Hi!
I need to add a reference to a dll file in my codebehind file.(E.g. reference to System.DirectoryServices.dll in default.aspx.vb file) I know how to do this in Visual studio, but how do you do this in a texteditor like notepad??
Please help me on this one..

Hi frodehoe,

open the vbprog file in notepad

scroll to the <References> Node

and put something like this in there:

<Reference
                    Name = "System"
                    AssemblyName = "System"
                    HintPath = "..\..\..\..\WINNT\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322\System.dll"
                />

obviously changing it for your dll

Thanks for the quick answer, but I still got the same error. Shouldn't I put this in the codebehind file somewhere?
I use a asp.net file Search.aspx and a codebehind file Search.aspx.vb

you will need to recompile the project before it will take effect - have you recompiled

The codebehind file should be named like Search.vb add the following

Imports System.DirectoryServices
Public class CodeBehind
End class

the search.aspx will contain following page directive

<%@ Page Inherits="CodeBehind" Src="Search.vb" %>

Alternatively in search.aspx you can have the following page directive
<%@ Import Namespace="System.DirectoryServices"%>
