aspdotnet_website_programming thread: Users/Admin/Default.aspx produces a cast error


Message #1 by "Tony Lin" <tony@l...> on Mon, 10 Feb 2003 10:30:09
I have downloaded the code for this book, compiled it, and have been 
generally successful running it.  However, the link to "Users-Admin" on 
the home Default.aspx page, does not work.  When the browser tries to load 
that ref which points to "ThePhile/Modules/Users/Admin/Default.aspx", I 
get a Page Error: "Specified cast is not valid".

I have tried stepping through the CS code, and it executes all right up 
through and including the InitializeComponent(), at which point I get a 
Page Error.  It fails right after completing the OnInit() method.

I have looked at this page, both the cs code and the html code, I can't 
find anything obviously wrong.  Maybe I have missed something, but I 
certainly don't see an obvious cast that would lead to a cast error.

Has anyone else encountered this problem?

I just found the answer to my posting.  The Users-Admin link must be 
accessed after you login.  Once I login, I can access the page.
