Hi experts

I have declared a Div
 <div id="NEOPlogout" visible="false" runat="server">

on my Site.master page and on Site.master.cs I have a condition to check that if
if (Session["UserName"] == null)
        {
            NEOPlogout.Visible = false;
            menu.Visible = false;

I receive an error when I compile that NEOPlogout
does not exist in the current context
Any suggestion?

THanks

Check the Site.Master.designer.cs file and see if it has a reference to your <div>. It should look like this:

protected global::System.Web.UI.HtmlControls.HtmlGenericControl NEOPlogout;

If it doesn't have that line I would suggest deleting the <div> and re-adding it to see if you can get VS to generate that line.

BTW, I notice in your sample that the <div> doesn't have a closing tag. I'm assuming that's just a omission in your question but you should make sure there is actually a closing tag in the markup.

Check your code behind file name and Inherits property on the @Page directive, make sure they both match.
.cs class name must be places inside HTML markup.

this issue came generally new page created from existing page inherits property was older page.

Is the DIV declared in the master page itself? What event in the master page are you attempting to access the DIV from?

Yes div is on my site.master page.

I just created a Div to make it visible or invisible depending on the login credentials. SO on my Site.master.cs I check if they are logged in make the div visible and else invisible.

The div has  a closing tag so no problems on that.

I did copied the div from another page, but it is just a simple div tag.
<div id="NEOPlogout" visible="false" runat="server">
                        <table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" id="Extra" align="right" class="PPTHeader">
                        <tr>
                              <td valign="top" align="left" class="PPTHeaderLabel"><b>Welcome</b>&nbsp;&nbsp;<asp:Label ID="txtFirstName" Font-Bold="true" runat="server" CssClass="PPTHeaderLabel" />! </td>&nbsp;&nbsp;
                            
                              <td valign="top" align="right"> <asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink1" NavigateUrl="~/logout.aspx" Font-Bold="true" ForeColor="Black"  Text="&nbsp;&nbsp;Log Out" CssClass="locator_icon" runat="server">  </asp:HyperLink> </td>
                          </tr>
                        </table>
                        </div>


and on my master.cs page i have

on page load.
        if (Session["UserName"] == null)
        {
            NEOPlogout.Visible = false;
            menu.Visible = false;
        }
        else
        {
          NEOPlogout.Visible = true;
            menu.Visible = true;
           txtFirstName.Text = Session["sFirstName"].ToString();
        }

Error
The name 'NEOPlogout' does not exist in the current context
The name 'txtFirstName' does not exist in the current context      

I did tried talking it out, executing, it gave me no erros, and then I placed again, the error came back.

I do have HTML tag on my site.master page
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en">

and the div is currently insite the Html tag.

Thanks

Well, there is nothing logically wrong with your markup/code, so there must be something else somewhere that is invalidating the page somehow.

Start by commenting out any ContentPlaceHolder elements so that you are just left with the master page code itself, and see if that makes any difference.
