Help: Issue with JavaScript Calling WebService from ASP.NET 4

I seen to have run into an error that I have found documented on the web from a few years ago but the suggestions don't help me. My environment is Win7x64/VS2010 / ASP.NET 4 / VB.NET and a target cpu of x86.

I have tried various websites to get a working example but they all result in the same error message "Microsoft JScript runtime error: 'xxxxxxxxx' is undefined" . I

Below is some code extracts from a MS site that has JavaScript calling a WebService which I'd appreciate some help with getting to work.

HTML and JS code...

<%@ Page Language="VB" AutoEventWireup="false" CodeFile="Default.aspx.vb" Inherits="_Default" %>

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

    function Button1_onclick() 
            {
                ret = SimpleService.SayHello(document.getElementById('Text1').value, OnComplete, OnTimeOut, OnError);
                return(true);
            }

function OnComplete(args) {
document.getElementById('Text2').innerText = args;
            }
            function OnTimeOut(args) {
            alert("Service call timed out.");
            }

function OnError(args) {
alert("Error calling service method.");
}
</script>

The WebService....

Imports System.Web.Services
Imports System.Web.Services.Protocols
Imports System.ComponentModel

' To allow this Web Service to be called from script, using ASP.NET AJAX, uncomment the following line.
<System.Web.Script.Services.ScriptService()> _
<System.Web.Services.WebService(Namespace:="http://tempuri.org/")> _
<System.Web.Services.WebServiceBinding(ConformsTo:=WsiProfiles.BasicProfile1_1)> _
<ToolboxItem(False)> _
Public Class SimpleService
    Inherits System.Web.Services.WebService

    <WebMethod()> _
    Public Function SayHello(ByVal inStr As String) As String
        Return "Hello : " + inStr + "; Thanks for visiting."
    End Function

End Class

Ok, I have the answer.

1) From the "Solution Explorer" I right-clicked on the "asmx" file and select "View Markup"

2) Make a note of the class value. In my case the line read ...
<%@ WebService Language="vb" CodeBehind="SimpleService.asmx.vb" Class="modal3.SimpleService" %>

Open in new window


3) I then amended line 11 of my html/js file from
ret = SimpleService.SayHello(document.getElementById('Text1').value, OnComplete, OnTimeOut, OnError);
                return(true);

Open in new window

to
ret = [b]modal3.[/b]SimpleService.SayHello(document.getElementById('Text1').value, OnComplete, OnTimeOut, OnError);
                return(true);

Just a guess,
if you are using any URL rewriting mechanism,please exclude the web service from that.

None of that going on!

Formatting seems a bit odd!

In my code above the line with "modal3." should read "modal3", i.e. no bold HTML tags
