I'm a noob to C# so please excuse me if this is a dumb question. I created a button click event to create an account. I want to pass the populated fields to a database. I've created two different .CS sheets. The first I'm having a problem with. The error message I receive is "An object reference is required for the non-static field, method, or property 'clsDataLayer.CreateUser(string, string, string, string)'. Here is the code:

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
using MySql.Data.MySqlClient;


namespace WSC1
{
    public partial class Registration : System.Web.UI.Page
    {
       
       private void btnCreateAccount_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
           
            if (TxtPassword1.Text != custPassword.Text)
            {
                lblPasswordStatus.Text = "The passwords do not match";

            }



            if (clsDataLayer.CreateUser(custFName.Text , custLName.Text , custEmail.Text , custLogin.Text , custPassword.Text ) == true)
            {
                lblNewCustomerStatus.Text = "The user was successfully added!";
            }

            else
                lblNewCustomerStatus.Text = "The user could not be added";
        }

       
    }

}

Try putting the word static in the cs file in front of the CreateUser function.

Roughly
public bool CreateUser((string, string, string, string, string)
change to
public static bool CreateUser((string, string, string, string, string)
