I have a recived an old web project, which I have translated from VB to C#.
All works fine except one thing, a dropdownlist which is databound will not run a class method.
I'll try to explain better, I have:
1. SqlDataSource sqlOwner with current select: SELECT SYSTEM_ID, OWNER FROM C_OWNER
2. Dropdownlist ddlOwner which has sqlOwner as DataSourceID and OWNER as DataTextField(see code 2)
3. A Common.cs class which lies under App_Code(see code 3)
The custom binding for the ddlOwner is: Common.GetSelectedDDLValue(Eval("OWNER"), string.Empty)
But when I try to run this code I get an error, see attachment error_msg.png
I manage to run the Common methods from the underlying aspx.cs files but not from the aspx files.
I'm kinda new to this, but I though the reason for the App_Code folder was so that the Classes/Methods in there could be used in the aspx files?
Can anyone help me with this, as I have a deadline soon on this project and need to get it working.
