I'm having difficulty understanding page inheritance

Hello all

In an effort to enhance my skillbase I am trying to get to grips with Visual Basic (and C#) ASP .NET programming. All is going well except for this error regarding page inheritance. It has cropped up a few times and I though I'd cracked it with an earlier success, but here it comes again.

I have defined my namespaces (ACS.console) in my app_code/basepage.vb file and imported it appropriately into my master page code behind file. I have defined the master page namespace and the class, and referred to the class correctly in the master page header.

Yet still I have this error. I admit to being a noob at VB.NET so I'm hoping for some sympathetic expert to be gentle with me. :)

Thanks in advance, and here is the code...

~/app_code/basepage.vb
----------------------
 
 
imports system
imports system.web
imports system.web.ui
 
namespace ACS.console
 
	public class basepage
	
		inherits page
		
		...
 
	end class
	
end namespace
 
 
 
 
~/console/console.master
------------------------
 
 
<%@ Master Language="VB" CodeFile="console.master.vb" Inherits="ACS.console.master.mastercode" %>
 
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
 
<head>
 
etc. etc.
 
 
 
 
~/console/console.master.vb
---------------------------
 
 
Imports System
Imports System.Xml
Imports System.Web
Imports System.Web.UI
Imports ACS.console
 
 
 
 
 
 
namespace ACS.console.master
 
	public class mastercode
		inherits page
		
		public sub page_load
 
...

Your question is not entirely clear. What exactly is the error?

One thing I have spotted however is that your master page class is inheriting the Page class; it should inherit the MasterPage class.

Compiler Error Message: ASPNET: Make sure that the class defined in this code file matches the 'inherits' attribute, and that it extends the correct base class (e.g. Page or UserControl).

you need a code behind file only if your want to have server side handling.

If u really want to understand how this works review the article on this link.

Also note you can sperately create a page class and hook up with any aspx page. In this way you can create a single page class and should be able to use it as a code behind for any aspx page provided you define it in your aspx page and your code behind class..

I have got a code behind file (console.master.vb) but co-incidentally I have discovered the solution myself.

Instead of inheriting System.Web.UI.Page it needs to inherit System.Web.UI.Masterpage.
