in my code behind class

protectedvoid btn1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
string url = txt1.Text;
if (url.Contains("youtube.com"))
string urllnk = GetYouTubeID(url);
Response.Write("This URL is not a valid YOUTUBE video link because it does not contain youtube.com in it");
privatestring GetYouTubeID(string youTubeUrl)
{Match regexMatch = Regex.Match(youTubeUrl, "^[^v]+v=(.{11}).*",
if (regexMatch.Success)
return"http://www.youtube.com/v/" + regexMatch.Groups[1].Value +

the name urllnk indeed does not exist in the current context because you need to declare urllink either as a public property or protected variable with page scope.
 public string urllnk { get; set; }
Once you've done that you could use it as an inline expression.
