obj, EventArgs e)
     {
          Response.Redirect(Request.CurrentExecutionFilePath + "?Page=" + (pagedData.CurrentPageIndex + 1));
     }
