Compilation Error

Hello!

I have a page called MoneyFirst.aspx. First line is this:

<%@ Page Language="VB" AutoEventWireup="false" CodeFile="MoneyFirst.aspx.vb" Inherits="MoneyFirst" MasterPageFile="~/MasterPages/TemplateSeven.master" %>

and the code behind file (MoneyFirst.aspx.vb) contains this:


Partial Class MoneyFirst
    Inherits System.Web.UI.Page

End Class

But I still get this error:

Compiler Error Message: ASPNET: Make sure that the class defined in this code file matches the 'inherits' attribute, and that it extends the correct base class (e.g. Page or UserControl).

Source Error:

Line 1:  
Line 2:  Partial Class MoneyFirst
Line 3:      Inherits System.Web.UI.Page
Line 4:  
 
What am I doing wrong?!

Thanks.

Are the files in a folder other than the root of the site? You may have to reference the folder name in front of hte file name. I looked at several of my pages and they all reference the folder name in front of the file.

CodeBehind="About.aspx.vb" Inherits="WebSite.About"

I am not sure why that is, but I built this site from a template. Anything that I have in the root folder of the site is just like you have it, but anything in a folder references the folderName.fileName

Changing the attribute from "codefile" to "codebehind", should do the trick.
