Hi,
Could someone please take a look at this and tell me why this might not work… I am trying to pass a bool value true or false in order to do some additional inserts or updates when user clicks on Update button.
The error is: Cannot assign to 'CustAccount' because it is a 'method group'      

Thanks!
 
private bool CustAccount()
  {
     if (Convert.ToInt32(lblTotal.Text) > 30)
     {
      if (txtPrice.Text != "")
      {
        DisplayAccountInfo();
        CustAccount = false;  <-- error
       }
       else
       {
         if (lblRec.Text != "")
       {
        //some code          
             }
  CustAccount = true; <--error
}
         }
    }

protected void btnUpdate_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        if (CustAccount() == false){
        }    
        else{

That should say:
return true;

The whole "assigning the return value to the method name" thing is a VB specific convention. What you are actually doing is returning a value from the method, which in C# uses the "return" keyword.

OK... thanks!
But how should I modify this part of the code to make it to work:

protected void btnUpdate_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        if (CustAccount() == false){  <---------------
        }    
        else{

That should be valid as it is if that method is in the same page as the btnUpdate handler.

Hi avi7;

In C# you need to use the return key word unlike in VB where you can use the method name.

private bool CustAccount()
{
    if (Convert.ToInt32(lblTotal.Text) > 30)
    {
        if (txtPrice.Text != "")
        {
          DisplayAccountInfo();
          return false;                                     // Use return key word
        }
        else
        {
           if (lblRec.Text != "")
           {
               //some code          
           }
           
     // ...
     return true;                     // Use return key word




protected void btnUpdate_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    if (CustAccount() == false)
    {
    
    }    
    else{

Open in new window
