Hello everyone.

How to fix this error? Thanks in advance, ocaccy

m3h = Convert.ToDouble(Settings.csv["csv_" + Xmonth.ToString("00") + "_" + Xhour.ToString("00")]);

Open in new window

This statement returns this error message:
( 'Monitor.Settings.csv' is a 'type', which is not valid in the given context )
The apps has the Settings.cs class; "I have attached a piece of the class code below".
 
    public class Settings
        {
		public class csv
            {
            public static string csv_01_01="2345";
            public static string csv_01_02="1650";
			}
			
	        public static void Write()
            {
            IniFile ini=new IniFile(Monitor.malyt.Folder_users+Monitor.malyt.ConfigINI);
            ini.WriteValue("csv","csv_01_01",csv.csv_01_01.ToString());
            ini.WriteValue("csv","csv_01_02",csv.csv_01_02.ToString());
			}
		}

Open in new window


The file for the app to read the values "file.ini":
[csv]
csv_01_01=1611
csv_01_02=1667
csv_01_03=1714
.
csv_01_24=1560
csv_02_01=2116
csv_02_02=2165
csv_02_03=2212
.
csv_02_24=1569
.
csv_12_24=2063

well, in the  class csv your are only defining strings and not properties to be accessed from out side

you can create an object of settings like this
Settings x = new Settings();

then try to use the object x to access properties inside the class

then when you format your string like "csv_01_01" you need to compare it with the values you have in ur file

Your Settings is a nested class since it has a class , 'csv' inside.  Also you have all the properties and methods of class 'csv' are static , but the class isn't. So for the 'csv' for to access its method it has also a static class.

Also in your code you are trying to access the csv properties as indexers. And we can't do that because of your csv structure. If you want to access them as indexers then you should have your TWO properties in csv class as type Dictionary.

So, the app has this static properties:
                monthHour[1, 1] = Convert.ToDouble(Settings.csv.csv_01_01);
                monthHour[1, 2] = Convert.ToDouble(Settings.csv.csv_01_02);
                monthHour[1, 3] = Convert.ToDouble(Settings.csv.csv_01_03);
                monthHour[1, 4] = Convert.ToDouble(Settings.csv.csv_01_04);
                monthHour[1, 5] = Convert.ToDouble(Settings.csv.csv_01_05);

Open in new window
