ASP.NET C#: call functions from System.Web.Services.WebMethod

Hello

On my web site i have declared a WebMethod on the code behind page, which I call from a JavaScript function. I have declared the WebMethod like this:

 [System.Web.Services.WebMethod]
  public static string GetKeyInfo(string ComInput, string CustomerId, string Sender, string InsertAmount)
  { 
        ----- MY CODE -----
}

Open in new window


I can call this WebMethod from the Javascript without problems and it works fine.

My problem is, that I can't call any of the other functions I have on my code behind page.

Does anyone know if it is possible to call other code behind functions from a WebMethod? And if so, how?

You must move the functions in  code behind page to another class.

It can't call instance methods of the page if that is what you mean. The web method is static so there is not Page context available for it to be able to call methods that require an instance of the page. You can call other static methods though.

Thanks it works.

You just have to remember to declare the as static, like:

public static class ClassName
{
}

and the functions should be static as well:

public static string FunctionName()
{
}

At least that is what worked for me :o)
