Hi all,
I'm getting this error for my following program, can anyone explain the below error and how can i solve it?
thanks in advance.

error CS1061: 'System.Collections.Generic.List<AbstractSyntax.Declaration>' does not contain a definition for 'toStringIndented' and no extension method 'toStringIndented' accepting a first argument of type 'System.Collections.Generic.List<AbstractSyntax.Declaration>' could be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)

in my abstractsyntax.cs:
public class CProgram
    {
        List<Declaration> decpart = new List<Declaration>();
        List<Statement> body = new List<Statement>();

        public CProgram(List<Declaration> d, List<Statement> b)
        {
            decpart = d;
            body = b;
        }

        public String toString()
        {
            return toStringIndented("");
        }
        public String toStringIndented(String indent)
        {
            return indent + "Program(\n"
              + decpart.toStringIndented(indent + "  ") + ",\n" <-- error
              + body.toStringIndented(indent + "  ") + "\n" <-- error
              + indent + ")";
        }
    }

public class Declaration
    {
        public List<Declaration> decl = null;

        public Declaration()
        {

        }

        public Declaration(List<Declaration> Declarations)
        {
            this.decl = Declarations;
        }

        public String toString()
        {
            return toStringIndented("");
        }

        public String toStringIndented(String indent)
        {
            StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder();
            sb.Append(indent);
            sb.Append("Declarations(\n");
            int i = 0;
            foreach (Declaration s in decl)
            {
                sb.Append(this.toStringIndented(indent + "  "));
                i++;
                if (i == decl.Count)
                    sb.Append("\n");
                else
                    sb.Append(",\n");
            }
            sb.Append(indent);
            sb.Append(")");
            return sb.ToString();
        }
    }

Fields decpart and body are generic list , thus they do not have that method defined.
You need to loop these lists to call the required method, thus in CProgram class change toStringIndented as follows:
public String toStringIndented(String indent)
        {
            string result = indent + "Program(\n"
            foreach(var item in decpart)
                result = result + item.toStringIndented(indent + "  ")  + ",\n";  
            foreach(var item in body)
                result = result + item.toStringIndented(indent + "  ")  + ",\n";  
            return result  + indent + ")";
        }
