Newbie - Help with tutorial (Progress Bar)

Hello,

I'm trying to following a fairly basic example: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/323116

I got up to the bit where it says "Add the following code to the class module of the UserControl, just after the "Windows Form Designer generated code" section. Note In Visual Studio 2005, put the following code in the SmoothProgressBar.cs file."

The content of SmoothProgressBar.cs is given below.

The problem is that wherever I place the code I get errors - Am I missing something obvious ?

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Data;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Windows.Forms;
 
namespace SmoothProgressBar
{
    public partial class SmoothProgressBar : UserControl
    {
        public SmoothProgressBar()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
        }
    }
}

This is my file with the example code in it... it builds fine like this
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Data;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Windows.Forms;
 
namespace SmoothProgressBar
{
    public partial class SmoothProgressBar : UserControl
    {
        public SmoothProgressBar()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
        }
        int min = 0;	// Minimum value for progress range
        int max = 100;	// Maximum value for progress range
        int val = 0;		// Current progress
        Color BarColor = Color.Blue;		// Color of progress meter
 
        protected override void OnResize(EventArgs e)
        {
            // Invalidate the control to get a repaint.
            this.Invalidate();
        }
 
        protected override void OnPaint(PaintEventArgs e)
        {
            Graphics g = e.Graphics;
            SolidBrush brush = new SolidBrush(BarColor);
            float percent = (float)(val - min) / (float)(max - min);
            Rectangle rect = this.ClientRectangle;
 
            // Calculate area for drawing the progress.
            rect.Width = (int)((float)rect.Width * percent);
 
            // Draw the progress meter.
            g.FillRectangle(brush, rect);
 
            // Draw a three-dimensional border around the control.
            Draw3DBorder(g);
 
            // Clean up.
            brush.Dispose();
