Hello experts,

I am a novice programmer and need to know how to get a value from one method to another - to explain what I mean; the following method returns a value:

 private string isSelectedType()
                string selectedPerson = string.Empty;
            {
                string selectedPerson = string.Empty;
               
                if (rbStudent.Checked)
                 {
                selectedPerson = "Student";
                }
                if (rbStaff.Checked)
                {
                 selectedPerson = "Employee";
                }
                if (rbOther.Checked)
                {
                 selectedPerson = "Other";
                }
               
                return isSelectedType();
               
            }

Now, I need the value returned by isSelectedType to be placed into a string variable used in another method: some thing like this:
 
string tType;
tType =  isSelectedType();

How can I achieve the above without going into a constant loop ?

Thank you

oops - spotted another mistake in your code

private string isSelectedType()
                //  THIS SHOULD NOT BE HERE  string selectedPerson = string.Empty;
            {
                string selectedPerson = string.Empty;
               
                if (rbStudent.Checked)
                 {
                selectedPerson = "Student";
                }
                if (rbStaff.Checked)
                {
                 selectedPerson = "Employee";
                }
                if (rbOther.Checked)
                {
                 selectedPerson = "Other";
                }
               
                return selectedPerson ;
                //return isSelectedType();
               
            }
