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.

Really recommend using: http://www.microsoft.com/express/vwd/

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