How do you use public application method in markup

I have an application class method defined as follows:

Public Class AppHelper

    Public Shared Function MyFunction(ByVal sInput As String)
        Return "MyFunction." & sInput
    End Function

End Class

Open in new window


In my markup I want to do something like this:
    <div>
        <%# AppHelper.MyFunction(DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "MyField"))  %>
    </div>

Open in new window


But building the application says AppHelper is not defined. If I change the call to just MyFunction(...), it says MyFunction is not defined. I can get around this by moving the function to the base page class but is there any way to call it directly from the AppHelper class?

Thanks in advance.

Removing the # symbol didn't work. It still gives the same problem. Also, this function is actually inside another function which I think requires the # symbol. When I removed the symbol, that part of the markup didn't display.

Hmm, i'm not sure of any other way using markup. You could try wrapping the call to AppHelper in a method in your page class, or perhaps in your page's base class. Then call that method in your markup. That would work.

That's what I've currently got it place. I have the method defined in a class and I then call that from a method with the same name in my page's base class. I was just wondering if there was a way not to have to create the proxy method.

I want to wait a day or two to see if anyone else has a way to bypass the proxy method before I close this out.
