Chapter 6 "Theme Dark Grey cannot be found"
I am on the "try it out" on page 231 and am having an issue;
I have added both the Monochrome and the Dark Grey themes to the site. I tried both themes out in the web.config page (<pages theme="DarkGrey" styleSheetTheme="DarkGrey"></pages>) switching back and forth and they both work perfectly. I have added the drop down and the page reloads but doesnt change the theme just as it is supposed to.
Now I have gotten onto "Applying the User-Selected Theme" on page 231 where I code the base page, and now since adding the code to the base page;
Private Sub Page_PreInit(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) _
Dim preferredTheme As HttpCookie = Request.Cookies.Get("PreferredTheme")
If preferredTheme IsNot Nothing Then
Page.Theme = preferredTheme.Value
I keep getting a runtime error ;
Server Error in '/BegASPNET' Application.
Theme 'Dark Grey' cannot be found in the application or global theme directories.

Yet when I remove that new section of code from the Base Page, it works fine again. What am I doing wrong? I don't get any errors in the error list and I was thinking it was because I spelled it "Dark Grey" instead of "DarkGrey" but that doesnt appear to be the issue anywhere I can see either. Any advice?
