DevExpress code doesn't work

I have the following code that works in a ASPxGridViewDemo but doesn't work when I copied it to a separate solution in VS 2010:

It says that for the hlItem "The name 'hlItem' does not exist in the current contex".

What's wrong?

using System;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.ComponentModel;
using DevExpress.Web.ASPxHeadline;

public partial class DemoNavBarItemTemplate : UserControl {
    private static readonly object EventHeadlineDataBinding = new object();
    private bool isSelected;

    public string ContentText {
        get { return hlItem.ContentText; }
        set { hlItem.ContentText = value; }
    }
    public string NavigateUrl {
        get { return hlItem.NavigateUrl; }
        set { hlItem.NavigateUrl = value; }
    }
    public bool IsSelected {
        get { return isSelected; }
        set { isSelected = value; }
    }

    // Events
    [Category("Action")]
    public event EventHandler HeadlineDataBinding {
        add { Events.AddHandler(EventHeadlineDataBinding, value); }
        remove { Events.RemoveHandler(EventHeadlineDataBinding, value); }
    }

    protected override void OnDataBinding(EventArgs e) {
        base.OnDataBinding(e);
        RaiseHeadlineDataBinding();
        if(IsSelected)
            hlItem.NavigateUrl = "";
    }
    protected void RaiseHeadlineDataBinding() {
        EventArgs args = new EventArgs();
        OnHeadlineDataBinding(args);
    }
    protected void OnHeadlineDataBinding(EventArgs e) {
        EventHandler handler = Events[EventHeadlineDataBinding] as EventHandler;
        if(handler != null)
            handler(hlItem, e);
    }
}

-make sure the controls are on the aspx form, then
-in the other solution, right click the file and select 'Convert to web Application' after copying the code.

Hi Robasta,

Thanks a lot. It worked. Why do I have to convert to web application? In the demo it doesn't seem to be converted.

'Convert to web app' does some 'magic' in the background. Im not exactly sure what it does but I know that it synchronizes the page.aspx with the page.aspx.designer.cs
If the two files are not in 'sync' thats when you get that error.

so when you get that error, it i usually because you copy a control to the aspx page, but then the designer file does not have the declaration for that control and therefore the control is not accessible in the code behind.
