Hello TrialUser

Are your classes marked as public? Adding a namespace to them can also be of help.

yes the classes are marked public. i tried adding a namespace to the class as

namespace test1
put my class here
end namespace

then in my webform did
import test1

however i still cant access these clases. any suggestions or ideas would b great

Is your all classes/pages in same name space.

if you hve your .cs pages (outside of app_code) have NameSpace MySpace1

then your app_code folder should hve parent namespace MySpace1
and underit, you can define its own namespace.

Yes All classes should be public.

I created it as Project not website. Can i not use app_code? please help thanks.

You need to create a new ASP .NET website.

Have a look here as to how:

File -> New -> Website

Then select an appropriate type like in the image attached.
