VS 2003 vs 2005

hi there,
I have an application open in VS 2003 and by mistake someone else open it in 2005. When the conversion was done new code was added to my VB file is there a way to change back to what is supposed to be?

here is part of the code that was added to the new vb file:
Namespace CE_inquiry


Partial Class CEviolations_list
    Inherits System.Web.UI.Page

    Dim arrFileNames() As String

this lines are giving me an error that a declaration is expected
Thanks

Hi jsctechy,

>> and by mistake someone else open it in 2005

That's why backups and/or VSS usage is important!

Replace Partial by Public.

Cheers!

yeah i know but the original code was removed long time ago and now that they want to make some changes we have an old copy of the original code.

Now when i change the partial to public i got some errors on the labels as not declared.
also i have an error on this line:
 Dim mConnectString As String = ConfigurationSettings.App9Settings("HLWD11ConnectString") 'App9Settings is not a menber of System.configuration.configurationsettings

when i try to open the ASPX file i got also an error:
This file could not be loaded into the web forms designer. Please correct the following error and then try loading it again.
Visual Studio cannot open a designer for the file because the class within it does not inherit from a class that can be visually designed.
Make sure all of the classes used in the page are built or reference in the project.
is there a way to by pass this?

jsctechy,

You surely have a file that is having the same name as your vb file but with .designer.vb in it. Open this file in NotePad, copy its content and paste it into your main class.

in order to solve the last issue what i did i change the first line that currently have this:
<%@ Page Language="vb" AutoEventWireup="false" Inherits="CE_inquiry.CEviolations_list" CodeFile="CEviolations_list.aspx.vb" %>

by removing the inherits "" and adding the codebehing to whatever the file is.
but i can not get the labels thing to work right so i still need some help
Thanks

on my ASPX page i have a lblErrorDesc that will handle my errors but since i'm trying to get it to work it needs to be declare first.
here is where i'm getting my errors:
If Session("ErrorDesc") <> "" Then
                lblErrorDesc.Text = Session("ErrorDesc") & "<BR><BR>Please go back to the <A HREF=""CEviolations_query.aspx"">search screen</A> and revise your search."
                lblErrorDesc.Visible = True
            ElseIf Not Page.IsPostBack Then
                ViewState("SortOrder") = "STREET ADDRESS"
                GetViolations(ViewState("SortOrder"))
                If Session("ErrorDesc") <> "" Then
                    lblErrorDesc.Text = Session("ErrorDesc") & "<BR><BR>Please go back to the <A HREF=""CEviolations_query.aspx"">search screen</A> and revise your search."
                    lblErrorDesc.Visible = True
                End If
            End If

lblErrorDesc is not declare

jsctechy,

If you don't have many controls on this page, why not just create a new page in VS.Net 2003, add your controls and then copy the code you already have?

jsctechy,

I am afraid that you will have to rebuild most part of it. You can try to copy as much as you can from .designer.vb file to your new form.
