Solved - setting a value to a variable---does a missing bracket cause this error?

I get this error, maybe the braces are not matched up:

    string new_time_sent_range = null;

    new_time_sent_range = "l";

invalid token '=' in class, struct, or interface declaration

Your error is elsewhere.  Check the integrity of your class (esp. mismatched braces, missing semicolon, etc.)

You can not assign values to variable in class level. You can do only declaration. Modify the code like below:
    public partial class Form1 : Form
        string new_time_sent_range = null;        

        public Form1()
            new_time_sent_range = "l";

Note: you can assign values at class level, but only in the initializer, such as:

string new_time_sent_range = "l";
