VB.NET scope of property values

rss2 asked
Last Modified: 2008-01-09
I am using properties in vb.net for an asp.net web site.

On the firstpage.aspx, I'm setting the username variable. When the submit button is clicked, I'm getting the value and passing it into a stored procedure.

I seem to lose that value that I just set, and I suspect it has to do with where I'm declaring a reference to the class where the properties are set incorrectly.

Here's my code: In LoadData() the value strGroup_Name is Nothing.

Imports System.Text
Imports System.Data
Imports System.Collections
Imports System.Data.SqlClient
Imports System.DirectoryServices

Partial Class Homepage
    Inherits System.Web.UI.Page

    Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
        Dim sv As New SetVars
        If Not IsPostBack Then
            sv.strGroup_Name = "UK-GLBL-xxxxxxx" ' Will get from Active Directory
            sv.strUser_Name = "MEADWAYP" 'Request.ServerVariables("AUTH_USER").ToString
        End If
    End Sub

    Protected Sub LoadData()
        Dim conn As New SqlConnection
        Dim cmd As New SqlCommand
        Dim connstring As String
        Dim da As New SqlDataAdapter
        Dim dt As New DataTable
        Dim sv As New SetVars

        connstring = Connector.ConnectStringBuild
        conn.ConnectionString = connstring
        cmd.Connection = conn
        cmd.CommandText = "ACT_GET_HOMEPAGE_DETAILS"
        cmd.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure

        cmd.Parameters.Add("@GROUP_NAME", SqlDbType.VarChar).Value = sv.strGroup_Name

        Me.Repeater1.DataSource = dt

        conn = Nothing
        cmd = Nothing
    End Sub

Why isn't it set?
