Getting the value returned from a method within a class library in a variable within a click event

I have a method within a class library in this format in a project.


public system.string evaluate(string key, string value)
{
      return result
}

I call this method in my windows C# form in this format


**Windows form C# application

private void button1_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
      
      try
      {
            string test = txted.Text;
            string testvalue = txtvalue.Text;
            string returnvalue;
            ClassLibProject cldp = new classLibProject
            returnvalue = gd.encrypt(test,testvalue);
      }
      
      catch(Exception ex)
      {
            MessageBox.Show(ex.ToString());
      }
}



I am unable to get any value in the returnvalue variable and all
I get is "Error:Identifier 'returnvalue' out of scope.


The method evaluate works very well and when I step through it,
it returns exactly what I want to see but by the time it gets
to the returnvalue value, I am not able to get the value.

Thanks.

Are you trying to access the returnvalue variable from outside the try block? if so, you need to declare the returnvalue variable outside the try block:

private void button1_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
     string returnvalue = null;

     try
     {
          string test = txted.Text;
          string testvalue = txtvalue.Text;

          ClassLibProject cldp = new classLibProject
          returnvalue = gd.encrypt(test,testvalue);
     }
     catch(Exception ex)
     {
          MessageBox.Show(ex.ToString());
     }

     //can access returnvalue here
}
