asp.net classes in web site

I have a fundamental question that I hope doesn't get too many laughs.

I have a web site in visual web developer express in c#. I've added a couple of class files to the app_code folder (these are 3rd party class files, I did not write them).

When I instantiate, I get an error:

"The type or namespace name 'Customer' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)"

Here's the code snippet:

    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {

        CustomerPost newCustomer = new CustomerPost();
        newCustomer.Code = new Guid().ToString();
        newCustomer.Company = "CompanyName";
        newCustomer.FirstName = "FirstName";
        newCustomer.LastName = "LastName";
        newCustomer.Email = "test@test.com";
        newCustomer.PlanCode = PlanCodeEnum.Trial;

        Customer returnCustomer = CheddarGetter.CreateCustomer(newCustomer);
}

Open in new window


What am I missing here? I know it has to be simple :)

Thank you!

Customer is a class.

Do you have Customer.cs file?

If you already have the .cs files in your AppCode folder, then you just need to add your "using" statements to the top of your code-behind so that you can use the objects.  Open up the .cs files in your AppCode folder and look for the namespace.  Copy the value of the namespace and go back to your codebehind file.  In the code behind, type in

using <namespace that you copied>;

So, if the AppCode file said this:

namespace CrazyJunk

your using statements would say:

using CrazyJunk;
