Hey there,

Not sure exactly the best way to approach this because I don't really know what I'm doing but, I guess that's why I'm here!  :)

Anyway - I have created an ASP.NET MVC 2 Web Application in Visual Studio 2010.  I'm trying to get a working version of the DHTMLXScheduler component on my page using the tutorial located HERE.  The tutorial is in C# but my application has to be in VB (I'll be working with another programmer after he gets back from vacation so I'm trying to pull the load for two weeks).  

So, I have taken the .cs specific bits and translated them using THIS which seems to have worked fairly well because I can get the calendar displayed on my Index.aspx view.  So the first part of the tutorial is working for me.  I've got the view displaying the calendar.

The trouble comes in step 2 which involves getting data to display in the calendar.  To describe the problem behavior - I run the application from the IDE and it starts to load the page but, I get a dialog box that has what looks like the contents of an asp.net server error page.  The following looks like the important bits (I have stripped out some of the tags that were in the dialog box to make it easier for you to read):

Compiler Error Message: </b>BC30451: &#39;foreach&#39; is not declared. It may be
inaccessible due to its protection level.

Source Error:

Line 1:  &lt;%@ Page Language=&quot;VB&quot; Inherits=&quot;System.Web.Mvc.ViewPage&quot; ContentType=&quot;text/xml&quot; %&gt;

Line 2:  &lt;data&gt;

&lt;% foreach (var myevent in Model) { %&gt;
Line 4:  &lt;event id=&quot;&lt;%=myevent.id%&gt;&quot;&gt;

Line 5:  &lt;start_date&gt;&lt;![CDATA[&lt;%= String.Format(&quot;{0:MM/dd/yyyy HH:mm}&quot;,myevent.start_date) %&gt;]]&gt;&lt;/start_date&gt;</pre></code>


So it looks like the problem is somewhere in Data.aspx which contains the following code:
<%@ Page Language="VB" Inherits="System.Web.Mvc.ViewPage" ContentType="text/xml" %>
<data>
<% foreach (var myevent in Model) { %>
<event id="<%=myevent.id%>">
<start_date><![CDATA[<%= String.Format("{0:MM/dd/yyyy HH:mm}",myevent.start_date) %>]]></start_date>
<end_date><![CDATA[<%= String.Format("{0:MM/dd/yyyy HH:mm}",myevent.end_date) %>]]></end_date>
<text><![CDATA[<%= myevent.text%>]]></text>
</event>
<% } %>
</data>

Any idea where I might have gone wrong?  From googling around I'm thinking I've left something out that the VB needs and C# doesn't but I wouldn't even begin to know what that is.  

There are a bunch of pieces to this and I'd be happy to post anything you might need.

Thanks in advance for any help.
