Type or namespace definition, or end-of-file expected error on class create

Hi, I am trying to create a class; however, when I add the code for the GetFirstDayOfNextMonth method I receive an error on the last curly brace, it looks like all my braces match and not sure why I am getting this error.

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Web;

public class CalendarClass
{
    public CalendarClass()
    {        
        protected DateTime GetFirstDayOfNextMonth(int setYear, int setMonth)
        {           
            DateTime lastDate = new DateTime(setYear, setMonth, 1);
            return lastDate;
        }
    }
}

Ok, I think I know what I was doing wrong .... putting the GetFirstDayOfNextMonth in the CalendarClass Method.

To avoid confusion, I wouldn't call a constructor a method  : )

Ah, ok thank you kaufmed ... as you can probably tell, this is my first attempt a creating a class, so your attention is truly appreciated.  I posted my comment without seeing yours first.  So now I have moved the outside of the constructor, and now I want to use the method GetFirstDayOfNextMonth in by code behind.  I can write successfully:

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Web;

public class calClass
{
	public calClass()
	{		
	}
    public DateTime GetFirstDayofCurrentMonth()
    {       
        DateTime firstDate = new DateTime(2014, 1, 1);
        return firstDate;
    }
}

Open in new window

calClass cc = new calClass();

Open in new window


but that doesn't do anything, shouldn't I be able to call the method as:

cc.GetFirstDayofCurrentMonth()
