Windows Phone 7 Bing Maps

Last Modified: 2014-11-12
I am attempting to write an app for Windows Phone 7 that connects to the Bing Maps Geocode service to provide latitude and longitude for a given zip code.  The code is attached.

On line 21 (the line that reads):

   GeocodeResponse geocodeResponse = geocodeService.GeocodeAsync(geocodeRequest);

I am getting an error that states:

"Cannot implicitly convert type 'void' to 'WeatherApp.GeocodeService.GeocodeResponse'"

The underlined section is the entire clause after the equal sign.

Any help would be much appreciated.
public string GeocodeAddress(string zipCode)
            string results = "";
            string key = "MyBingMapsKey";
            GeocodeService.GeocodeRequest geocodeRequest = new GeocodeService.GeocodeRequest();

            geocodeRequest.Credentials = new GeocodeService.Credentials();
            geocodeRequest.Credentials.ApplicationId = key;

            geocodeRequest.Query = zipCode;

            ConfidenceFilter[] filters = new ConfidenceFilter[1];
            filters[0] = new ConfidenceFilter();
            filters[0].MinimumConfidence = GeocodeService.Confidence.High;

            GeocodeOptions geocodeOptions = new GeocodeOptions();
            geocodeOptions.Filters = filters;
            geocodeRequest.Options = geocodeOptions;

            GeocodeServiceClient geocodeService = new GeocodeServiceClient();
            GeocodeResponse geocodeResponse = geocodeService.GeocodeAsync(geocodeRequest);

            if (geocodeResponse.Results.Length > 0)
                results = String.Format("Latitude: {0}\nLongitude: {1}",
                results = "No Results Found";

            return results;
