'GetUser' is not a member of 'membership'

Hi all,

I was taking an Intro to ASP.NET online class. There is a lesson where we create a login page, but I am getting an error about the 'GetUser' attribute of the Membership class.  Am I missing a namespace or something?  I know that "GetUser" is a member of the Membership class as stated here:  http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.web.security.membership.getuser(VS.80).aspx, but I can't figure out why I'm getting the squiggly lines under "GetUser" and the compile errors.

After the user creates their login, they can view their profile or edit their profile. Well, when I create a user, I am getting the following errors when I click on the "view profile" or "edit profile" links.  I can not view those pages.  Could someone help me with this?

Here is the error for VIEWPROFILE.ASPX:

        SqlDataSource2.UpdateParameters("ImageAddress").DefaultValue = TextBox1.Text

        SqlDataSource2.UpdateParameters("ProfileText").DefaultValue = TextBox2.Text

SalmanZG, would you provide exactly how to code this?

FYI to Experts Exchange forum:  

I'm a student of ASP.NET.  The code I provided has been copied and pasted from the online class courseware.  I'm trying to complete an assignment and this is code that is supposed to work, but I am getting an error.  Since the discussion is closed, I can't ask my fellow students or the instructor, therefore, I seek your help.

Thanks in advance.

Try changing line 7 to:
UserID = membership.GetUser().ProviderUserKey.ToString

Thanks, SalmanZG, I will try that.  Should I put replace all GetUser with GetUser()?  It is in more than one place

SalmanZG, including the "()" does not work.  Attached is a screen shot.

you must either import the membership definition or use the full name as in

System.Web.Security.Membership.GetUser()

To import it you would add
Imports System.Web.Security.Membership
at the top of the code before the Class statement.

Thanks, JohnBPrice,  I thought a namespace had to be added (although I didn't know what it was called) and that is the answer I was seeking.  I don't know why our instructor did not include that step.  I will do the import and let you know what happens.  I'm going to do the assignment from scratch for a clean start.
