Hello experts,
I have a "web site" that I created in Visual Studio that I want to convert into a "web project" in Visual Studio 2010. I created the "web project" in a new location and then moved my .aspx and .aspx.cs files into that new location and added them/included into my project from Visual Studio and set it as my start page.

The problem is that the controls on the aspx page (for example: lblUploadStatus) are not recognized from my .cs page. I'm getting "The name lblUploadStatus does not exist in the current context."

Does anyone know how to fix? I was working fine in my "web site". Also I noticed that I don't have a .aspx.designer.cs file. Is that part of the problem? Thanks. error message screen shot

Hi,
I faced the same problem some time before. Only solution I fould at that time was to create new pages in new web project and then copy paste the code  from old pages to new pages. Actully its irritating process if you have too many files to add. But you can give a try. I don't know if there is a valid process suported by visual studio.

Regards,
Ram

After selecting convert to web application, VS2010 will recreate the designer.cs file for you.
