ASPX page can not access Code Behind

In my page I try and access a property defined in the code behind.  The Property is called RDDB and it's defined in the code behind, yet can not be found in the aspx page.

Any idea why not?

The order of events dictates that the codebehind is processed on the server first.  Your script block should be moved to the codebehind as well.

What [Nash2334] said.

An alternative would be to maybe put a hidden field in the page and push the value to it on Page.Load.

Change the fist line of code behind page


<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeBehind="TableList.aspx.cs" Inherits="RDDBWebAdmin.TableList" %>

Open in new window


<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeBehind="TableList.aspx.cs" Inherits="RDDBWebAdmin.Pages.TableList" %>

Open in new window

Kusala's solution seems to be correct. The namespace you use in your aspx should contain the definitions you try to use in codebehind.

Yes, it was a namespace issue.
