Default Variable Declarations

I am doing a very simple page to change the background color of the page based on a checked radio button. I'm using VS.NET, so putting the code-behind. The problem is that when I declare my variable in the HTML page, the code-behind page doesn't recognize the declaration and won't compile, and when I put it in the code-behind page, I get this error when it try to view the page:

BC30390: 'LearningSite.RadioButtonAutoPostBack.strBackGroun dColor' is not accessible in this context because it is 'Private'.

We'll, it is NOT private. I didn't put it into anything that says "Private" Here is what it looks like:


Public Class RadioButtonAutoPostBack
    Inherits System.Web.UI.Page
    Dim strBackGroundColor As String = "white"

    Public Sub BackColor_Changed(ByVal s As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
        strBackGroundColor = s.Text
    End Sub

End Class


What now?

Ah, trial and error. My favorite method of programming. As it turns out, all I had to do was drop the word "Public" in front of my Dim statement and viola! It works.

Off to create more problems now... :-)

The more I learn, the less I know.
