Page_Load in codebehind page is not working

In an attempt to narrow down an original problem with masterfiles, I've gone back to a really simple set of test files.  Even at their very simplest, I'm not getting any activity from a Page_Load sub.

I have:
Test.aspx (a line of text, an asp:label, and then another line of text) and
Test.aspx.vb (with a Page_Load line to assign text to the asp:label)
(Both attached)

I don't understand why but the Page_Load is not doing anything.
If I move the Page Load sub onto a page without a codebehind page, it works fine.
Is my codebehind file declared properly?

Test.aspx.txt
Test.aspx.vb.txt

Change your Page_Load signature to this:

Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
  'Your code
End Sub

It appears your page Load sub is incorrectly formatted:
Should be:



    Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load

    End Sub

Solved!

I tried the textbook "Protected void Page_Load(object..." declaration and this works fine.
As I've mostly worked in older versions of the framework, a simple "Page_Load" has always done the job in the past.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Really recommend using: http://www.microsoft.com/express/vwd/ 
the free visual web developer from microsoft.  then you will not run into these kinds of little issues - it builds the front page and code behind for you, so you can spend your time focusing on the bigger issues....like coding :)

prariedog - don't know how that happened.  When I awarded the points to JaCrews, I am sure it was the only response showing.
