Member modifier 'public' must precede the member type and name


Hello.

I am trying to declare a boolean variable in C# that is public. I keep getting this error message though. Can someone help me figure out what I am doing wrong?

Error      32      Member modifier 'public' must precede the member type and name      C:\KMR\KRMMasterPage.master.cs      10      5      C:\KMR\

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
 
public partial class KRMasterPage : System.Web.UI.MasterPage
{
 
    public bool isVisible; // Public must precede the member type and name
    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
       isVisible  = false;
    }
}

Sometimes the compiler issues really strange errors for things that are actually caused by other problems. Here's a few ideas that may cause freak-errors:

 - You haven't included your code within a namespace
 - isVisible may conflict with a previous member of System.Web.UI.MasterPage
 - If this class is implemented in another file, the error may be caused there, but manifesting here, especially if that class is nested within a namespace in that other file (I say this because you've delcared this class as "partial").
