My code is attached.

Towards the bottom of the page, there's a series of input fields that are being sent to paypal (search for Aggregated items). I'm attempting to put the field that's carrying the total amount in the form and I get this message:

Hi brucegust,
I've noticed that you put the label control inside hidden's field? Try strip out the label control from the hidden field and set it as server control
eg:

aspx
============
   <input type="hidden" name="amount" value="<asp:Label ID="lblGrandTotal" runat="server" Text="$0.00" Font-Bold="True" Font-Size="Large"></asp:Label>">

Should be
   <input type="hidden" name="amount" value="$0.00" id="amount" runat="server">

c#
======
    amount.Text = Convert.ToString(String.Format("{0:c}", valTotal));

Some amendment:
Use "value" instead of "text" property for HtmlInputHidden control
eg:
amount.value = Convert.ToString(String.Format("{0:c}", valTotal));

x_com...

I'm thinking we're on to something but the fact that I'm still very new to C#, I'm obviously missing something.

Where do I put "amount.Text = Convert.ToString(String.Format("{0:c}", valTotal));" There's another file called invoice.aspx.cs. Does it go there? Sorry for being so thick, but there it is.

After some additional playing around, I tried this:

This is a portion of the code on the invoice.aspx.cs file that appeared to be calculating the grand total. I put your cs code in it thinking this would be cake and ice cream. On trying it, I got the following error:


Compilation Error

What am I doing wrong?


private void calculateGrandTotal()

    {

        //this.total = this.otherCharges + this.subtotal + this.shipping;

        //lblGrandTotal.Text = total.ToString("c");

        //Double val1 = Convert.ToDouble(lblTotalDue.Text);

        //Double val2 = Convert.ToDouble(lblTotal2.Text);

        //Double val3 = Convert.ToDouble(lblTotal3.Text);

        //Double val4 = Convert.ToDouble(lblTotal4.Text);

        Double valTotal = Convert.ToDouble(total) + Convert.ToDouble(otherCharges) + Convert.ToDouble(shipping) + Convert.ToDouble(otrCharges);

        lblGrandTotal.Text = Convert.ToString(String.Format("{0:c}", valTotal));

        amount.value = Convert.ToString(String.Format("{0:c}", valTotal));

Hi brucegust,
Have you put a hidden object named "amount" as proposed previously in aspx page? Lastly, make sure the control is being declared in the c# code-behind - "invoice.aspx.designer.cs" file. Please clarify if you need any further assistance.
eg:
protected global::System.Web.UI.HtmlControls.HtmlInputHidden amount;

Note: I'm using VS.net 2008 for the testing.
