Accessing public methods without creating object...


In VB.NET I have a Class file (called Common) with some code:

Public Shared Sub BindCombos()
End Sub

I could then populate a combobox by doing:

Common.BindCombos(param1, 2 etc)

And this was enough.

I tried doing this in C# and it will not let me do this.

In C# I have to create an object from the class:

Common myCbo = new CommonUtils();
myCbo.BindCbos(param1, 2 etc);

Compiles and runs but is not doing the job i.e. not populating my control.

How can I just create a separate class/code file that has generic functions I can call??
