Default Problem with Chapter 2 First Page


I am really interested in learning ASP.NET and eventually setting up my own websites and maybe one for my office. So far I have become proficient with XHTML and CSS, but I am having a bit of trouble following along creating the first page in chapter 2.

I typed "Label1.Text = "Hello world; the time is now " & DateTime.Now.ToString()" like the book says, but I cannot get the page to come up. The error list tells me that there is an error with "Label1" not being declared. Can anyone help me with this? Another question if I may. Should I pick up a book and learn Visual Basic and or C# before trying this book or is it sufficient with just XHTML and CSS? Thanks in advance for your help with question.

Hi there,

What book is this about? You posted in a generic ASP.NET book, but you're better off posting this in a book specific forum. If it's about Beginning ASP.NET 3.5, would you mind posting the question again in its forum here: http://p2p.wrox.com/forum.asp?FORUM_ID=386

That makes it easier for everyone (including future readers) to keep track of posts.

That said, take a look at the Markup section of the page. Do you have a Label control in there? Does it have the same casing as Label1?

If that doesn't help, can you post the relevant code for the page and its code behind?

With regards to programming: the Beginning book has chapter 5 devoted to programming in C# and VB. Obviously, a single chapter is not enough to make you an all-round chapter, so it's worth looking into other programming books as well as they can provide you with a lot more detail. Beginning C# 2008 or Beginning VB 2008 would be an excellent start.
