My If statement is working fine... I'd like to show the following label in my .ascx code. Could you please adjust my code

protected System.Web.UI.WebControls.Label searchInstructions;

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            // Set Go Button
            _ibtGo.ImageUrl = "/common/images/misc/button_go_grey-e.gif";

            // english Category
            searchInstructions.Text = "Artist Name:";
           

            if (Sitecore.Context.Language.ToString() == "fr")
            {
                _ibtGo.ImageUrl = "/common/images/misc/button_go_grey-f.gif";
               
                // french Categorie
                searchInstructions.Text = "Nom de l'artiste:";
            }              
        }

================
This is my output
-------------------------
 <TR>
                  <TD colSpan="2">
                        <P><BR>
                              <asp:Label id="searchInstructions" for="TextBox" runat="server">Label</asp:Label></P>
                  </TD>
      </TR>
      <tr>
            <td width="10%"><asp:TextBox ID="_txtSearch" runat="server" CssClass="main"></asp:TextBox></td>
            <td width="90%" valign="bottom"><asp:ImageButton ID="_ibtGo" runat="server" OnClick="_ibtGo_OnClick" /></td>
      </tr>

Do you have the "searchInstructions" label in the code-infront (HTML markup)? If you don't, then you need to add it to the markup and remove it from the first line of your posted code. Alternatively, you can keep the same code you posted, but you have to add the label to the control collection... for example:

this.Controls.Add(searchInstructions);

Hi Strickdd,

Here is the code, please advice where I should put it. I'm new in C#.

 ContentSearchableListOfWorks.ascx ContentSearchableListOfWorks.asc.cs

Thankyou.

I'm not sure if this is how it is or if it was just during the posting, but the first issue I see is that your code-behind file is called "ContentSearchableListOfWorks.asc.cs" - missing an "x". It should be "ContentSearchableListOfWorks.ascx.cs"

Next, is this .Net 1.1? If it is .Net 2.0+, then you shouldn't be declaring all your controls in the code-behind and since you are using partial classes, I believe you are on 2.0+. This leads me to believe that the missing "x" is probably the problem.

Try using the IDE to delete and create another label called searchInstructions. I remember sometimes that used to get funky with 1.1 legacy stuff.
